Laos is the only landlocked country in Southeast Asia. It is also one of Asia’s most undiscovered countries due to it only opening its doors to tourism since the late 1980s. Since then the country has emerged as a destination for travellers looking for a long-lost Southeast Asia, and they find it in Laos’ lush forests, ancient temples, sizzling markets and traces of the country’s French colonial roots.
