Are you in love with waterfalls? Than it’s time to write down Laung Prabang on your bucket list. The Kuang Si Falls are one of the most beautfiul waterfalls you can find in Asia. The turquoise water flowing down over the rocks makes you feel like you are in a mystic garden. And this is only one of the natural treasures this country has to offer.
Luang Prabang is only one of the interesting places to visit in this country. If you travel to the centre of the country you can enjoy the gorgeous landscape Vang Vieng. I seriously think this landscape is one of the bests rural landscapes I remember from my own backpacking trip through South East Asia.
Vientiane the capital itself is not necessarily a must-visit, but is sometimes unavoidable if you want to travel through the country. My advice is to limit your stay in the capital and rather use your time to explore the more remote towns of Laos.

In 2016, he decided to quit his job as a stock analyst and started doing what he always dreamed of: travelling through South East Asia and helping other people plan their trips. When he is not working on Gecko Routes, you’ll find him surfing in the ocean or exploring the best gems of Indonesia.
