Laos Travel Insurance
Under the French rule between late 19th and mid 20th century, Laos, a Southeast Asian nation, is a mix of European influence and Buddhism. Its capital, Vientiane, is a slow paced city situated near the famous Mekong River (longest Southeast Asian river and seventh longest in Asia). Vientiane is home to the shrine, That Luang, which purportedly contains Buddha’s breastbone. One can also visit the Patuxai war memorial or roam the morning market of Talat Sao. Laos is not just a backwater but delights travelers with its European architecture, Buddhist monasteries, and mountainous landscape.
Take a few days trek through Laos’ pristine forests and get to know remote villagers. On your way, you will come across caves, waterfalls, ancient ruins, and wildlife areas. How about a boat ride through a cave? Yes, you read it right! A river passes through the 7.5 km long limestone cave of Konglor (in Khammouane province), offering an adventurous boat ride. Hire a bicycle or a mountain bike to see the nation’s scenic hilly areas. A popular extreme sport activity is Kayaking and is available along the river Nam Hin Boun, the river Nam Lik, and the river Nam Xong. For cultural low-down, head to Luang Prabang, an ancient town that preserves a large number of Buddhist temples. Situated about 500 km from Vientiane is yet another heritage site: The Wat Phou Champasack landscape. On weekends, follow the locals to Southeast Asia’s largest waterfall (by volume): the impressive Khone Phapheng. While most of Laos’ National Protected Areas (NPAs) are at remote locations, they draw visitors for bird watching and camping.
