Laos is a pastoral paradise. Fed by the mighty Mekong river, its landscape is lush, filled with a diversity of life. It’s home to the endangered Irrawaddy dolphin and the clouded leopard. It has cool mountainous climates in the north, and warmer, tropical weather towards the south. In Luang Prabang, we had breakfast outdoors, warmed by hot coals under our feet, overlooking lush temperate rainforests. In the Kingfisher Ecolodge, we drank ice cold Beer Lao overlooking a hot plain where elephants fed on scrub. We hiked up waterfalls, ate daily in the best food market in the world (this was in Luang Prabang), took a river cruise around the four thousand islands and visited some of the small villages in the south. It was a truly wonderful experience we would recommend to anyone. Change comes quickly to developing countries in South East Asia, and we would love to return to Laos to experience it all anew.
