Laos, bordering China, Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, is a real gem in Southeast Asia. With its 236,800 km2, the country is about 3.5 times as large as Belgium and the Netherlands together.
Laos is still undiscovered by mass tourism so the country has retained its authenticity. For many people, Laos is the great unknown in the Far East, but in recent years the country is becoming increasingly popular among travelers. Both nature and culture lovers are definitely in their element during a trip through Laos.
Vientiane, the capital and largest city of Laos, is situated along the Mekong river at on this point it forms the border with Thailand. It is a quiet town with the appearance of a large provincial town and a nice city to stay a couple of days for sightseeing.
When you're traveling through Laos, a visit to the ancient capital of Luang Prabang can not be missed. Without a visit to this cozy, charming town your Laos trip will not be complete! The atmosphere in Luang Prabang is very relaxed. Many travelers who have ever visited this town find it one of the nicest places in Southeast Asia.
It is great to stroll through the narrow streets and watch everyday life in this town.
Cambodia is famous for the incredible Angkor Wat temple complex rightly considered to be one of the wonders of the world. There is also much more to see in this fascinating country, with a rich colonial history, a fascinating Buddhist culture and countless smiling faces.
Decades of war, communism and political unrest rendered Cambodia out of bounds for most travelers. It was only in the late 1990s that a peace treaty between the government and remnants of the Khmer Rouge forces ensured that foreigners could once again visit the country in safety and explore the attractions of this beautiful and fascinating land.
Phnom Penh, the capital, is literally a 'phoenix arisen from the ashes'. It is hard to believe that in 1979, during the final days of Pol Pot's regime, it was completely destroyed and virtually devoid of a living soul, much akin to Warsaw after World War II.
Cambodia's capital may be chaotic, but there are moments of peace to be found. Relax in a riverfront bar, find serenity in a local temple or soak up the grand atmosphere of the Royal Palace.
Siem Reap has vibrant markets, cool bars, excellent restaurants and superb street food. The highlight is a visit to Angkor Wat and the surrounding ruins of the ancient Khmer kingdom, surely one of the greatest and most visually stunning archaeological sites in the world.
Sihanoukville offers brilliant beaches and a balmy, tropical climate, and it's a great beach break for weary travellers. Bask in golden sunshine, swim in azure waters, visit a nearby island or laze the day away swinging in a hammock.
The kingdom of Cambodia, as it is officially known, is bordered on the west and northwest by Thailand, on the northeast by Laos, the east and southeast by Vietnam, and the southwest by the Gulf of Thailand.
The sensational ruins of Angkor may be the main attractions, but Cambodia's exquisite temples, secluded beaches, charming villages and magical markets deserve lots of attention too. With genuine locals always ready to share a sincere smile, Cambodia will steal your heart and enrich your spirit.
