"The Greatest Experience Of My Life!!!" Laos by AshleeS

Laos Travel Guide: 3,610 reviews and 8,882 photos

The Reason

Well my sister-in-law's family is originally from Laos and while her parents have been back to visit many times her and her sisters have not. They invited me along for the ride and to help me understand a bit more about her cultural and childhood. So we went, my brother, my sister-in-law, two of her sisters and their husbands, and her two parents a friend to one of the sisters and I. If It was not for her and her family I would have never experienced this country. Let's not lie though this was not a roughing it trip we spoiled ourselves alot!!!!!

A Simple Life

It is like nothing I have ever seen. Even in Thailand they had 7-11 and Pizza Hut. Laos has nothing I think I saw one gas station that I had heard of before. Life is so simple and laid back. Even the rush hour traffic which we would joke about is nothing. Being in a country such as this really opens you eyes.

Look Elsewhere

just to let you all know these pages have mostly to do with Vientaine while other Lao locations are under the major city, sorry I am new at this.
