    Laos overview

    Laos and its fascinating history and rich culture has developed over thousands of years. The country was once home to several ancient civilisations, including the Khmer Empire, which left behind magnificent temples and architectural wonders. Some are still standing today, such as the UNESCO-listed Vat Phu in Champasak. 

    In the 14th century, the Lan Xang Kingdom was founded, which became one of the most prosperous kingdoms in Southeast Asia. Laos came under French colonial rule in the late 19th century before gaining independence from France in 1953. 

    The Vietnam War had a big impact on Laos, due to its proximity to Vietnam and its role as a major supply route on what is known as the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Laos also underwent a devastating civil war for a period post-independence. Each of these periods has left its mark in the architecture visible in the country today.  

    Buddhism is the prominent religion in Laos, and the country is well known for its stunning temples. Laos is home to over 100 ethnic minority groups, all contributing to the rich tapestry of Lao culture. The country is well known for its silks, handicrafts and artefacts, and festivals, music and dance form part of Laos’ rich and diverse culture.  

    What to eat

    Lao cuisine is bursting with fresh flavours, herbs and spices. Be sure to try laap (larb), a popular minced meat salad with fresh herbs and lime, the tam mak hoong (spicy papaya salad) and feast away at a traditional Laos barbecue.
