Laos

Thailand shares borders with Laos to the north and northeast. This mountainous and landlocked country is one of the poorest in Southeast Asia and was forgotten by tourists for a long time but nowadays the tourism in Laos grows significantly. The country attracts visitors with its laid-back lifestyle and beautiful landscapes formed by the Mekong River and surrounding mountains. Even if it’s a poor country, prices here are not that low and can be several times that of Thailand.
