Laos-Guide-999.com is all about Laos. It is written by a person who was born in, grew up in, lives in and loves this country.
I created this website to be a place to share the first-hand information and experience that I have accumulated over the years, growing up, living and travelling in this small, charming country.
Before you jump start I would like to let you know that this country is not just another off-the-beaten-track destination, there is much to do and see in this beautiful country and you will be welcome, for Laos is known for its friendly people with their ready smiles. Few visitors leave here without remembering a happy encounter with those whose land they have travelled through.
A piece of advice: Don't come here looking for big shopping centres, cinema complexes, skyscrapers, crowded streets or fancy nightlife – if you do you will be disappointed. These are the things that it does not have (updated: a few shopping centres and cinema complexes have been built recently) and most visitors love the country for all the things it lacks.
If you are after a breathtaking getaway, being close to nature, enjoying a relaxing lifestyle, peace and quiet and meeting with friendly people, then Laos is your ideal destination. I'm sure you will fall in love with it when you are here.
I hope that all the information I have shared here can help make your travel preparations stress free or at least a little easier and enjoyable. And I hope it is enough to inspire you to come and see this special land of Laos - the hidden gem of Southeast Asia.
Enjoy exploring, and stay tuned for more updates.
