Laos is a landlocked South-East Asian country that has grown popular over the years due to its geographical and natural features. The mountainous view and quiet life in the country have been a continuous source of tourist attraction.
Laos is known for its diversity in cultures, food, arts, and festivals due to many ethnic groups. If you are looking for a vacation spot far away from the city’s hustle and bustle, if you seek a peaceful and beautiful place to host your vacation, Laos is definitely the place. Below are some of the most exciting tourist attractions in Laos.
- The Kuang Si Caves And Waterfalls
The Kuang Si Waterfalls is one of the most outstanding waterfalls in Laos. There are so many pools beneath the waterfall falling over 50 meters below, where you can swim and have a good view of the waterfalls above you. The caves are also impressive as they house thousands of little Buddha statues for you to see and appreciate.
- Elephant Village Sanctuary
Touring the Elephant village allows you to view, interact, and ride different elephants. The sanctuary is an educational facility that teaches you how to care for elephants: like bathing and feeding them. You will also get to learn a lot about these fascinating animals during your visit.

If you want to learn in detail the cultural and ethnic history of Laos, this center is the perfect place to visit. The etymology center focuses mainly on the four major ethnic groups that make up the country. There are also many collections and artifacts of interest from these ethnic groups at the museum.
