Laos Travel BlogTravel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Laos
Hello and welcome to our Laos travel blog. You will find all our Laos blog posts in this section of our website.
Maybe you found our Laos travel blog because you are considering a visit to South East Asia, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to Laos. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Laos.
We have travelled to Laos many times – in fact, Laos was the second country we visited together way back in 1997 (New York was our first trip a few months prior).
Our Laos blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
