Cultural Heritage

Southern Laos is a land awaiting discovery by modern adventurers. Yet, it is already ancient, having been discovered, inhabited, cherished, and lost, time and again. From the arrival of ethnic tribes 1,000 years ago to the Chenla kingdom in the 5th century, the Lan Xang kingdom in the 14th century and the French colonialists in the 19th century, Southern Laos is layered in rich history. Discover this fascinating, secluded land for yourself where centuries-old temples lie half shrouded in jungles, and the relics of colonialism still claim glory under the tropical sun.
