Attractions from Laos

Ho Chi Minh Trail (Laos)
In Savannakhet you will find the Ho Chi Minh Trails. It is a network of trails parallel to the Vietnamese border. The trails were used by the North Vietnamese troops during the Vietnam War and by The Viet Minh against the French in the 1950's. Even though the Vietnamese denied the existence of these trails, and the Americans denied having bombed them, it is possible to see helicopters, battle planes and other military equipment spread around the trails today.
The Khammouane Province (Laos)
The Khammouane province has two large wilderness areas. One of the areas consists of large forest areas, while the other primarily consists of limestone. The limestone area is a labyrinth of impressive limestone caves, rivers and jungle. You can walk around in this labyrinth and experience an absolutely phenomenal nature area. In the monsoon, it is not possible to access this area by road; you can only get there by boat.
The Phousi Mountain (Luang Prabang)
The Phousi Mountain is situated in the centre of Luang Prabangs. To climb up the mountain can be hard but it is definitely worth the trip. There is a formidable view from the top of the mountain where you can see "The Royal Palace", and the surrounding rivers and villages.
The Royal Palace Museum (Luang Prabang)
The museum is situated in the old royal palace and has a large collection of artefacts from former kings of the Lane Xang Empire. The French built the palace in 1904 to replace a small wooden palace. The museum's exhibition is outstanding and gives a good insight into the history of Laos.
The Wat Xieng Thong Temple (Luang Prabang)
The Xieng Thong Temple is situated 300 metres from where the Khan River runs into the Mekong river. King Setthathilat built the temple in 1560 and it is the most fascinating temple in Luang Prabang. The combination of coloured glass and gold coating gives this temple a very beautiful appearance. The beautiful roof makes you think of a bird that has spread its wings out.
