SWISS TOURER

LAOS

 

Laos can be compared to Thailand 30 years ago. Through their mode of transport cycle tourists can discover every nook & cranny and experience a kind of time travel.

 

What is Laos about?

 

  • A nation that has seen very little development and kept its traditions

  • Temples, friendly children and a deeply ingrained Buddhist culture

  • Amazing landscapes shaped by mountains, plains and the Mekong river

 

What might surprise you:

 

  • The life style, a very laid back atmosphere

  • A country with simple, friendly and innocent people

 

The pros for a cycle tourist:

 

  • Many regions are untouched

  • The most exotic feeling you possibly can get in South East Asia

  • Little traffic in the Northern and very Southern part of the country

 

The challenges:

 

  • The climate and heat

  • Poor medical facilities

  • Low hygiene standards

  • Limited accommodation in remote areas

  • Large mountains in the northern part

 

Who would like Laos:

 

  • All those who look for real adventure & authenticity

  • People who like challenges
