Description:   Laos is a landlocked country in South East Asia. It shares borders with Vietnam, China, Burma, Thailand and Cambodia. It is rich in natural resources but has yet to exploit its wealth. The main reason why people visit Laos is to go to Luang Prabang. Located on the Mekong River it is home to some very beautiful Buddhist temples.
