What to do in Laos: The most bombed country in the world?

Laos is a country full of charm, culture and history. From the ancient temples to the vibrant nightlife, every corner of this country has something to tell. And despite being small, don't underestimate what Laos can offer!

Now, the five must-see places in Laos: The mystical city of Luang Prabang, the beautiful and imposing Pha That Luang in Vientiane, the spectacular Kuang Si Waterfalls, the mysterious Bolaven Plateau and the impressive Pak Ou caves.


And how are you going to manage there? The official currency of Laos is the Kip. The main language is Laotian, but English and French are also spoken. And good news for us Brazilians: we don't need a visa to visit Laos for up to 30 days!

We entered Laos via the Thai border, by bus, spent the day and returned, as we were well inland, we saw a lot of poverty and a very simple country.


Laos is one of the few remaining communist countries in the world, with a rapidly developing economy but still facing several challenges such as poverty and a lack of infrastructure. The economy is dominated by agriculture, which employs the majority of the population.

If you're thinking about how much it costs to travel to Laos, don't worry! Laos is one of the cheapest destinations in Southeast Asia. Food, accommodation and tours can be very affordable if planned correctly.


Now, the curiosity that gives this video its title: during the Vietnam War, Laos was the most bombed country in the world, per inhabitant. This is a sad part of the country's history that many are unaware of.
