Take an adventure holiday in LAOS with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.
Laos is a landlocked country located in the centre of Indochina. It has common borders with China, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Laos is 236,800 sq. km in land area, the major part being mountainous and forested. Geographically, the country is divided into three areas : the North, the Central and the Southern parts.
The Mekong River flows through 1865 km of Laos territory and forms the major portion of the border with Thailand (1500 km). 60% of the water entering this major river system originates in Laos. The three highest mountains are all located in Xieng Khouang province; Phu Bia - 2.820 m, Phu Xao - 2.690 m, Phu Xamxum - 2.620 m, (Phu is the Lao word for mountain).
Laos supports a population of more than 5 million inhabitants comprising 68 ethnic groups, such as Hmong, Khmu, Yao, Akha, Ikor, Lu, etc., each tribe with its own distinctive customs. The population density of Laos is 19 people per square km, making the country one of the most sparsely populated countries in Asia and quite different from its neighbouring countries.
