Where to go in Northern Laos
List of regions
Traditional wooden and bamboo houses are a feature of Muang Khua, a scenic town at the confluence of the Nam Phak and Nam La rivers. It's known for its hot springs - by the Muang La Resort - where villagers come to bathe and relax, surrounded by rainforest.
Vientiane is a quiet, yet charming, capital city that shares the same friendly, laidback air as the rest of Laos.
A visit to the former royal capital of Luang Prabang is a highlight of any trip to Laos - a World Heritage ‘city' of magnificent gilded temples at the junction of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers.
