One of the least developed countries in Southeast Asia, but with one of the best landscapes in this whole territory.
A place of simple and smiley people, which will make you live unique experiences, at a much lower rate than you are probably used to. A special destination to learn to do nothing, and to disconnect completely from everything, watching people living in a slow and completely different way.

Travel among the cities: Despite being one of the least developed countries in Southeast Asia, the transport system between cities is quite good, so it is easy to move to make connections.
Unlike in their neighboring countries, the people of Laos do not feel identified with bargaining, so the price of things is more or less the same everywhere. Which makes it much less tiring.
There are sleeping buses for trips between cities. You can find cheaper bus prices on local buses, but they are much more tiring, and take longer too.
