Laos is a landlocked country in Southeast Asia, bordered by Burma and China to the northwest, Vietnam to the east, Cambodia to the south, and Thailand to the west.

Did you know that:
1. Since December 1975, the official name of Laos has actually been “Lao People’s Democratic Republic” – but to this day, everyone still calls it Laos.
2. The Khone Papeng, which is found in Laos, is the largest waterfall in the whole of Southeast Asia.
3. Laos has been tagged as the “World’s Most Bombed Country.” Over two billion tons of bombs were dropped in Laos during the Vietnam War.
4. The jars in the Plain of Jars are each big enough to hold a person. The largest of these jars weighs more than six tons! :)
5. The highest point in Laos, the Phou Bia, is unfortunately not open to tourists because it is filled with unexploded ammunition.
