Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, regardless of its popularity, can only ever give you a glimpse into the wider personality of a region. So schedule in some time to visit Laos' other cities, attractions and landscapes.
If you're in the hunt for things to do that won't wreak havoc on the budget, take a tour of Laos' many outdoor popular open-air markets. Laos is blessed with an interesting spiritual history; learn more at the area's most sacred monasteries.
When you hear the call of the wild, do as the locals do and spend the day rock climbing and mountain biking. Tapping into local knowledge can be an extremely rewarding way for visitors to discover a new region. So consider singing up for one of the informative wildlife spotting tours, cycling tours and guided nature walks.
Local cuisines are a great way to learn the area in which you are traveling. So take the time to visit some of Laos' eating establishments. Cellophane noodles (made from mung bean starch) and asian basil are some of the commonly used ingredients. Sample a couple of the local specialties, including khao jee (baguettes) and laab moo (minced pork salad). Those who who are not quite satisfied, can order fresh fruit, a great way to complete your Laos culinary adventure. If you are after refreshment, fruit juice (watermelon, pineapple, sugar apple) is a good choice.
Upon conclusion of your visit to Laos, just remember that you can come again. As they say: Once a visitor, a friend from now on.
