Often ignored but rarely forgotten, Laos is one of our favorite off-the-beaten-path travel destinations in Southeast Asia. Longboats down the Mekong often stop at the ancient, and UNESCO, city of Luang Prabang. It rarely disappoints. Carved Laotian houses mingle with gold-shimmering stupas here as the chants of amber-robed monks emanate from the meditation halls. Grab a French baguette and sip a coffee to watch the sunrise over the Nam Khan River. Or, escape to the rainforests to encounter the paradisiacal Kuang Si Waterfalls.
