Lao, the legacy of Lan Xang (a land of thousand elephant) Kingdom.
Two place i visit during the trip : the former royal capital of Lan Xang Kingdom Luang Prabang (previously known as Xiang Dong Xiang Thong, that remain as the spiritual center of the country) and the capital city of Vientiane (locally spelled as Viang Chan) to get a short glance of the country.
Lao, a landlocked country, its dependency on Mekong river is unquestionable.
Lao, The most bombed country in the world.
Lao, a place when time is stopped.
If only one word to describe Lao, it would be "relax".
As the french summed it up : "The Vietnamese plant rice, The Cambodian watch it grow, and The Laotian listen to it grow".
