History and Symbols of Laos

The first laotian kingdom “Lan Xang” (the kingdom of the million elephants), whose endemic species embodies Strength and Longevity, dates from the 16th century and had Luang Prabang as its capital city. The country is landlocked between Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and China.

Its topography mostly consists of tropical mountains in the north, and plateaus in the south. Mythical river of more than 4350kms, the Mekong, taking its source in Tibet, crosses the full length of the country to flow into the Sea of China.

The Laos population presents an exceptional diversity with more than 130 distinct groups identified. The majority of which is buddhist with more than 5000 temples built in the country. For the laotian population, warmly welcoming visitors and ensuring they enjoy a memorable stay in the country is a duty.
