During the first two weeks of October each year, you can book flights to Laos to experience one of the most beautiful and spiritual festivals in the country. The Lai Hua Fai (Fire Boat Festival) is a festival of lights marking two important events in the Buddhist community. Firstly the end of the Buddhist lent period and the beginning of monsoon season when the monks return to the temples and allow the monsoon rains to wash away the old and bring in the new. The whole area of Laos is beautifully made up during the festival, but the best place to attend the festivities is at Wat Xieng Thong temple. Since the 16th century, paper boat makers have been taking their candlelit boats to be judged before letting them float out on the Mekong River, where they will set sail in a blaze. Local people encourage tourists to join in and make their own boat filled with spices, foods, candles and incense, and 'letting go of the old together. Book early to secure great December Laos flight deals, and you can attend the Luang Prabang Film Festival. This art-house film festival happens in the first week of December each year. All the movie screenings are free and showcase the best Southeastern Asian filmmakers. Shuttle buses in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Luang Prabang transport audiences to the Sofitel hotel for daytime screenings. Then in the warm evening's movies are projected onto an outdoor cinema screen.
When you think Laos foods, think simple, veggie-heavy, but complex flavours. Their cuisine is much lighter than Thai food as they don't use as many oils and milk to prepare their dishes. Most meals will be packed full of fresh bamboo shoots, chilli, galangal, and huge amounts of fresh herbs, like mint, coriander, lime leaf, and dill. One such dish that fits the flavour profile perfectly is the national dish of Laos, Larb or Laab, which translates to minced meats. Usually, minced duck or chicken, drenched in fish sauce and lime juice, the dish is a take on a minced salad, with lots of mixed in herbs and topped with a powder made from dried rice. The dish is usually served with a portion of steamed, sticky coconut rice on the side. A must try scenic dinner spot that boasts Larb is Le Vetiver & Nava Mekong, along the Mekong River banks.
The Southeast Asian country of Laos is a hidden gem among its neighbours China, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.

At the bottom of the falls is a series of warm rock pools where you are welcome to have a splash around in and get the best view of the falls close up. When you arrive in Laos, you will notice the smell of roasting coffee everywhere you go. The country is famous for its Sinouk Coffee production.

We recommend that you contact the Laos embassy or consulate about a month before you plan your trip to Laos to double-check what is required to enter the country at the time of your trip. The entry rules and regulations change frequently, so it can never hurt to make sure. Once you are granted access to Laos, you will receive an entry stamp in your passport, so you need at least one available blank page in your valid passport. Some flight operators will recommend you have two empty pages in your passport. You will be guaranteed an entry visa on arrival, and that visa can be extended up to 90 days.
