One of Thailand's neighboring countries is Laos and this is an obvious destination if one is to get to Vietnam from Thailand. Laos is a relatively new destination for tourists, it has grown more popular among tourists in recent years, and rightly so. It is a very nice country with extremely friendly people. I did not spend much time in Laos because I will be doing a roadtrip through Vietnam and I will have to use a majority of my limited time on that. Though after a few days in Luang Prabang I realize I should have given Laos more time because there is plenty to discover here. The waterfalls just outside of Luang Prabang is probably among the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
