20 Instagrams That Will Inspire You to Visit LAOS

, , ,

During my extended travels in South-East Asia, I absolutely fell in love with Laos.

It took me a really long time to get there, and I’m actually really upset with myself that I hadn’t visited earlier.

I honestly have no idea why I waited for so long, but now that I now — I’m always telling people about how amazing Laos is.

If you’re backpacking through South-East Asia, definitely check out my Laos Backpacking guide.  This is a great resource for your future travels.

I’m almost obsessed with Instagram — so check out these 20 posts that will definitely inspire you to visit Laos!

    Hi Jones,

    Phenomenal images! I’m floored by all of them. We rushed way too quickly thru Laos – rare for us as we slow travel it – and missed so much in this small but beautiful country. I do recall the towering mountains surrounding us as we bused from the capital to Luang Prubang and VV; it was epic. Some of the prettiest scenery ever, that I’ve seen. I also remember seeing an internet cafe in a remote area. And yes, people were on Facebook, chatting away.

      Thanks Ryan! Yeah, Laos is unreal! I felt kinda rushed through the country only having around 2.5 weeks there. Next time I’m backpacking around South-East Asia I’m definitely going to be spending a lot more time in Laos. I think it’s one of the most underrated travel destinations in the world. : )

      Ah I never got to do any climbing, but I’m definitely keen to go back for another trip in Laos! I had the absolute best time there! 🙂 Thanks for the comment. Cheers!
