Enjoy moments of quiet contemplation at Laos' shrines. When the weather's great, why not take the opportunity to explore Laos' open-air markets?.
If you feel like it is time to relax try out cycling or bird watching. Head outdoors and get active in Laos. Try your hand at rock climbing or give caving a spin.
To truly get a taste for the local customs, make sure you visit the region's bars, cafés and restaurants. These are good spots to rub shoulders with friendly locals as well as sample food that is commonly eaten here. People in this area commonly include cellophane noodles (made from mung bean starch) and asian basil in the food they cook. Local favorite meals include khao jee (baguettes) and laab moo (minced pork salad), but of course there are many other interesting options for foodies to try. Fresh fruit, is the perfect way to wrap up your meal. Visitors who don't consume alcoholic drinks will want to sample fruit juice (watermelon, pineapple, sugar apple), a regional favorite.
Upon conclusion of your time in Laos, remember that you can always return. As the locals like to say: A guest once, forever a friend.
