Laos is a country full of mystery which is just waiting to be explored by corporate incentive groups considering a new destination for team building events. This landlocked country part of the Indochina region shares its borders with the neighbouring countries of Cambodia, China, Myanmar Vietnam and Thailand to the south making it very accessible from these locations.
Laos is approximately the size of Great Britain, it is sparsely populated, and home to around 6.5 million inhabitants. This largely rural country has remained relatively untouched by mass market tourism, establishing a reputation as a new MICE destination particularly suited to smaller corporate groups.

What is unique about Laos?
Luang Prabang was the first capital of the Lao kingdom, called Lan Xang meaning the land of the elephants, it was home to the Laotian Royal family from 1353 until the revolution in 1975 which brought the end of the monarchy.
During its golden era the city received its present day name Pra Bang from a Buddha image brought to the city by King Visoun which is housed in the Royal Palace Museum.
The city survived being attacked by the Chinese Haw in 1887 and allowed the French colonialists to protect the city leading to wonderful colonial buildings being built.
After the revolution took place there was a lot of poverty before the country opened up to tourism in 1989 when the wonderful Laotian style wood houses and colonial mansions were brought back to their original glory and now offer perfect locations for corporate accommodation ,dining and spots for our amazing city chase event.
