In 1353, a prince founded the Kingdom of Lan Xang – ‘The Kingdom of a Million Elephants.’ The wild landscape of Laos still echoes the romance of the country’s original name. National parks comprise 13% of the country, and Laos’ unofficial reputation is that of being the most laid back country in Southeast Asia.
