Typical Lao outdoor life

There is no concept of ‘indoor/outdoor’ in the Lao lifestyle. During the daytime, people sit in the shade or under an umbrella trying to sell their bananas for some kips (Laos currency). But when the sun starts to fall, the people come to life. In the evening during the dry season, teenagers will gather at the banks of the Mekong River in Vientiane. Girls will draw little hearts in the sand and bare-chested boys will try to impress them by doing gymnastic flips or jumps. Everywhere there will be people playing badminton and families sitting with their babies in the grass. It’s a lovely way for travelers to experience typical Lao life.

Visitors, however, do not have to wait idly for this active time of day. Laos offers a range of daytime outdoor activities that will give your clients a new appreciation for relaxation at the end of the day as much as the Lao people.

Zip line in Laos

One activity that has become really popular in the last few years is zip lining. Outdoor outfitters in The Bolaven Plateau of southern Laos and the Bokeo Nature Reserve’s gibbon experience are two places to go if your travelers are looking for this thrill-seeking experience. Zip lining, often described as “flying through the jungle canopy” is a great way to explore Laos’ natural areas and wildlife in an active and exciting way. At Bokeo Nature Reserve in northern Laos, the zip lines are connected to their tree house overnight accommodations. The high wire zip line is the only way in or out of these tree houses. Both of these locations operate in an environmentally friendly and safe manner and consider the protection of wildlife as their foremost concern.
