Laos has a lot to offer in terms of history and culture. Scattered throughout the country are ancient Khmer ruins dating back to as early as the fifth century.

Check out the Phu Ruins, Champassak, Laos










The main Sanctuary of the ancient Khmer temple of Wat Phu


This temple is believed to represent a small scale version of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Temples like these are meant to represent the universe, and are very sacred to ancient Laos. Originally, this temple was intended to be a Hindu shrine, but was later transformed into a Buddhist shrine.
