Laos Eco Lodges

Asia – Ecotourism in Laos

Laos seems to be serious about ecotourism and conservation. They have a system of 20 protected areas called the National Protected Areas. It covers fourteen percent of the country.

The Lao People’s Democratic Republic’s Vision for Ecotourism is “Laos will become a world renowned destination specializing in forms of sustainable tourism that, through partnership and cooperation, benefits natural and cultural heritage conservation and local socio-economic development, and spreads knowledge of Laos’ unique cultural heritage around the world.” The Lao government as well as international stakeholders are helping to make this vision a reality. The Lao National Tourism Administration has a website where they are promoting ecotourism.

A large biodiversity and cultural heritage make Laos a unique place to visit. There is also a low population density, which insures that you will experience more nature. Below is a picture from one of our lodges, Kingfisher Ecolodge
