With a young new breed, about half of the population being under 20 years old, that in recent years has set a new vibe in Vientiane buzzing where new cafes and galleries with challenging new concepts are mushrooming.

Made in Laos,
Besides an excellent ‘Beer Lao’ which many visitors get familiar with during their visit, nothing much else tangible is made in Laos.
Though the real – made in Laos – is an abundance of unspoiled nature, people charm, ethnic indigenous diversity and real eco tourism without much of the large scale investment-eco-tourism which is prevalent from Laos’ neighbours.
