Welcome to Laos, the Lao People's Democratic Republic. Discover this landlocked country with its thickly forested landscape and rugged mountains. Learn of France and America's part in the long civil war which ended in 1975. Trace Laos' natural borders, the Mekong River to the west and the Annamite mountains to the east. Experience the extremes of Southeast Asia's tropical and monsoonal climate.

It's the simple pleasures that make a visit to this enigmatic country a delight, and what Laos lacks in in-your-face attractions is made up for with lush surrounds, friendly folk and gastronomic treats. Each book in the ongoing "Countries of the World" series depicts a major nation and its unique position in the world.
