A postcard from Laos

Laos is a landlocked nation in Southeast Asia located in the center of Indochina, sharing borders with China, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

Vang Vieng is a tourism-oriented town; Laos’ backpackers capital. The town is surrounded by a picturesque Karst hill landscape. Karst is a geologic term for a landscape shaped by the dissolution of a layer or layers of soluble bedrock. Limestone and gypsum are typical materials that makeup these kinds of formations. They dissolve easily in water.
