Discover Muang La in Northern Laos
Muang La is a charming destination in the Northern Laos, in a region where the ethnic minorities still live separately from modern life and where mass tourism has not arrived.
Coming to Muang La is not easy because the roads are not well maintained. Dealing with potholes and trucks carrying trade between Laos and China can make the road trip a tiring experience. But once you get to Muang La, you will be able to quickly forget when you relax in a place where life flows slowly.
