Xieng Khouang Overview
Xieng Khuang lies in north-eastern Laos along the border with Vietnam. It also sports a very forgiving climate, never getting too hot or too cold, making it a great destination at any time of year.
The region was devastated during the Indochina wars in neighboring Vietnam, as it came under siege by American bombers trying to clear it of North Vietnamese forces. As a result, the towns are highly functional, as they all had to be rebuilt in the following years nearly from the ground up. Because of this, the main reason to visit the area is not its towns, but rather its magnificent natural beauty and authentic atmosphere.
