Laos has kept some traditions that have been lost in other parts of the region. There are stilt homes and paddy fields that look like they belong in a movie. If you want to see the city of Luang Prabang in slow motion, you can go with hundreds of robed monks every morning. You can see a place that hasn't been overrun by tourists in this way.
