Laos is a landlocked country in Southeast Asia. Many of its islands are in very close proximity to each other, but there are pristine streams of water flowing around them. There are beautiful waterfalls in Laos known as the Khone Phapheng Falls whose water comes from the Mekong River. A kayak tour along the rapids is the perfect way to enjoy this place. If you’re looking for adventures along the shore, Laos is still an excellent place to be. Also, Laos has a lot of French influences. Its capital is characterized by wide roads, colonial architectural design, baguettes, wine, and good coffee.
Lao women are a bit more conservative. They are not into public displays of affection. While friends can openly do this in public, it is common in the Lao tradition to keep these intimate things private between the couple. The Lao women don’t want to be frowned upon when displaying their affection to their lovers in public.
A typical Lao family is very closely-knit. Expect your Lao date to consider their parents’ (and even extended families’) opinions first before making decisions – including getting into serious relationships and eventually settling down. Despite this conservatism, Lao people are open about homosexuality. There is a considerable number of ladyboys which may be hard to distinguish from the women.
Just like in the other parts of Asia, gender roles are very prevalent. Women are expected to be caretakers and homemakers as the men take care of the hard stuff – like working and providing for the family. The most critical part is Lao women value family so much.
If you’re planning to have a Lao woman as a partner, you’re up for good and satisfying family life.
