Laos - Getting to know Luang Namtha
The provinces of Luang Namtha is one of the centres for Laos' eco-tourism industry. The towns of Muang Sing and Luang Namtha are perhaps the best known, both popular for trekking and mountain biking. They are very popular places to visit and overall, deservedly so. If some of the work in these charming provincial towns could be replicated across the country, Laos would be setting itself some very firm foundations in the sustainable tourism department.
