Cambodia, Angkor is the World s largest religious area, there are more than 100 stone temples build by Khmer King since 9th - 13th Century. Angkor located in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia, 315 km. north-west of Phnom Penh. The majestic temples of Angkor belong to the classic period of Khmer art and civilization. Today, a millennium after built these temples, and the temples stand solitary and alone in the jungle.  

Laos, The original Lao capital was established in 1353 at Luang Prabang, the heart of the Kingdom of a Million Elephants. In 1560, The Capital was moved by King Setthathirat, who was concerned with the threat of a Burmese invasion.The new capital was built on a fertile plain and was named Vieng Chan, meaning Walled City of the Moon or perhaps Walled City of Sandalwood.  Both definitions can be explained by the fact that Vieng Chan was protected by ramparts which were probably constructed of wood.  Built along the banks of the Mekong, the fortified city's main sources of revenue were agriculture and taxes on river-borne commerce.  In the 17th century, the first European visitors appeared on the scene.  They were granted an audience with King Souligna Vongsa (who reigned from 1637 until 1694) and described Vieng Chan as a prosperous city.  When the French arrived at the end of the 19th century, they found the town in ruins and overgrown by jungle.   Vientiane which is the French transliteration of the Lao name Vieng Chan, was partially rebuilt during the colonial period, with French style buildings and housed. As they did in Phnom Penh, Hanoi and Saigon, the French also constructed wide tree-lined avenues.  Today, the remaining colonial buildings are fairly well preserved.

The most attractive sites are the historic places, antiques, temples, rivers, mountains, cascades, waterfalls and caves.The nature is beautiful and green.
