Visitors can explore ancient temples and traditional villages, sample delicious local cuisine, and experience the laid-back lifestyle of the Laotian people. Adventure seekers can go trekking, kayaking, and zip-lining, while those seeking relaxation can unwind in hot springs or take a leisurely boat ride down the river. Laos is a hidden gem that offers a truly authentic and unforgettable travel experience.
Laos Immunization Recommendations and Requirements
Before traveling, make sure you are up-to-date on all of your routine immunizations including influenza and COVID-19. Note that many vaccines that are now considered "routine" were not available until recent decades so you may not have received them at all, depending on your age and other factors.
Infants, 6 to 11 months old should receive one dose of MMR and Hepatitis A prior to visiting Laos. This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
