Laos is a lesser-known Southeast Asian country, with much more to offer than meets the eye. Bordered by Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, and China, it is an ideal destination for those looking for a blend of history, culture, and adventure. With this, Laos is sometimes commonly referred to as “Laos PDR” or “Laos – Please Don’t Rush.” A nation known for its relaxed demeanor, as well as friendly and easy-going people, it comes as no surprise that more foreigners are starting to see its appeal. English is on the rise in Laos, and more teachers are needed in underfunded and neglected classrooms. So, if you are an ESL teacher looking for warm weather, hiking and trekking in beautiful mountains, or “chill vibes,” Laos is the perfect destination!
