"Life for expats and digital nomads in Laos is generally quite relaxed and laid-back. The country is known for its friendly locals and stunning natural beauty, making it an ideal destination for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Expats and digital nomads can find a variety of accommodation options, ranging from budget guesthouses to luxury resorts. The cost of living is relatively low, making it an attractive option for those looking to stretch their budget. The country also offers a wide range of activities, from exploring ancient temples to trekking through the jungle. With its stunning scenery, friendly locals, and low cost of living, Laos is an ideal destination for expats and digital nomads," remarked another expat who made the move to Laos.
"For Lao people, all of the above! For many foreigners here it's mostly spending time getting to know Lao, visiting its more popular places, socialising etc. It all depends on what you want to do and spend most of your time on. For my family it's sport, socialising and seeing what Lao has to offer," explained one expat living in Vientiane, Laos.
