Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in Laos accepting of differences?

Answer this Question

When we asked people about diversity in Laos and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"Laos is a culturally diverse country, with over 49 ethnic groups living in the country. People in Laos are generally accepting of differences, and the country has a long history of peaceful coexistence between different ethnic and religious groups. The government of Laos has also taken steps to promote cultural diversity and acceptance of differences, such as the establishment of the National Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Ethnic and Religious Minorities," said a member in Laos.

"I think people here are quite accepting of differences. Some are open to it. A lot of the older people though not so much. As long as you come here with an open mind and are respectful of Lao customs and beliefs etc then you shouldn't have a problem," remarked another expat who made the move to Vientiane, Laos.
