Laos, being the long forgotten backwater, perhaps due to their location is landlocked by countries in Southeast Asia (encircled by Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand and China). Laos PDR, which was meant to be Laos Peoples Democratic Republic, is humorously interpreted into Laos Please Don’t Rush. With this joke in mind, it’s not hard to understand the way of living of local residences here, and the way it can be left untouched by modern pace, retaining the exotic charm of a country.
