Laos' History
Laos’ rich history dates back many centuries; the country’s first major kingdom (Lan Xang) came into being in the 14th century. During this time, Theravada Buddhism was introduced, and the capital city of Luang Prabang became an important cultural center for 200 years. History in Laos is also defined by French colonialism, which began in the 1880s and ended in 1953. The French remained less involved in Laos compared to other Southeast Asian countries but did build a number of historic colonial buildings that still stand today. In the 1950s and 60s, Laos adopted a constitutional monarchy. Tragically, Laos’ proximity to Vietnam meant that the country suffered some of the heaviest bombings ever experienced in the world. In 1975, Laos began a new chapter in its history when it emerged as a communist nation.

Embark on an AAT tour, and we’ll whisk you away to Laos’ best historic sites. Tour the Lao National History Museum in Vientiane. In this French colonial building, you can gain an introduction into Laos’ history and culture -- from prehistoric eras to the present day. Plenty of exhibits also reveal Laos’ long struggle for independence from Thai, French, and American influences. Vientiane’s French colonial architecture includes Patouxai -- a striking arch designed after the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. A historical tour of Laos isn’t complete without seeing UNESCO- recognized Luang Prabang. A visit to the Plain of Jars will transport you 2,000 years into the past; these scatters of stone vessels were used for ancient burial ceremonies.
