Overview

Luang Prabang embodies the enormous potential of Laos. Endowed with a breathtaking natural landscape and fertile soil, Luang Prabang is holding onto its agricultural roots while being the heart of the Lao tourism industry. The local government has taken important steps to manage the growth in a way that benefits the poor and contributes to the conservation of the environment. However, limited resources and high levels of poverty mean that significant challenges remain.

Nearly 20 percent of the population lives in poverty. Problems in education, health and environmental protection limit the opportunities of many people. The growth of tourism is adding pressure on the already fragile infrastructure, and most of the local population does not benefit from tourism because their skills are largely geared towards agriculture. In Laos, numerous volunteering opportunities are open to you, including construction and teaching English.
