Laos plans to serve 1.4 million tourists in 2023

With this goal, at least five new tourist areas will be designated, and three sites must comply with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) clean tourism city standards, said Deputy Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, Fancy Kwamua.

KPL news agency said that in 2022, Laos recorded receiving more than 1.6 million domestic and foreign tourists.

Thailand, China and South Korea were the main foreign source markets, while just over 14,000 travelers arrived from Europe and the United States exceeded 9,000.

Vientiane is now poised to welcome more Chinese tourists, after the Beijing government included it among the 20 countries authorized for group tours.

As you know here, Lao Airlines, which currently operates three flights per week from the country’s capital to Kunming in southeast China’s Yunnan Province, plans to establish links with the cities of Guangzhou, Shanghai, Chengdu, Changzhou and Hangzhou.

Laos has been nominated by National Geographic magazine and the multinational news channel CNN as one of the 23 best destinations to visit in 2023.
