The New York Times has compiled a list of places that are a “must see” for 2008. Has your favorite secret vacation spot made the list?
Vietnam and Cambodia
are so 2007. Now, Laos is shaping up to be Indochina’s next hot spot.
Ancient sites like the Wat Phou temple complex and the capital city of Vientiane are drawing culture seekers. Luxury teak houseboats are cruising down the Mekong. And global nomads are heading to Luang Prabang to sample the Laotian tasting menu at 3 Nagas (www.3nagas.com) or hang out by the infinity pool at the seriously upscale Résidence Phou Vao (www.residencephouvao.com).
