Bokeo Province < < Back

Location: A northwestern province famous for its location at the infamous Golden Triangle: the three-bordered intersection of Laos, Myanmar and Thailand.

Natural Protected Areas: Nam Kan Provincial Protected Forest.

Main Ethnic Groups: Lanten, Hmong, Lahu, Yao, Akha, and Tai Lue.

Ecotourism Attractions: Bokeo has mountains and ethnic minority villages in the
east and the Mekong River and lowland Lao populations to the west.

Bokeo has one of the last remaining populations of black-cheeked gibbons in Laos, and an innovative canopy forest camp called the Gibbon Experience has been developed to provide travelers with the opportunity to see and hear the gibbons.

From Houeixai you can make day trips to ethnic Lantaen villages where the production of traditional saa paper and other crafts can be seen.
