Our Community of Expats in Laos Welcomes You!

Yin dee torn lap! Welcome to InterNations Laos, where you'll find all you need to help you with your relocation. Moving overseas is adventurous and exciting, but it can also be challenging. It's natural to have questions, such as “to which school should I send my children in Laos?”, “how does the healthcare system work?ʺ, or “which district should I move to in Vientiane?ʺ. InterNations links you to other expats in Laos, who, with appropriate knowledge and experience, can answer any questions that may be bothering you about moving to Laos. Laos has a fascinating and varied culture, and we want to support you in experiencing its many facets; from visiting its beautiful and famous monasteries to discovering the night market at Luang Prabang.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to check out our vibrant InterNations Communities in countries like New Zealand or Chile.

    Embark on Your Expat Life in Laos

    Laos has much to offer to expatriates and tourists alike, from the breathtaking paddy fields of rural Vang Vieng, to the colorful, culture rich hubbub of Luang Prabang. Any of the country’s cultural and environmental features could explain the growing expat community in Laos. However, many are also attracted by its economic opportunities, with urban development as well as tourism proving to be growing industries in Laos.

    InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Senegal or Taiwan, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

    Start Building Your Expat Network in Laos Today!

    InterNations is a unique community of members, who you will be able to interact with in a safe and secure environment, so feel free to ask questions about any topic relevant to living in Laos. Our members share information, tips, and experience with each other, thus offering support with any area of concern, including practical ones, such as how to find a doctor, as well as broader questions on the life and culture in Laos. Continuing your hobbies and carving out a social life is an important aspect in moving to a foreign country, too, which is why InterNations encourages and enables members to organize interest-based groups and activities . Our Laos Community for example currently hosts a Vientiane Professional Networking Group, and if you’re hoping to develop hobbies and activities, such as hiking, climbing or cycling, you're able to start your own group.
