(Last Updated On: April 19, 2022) 2nd December, National Day of Laos and Birthday of Nabeel Tirmazi. Lao PDR also called ‘Land of Million Elephants’ is a hidden gem in Asia. The country was renamed the country as the Lao People’s Democratic Republic on 2nd December 1975 (before I was born ) . The country neighbours with Thailand, Vietnam and China. and has well-preserved their cultural heritage. For me, it was a great visual treat to visit their culture sites in Vientiane but unfortunately missed the opportunity to visit Luang Prabang, may be next time. This picture was clicked at That Luang, the national monument of the country. This gold-covered large Buddhist stupa in the centre of the city of Vientiane, Laos is said to be established in 3 century A,D. Happy National day to my Laotian friends.
