What is the culture of Laos?

The core of Lao culture revolves around life's simple joys: indulging in meals, sharing drinks, resting, and engaging in conversations with friends. Social interactions typically take priority over work obligations.

Theravada Buddhism makes up about 66% of the population of Laos, with the bulk of practitioners being Lao Loum. The remaining, who adhere to their distinct ethnic customs and rituals, are largely animist.
