In a country with vast undisturbed ecosystems, Laos continues to promote its 20 National Protected Areas, which include Phiu Khao Khouay close to Vientiane and the Nam Nern Night safari in Et-Phou Louey National Park. There is also an objective to have the Plain of Jars listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
