Go Laos!

If you’re looking for a fine collection of travel websites, check out the nominees for the 2009 Ecotourism Spotlight Award, sponsored by Planeta.com.

>Ecotourism Laos, the official website of the Lao National Tourism Administration, gets my vote because it’s packed with information about the National Protected Areas of Laos.

I’ve been fortunate enough to explore some of the Lao Protected Areas, and they encompass some of the most epic landscapes and fascinating cultures on the planet.

The other nominees include Failte Ireland, the official tourism website for Quito, Ecuador and the Responsible Tourism Guide to the Mekong.
