For the first time in its rich 50 year history, this colourful and fast-growing event will be held in Laos. The inaugural games took place in Bangkok in 1959 and constituted of 12 sports and 6 countries, today there are over 25 sporting categories and 11 participating countries. The Southeast Asia Games includes a wide variety of sports, ranging from Athletics and Tennis to Muay boxing and Petanque.

This is a great event to witness the unity and sportsmanship of Southeast Asia whilst experiencing one of its most fascinating countries, Laos. Why not combine this sporting spectacle with our Laos Adventure for a great holiday.
