Fun facts about Lao

Laos is known as the 'land of a million elephants', a translation of the name for an ancient Lao empire, Lan Xan.

In Lao, there are no spaces between words: a space indicates the end of a phrase.

There have been attempts recently to officially reduce the number of consonants in Lao, as many of them indicate the same sound.§
