Laos Districts.png

Laos is divided into 16 provinces (Lao ແຂວງ, khoueng) and 1 prefecture (kampheng nakhon) plus capital city municipality (ນະຄອນຫລວງ, nakhon luang). Furthermore, 1 so-called special administrative zone (ເຂດພິເສດ, khet phiset) existed between 1994 and 2006, when it was re-merged into its surrounding provinces (i.e. Vientiane and Xiangkhoang). Each province is subdivided into districts (muang) and then subdivided into villages (baan).
