About Lao morning news.

Lao morning news roundup is the most comprehensive hand-curated selection of Lao English language news headlines published. Each weekday we scour hundreds of local and international news sites and websites to find the freshest Lao English language news today.

We filter our the dull, the boring, the repetitive, and the click-bait and package all of the Lao daily news that you need to know to start your day into an easy to read, time saving format of Lao news headlines and first paragraphs before 8.00am Vientiane time.

We clearly identify the source of all the Lao news headlines, whether it is behind a paywall, a media release, or whether the news site uses annoying pop-up advertising or auto-play video, in case those things annoy you too. If a website uses particularly invasive pop-up adverts, we’ll tell you.

This enables you to make an informed choice of whether you want to learn more by clicking directly through to the original Lao news article, or keep on reading the remaining Lao daily news headlines.
