Leaving Thailand to the other side of the Mekong, Vientiane is the capital city of Laos and also a bordergate, from where you’ll leave behind the hectic, modernized 21st-century world to deep yourself into a laid-back atmosphere and slow pace of life that you and I may wish to be after a day of tense. Being the most ‘’hustle” city of Laos, Vientiane may not charm you with graceful colonial-styled houses and sparsely roads like Luang Prabang and Vang Vieng, but never let you get stuck between traffic jams and heats like at other developing countries. The city presents a valuable, long-standing Laos with ancient, golden relics, solemn Buddhist pagodas, and amazes you by crowded but quiet, orderly streets and boulevards. You can easily spend several days either for business or holiday, visiting the city's remarkable sites, contemplating the tranquility before hanging out to observe the daily life at its bridges, markets, or take your children to an unusual Buddha's park. From Vientiane, you also make plans to go up north by land, air or riverway to Vang Vieng and Luang Prabang, or to go southward for a longer trip to the South of Laos, where more sunshine, natural wonders, highland's weather, coffee, tea and challenges for adventure trips are waiting.



Food & Drink

Like many other cities and provinces of Laos, Vientiane offers pleasant places for tourists to mingle in the local culture and life through several cuisine journeys. Experiencing street foods is considered as the best way to get to know Laotian traditional and popular dishes at a reasonable price.
