Vientiane

3.2
The riverside capital of Laos, Vientiane still has a relatively small urban area and a laid-back, relaxed feel to it. The mix of colonial French and traditional architecture adds an air of sophistication to the city, and newer developments, particularly along the waterfront, add a few modern touches to the scene. The surrounding rice paddies, visible at the end of many of the city's streets, provide a sprawling area of countryside to explore by bike or foot, while the river offers a number of outdoor activities and day excursions. Visits to Vientiane should be conducted at the relaxed pace of the locals so as not to miss any of the sights. Vientiane is in Vientiane Prefecture. Before you visit Laos, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
