Vientiane

 

Vientiane is one of the sleepiest capital cities in the world, with wide boulevards and little traffic. The capital of Laos is very accessible by air or overland from Bangkok and is the springboard for travel into the north or south of Laos.

Vientiane has a few attractions including the stunning gilded That Luang Stupa and Laos’ own version of the Arc de Triumph. Sunsets by the Mekong are always spectacular and most visitors find themselves by the Mekong for sun-down.
