Comparing it to other Asian big hubs we know, the capital of Laos, Vientiane resembles a small village rather than a busy crowded city. This just shows how charming and relatively undeveloped Laos is.
In Vientiane, most of the sightseeing can be done by foot, bike or by hiring a Songthaew. Vientiene gives more of a village vibe rather than busy city feeling gives and is famously known for it’s ‘please slow down joke’.
The city offers a great choice of accommodation, restaurants and pavement cafes adding a French air with their style of architecture which contrast pleasingly with the old Buddhist temple dotted around.
