Vientiane

Mapper » Asia » Southeast Asia » Laos » Vientiane

 

Vientiane, the capital of Laos, is located on bend of the Mekong River. (Northeastern Thailand lies on the other side.)

It is among the smallest capital cities in Southeast Asia, and has a spread out and relaxed atmosphere.

There are some temples worth visiting, but the best way to experience Vientiane for many travelers is to simply wander down to the riverside, watch the sun set over the Mekong, and relax from more distant adventures.

Vientiane is the primary place to arrange travels through the rest of Laos.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
