Things to Do in Vientiane

Vientiane is known for its laidback atmosphere – life moves slowly here, attracting those looking to enjoy a quiet holiday in Laos. Exploring centuries-old Buddhist temples is one of the most popular things to do in the Lao capital, which you can do on foot, bicycle or tuk-tuk. 

Quirky markets sit next the Mekong River, while colonial buildings are often museums displaying thousands of artefacts. Grab your camera, hit the streets, and you’re bound to find a host of interesting sights in Vientiane.
