Getting around Vientiane

Getting around Vientiane Vientiane is pretty easy thanks to the city’s rather breezy traffic. The locals are known to be helpful, even though most of them don’t speak much English. Mini buses can take you out of the city to places such as Buddha Park and Friendship Bridge. If you’re staying within the city, you can easily explore on foot or bicycle. 

Taxis are readily available with fares negotiable – you can even hire them for the day (rates typically start from $30). Like Thailand, a popular way of getting around is by tuk-tuk (motorised rickshaws). However, it can be rather expensive as tourists are often overcharged.
