Top 10 Vientiane

The Best of Vientiane in Laos

Vientiane feels more like a charming backpacker town than the capital city of a country. Many visitors en route through South East Asia initially plan for just a short stop-over, yet find themselves extending their stay due to the plentiful supply of fascinating temples, bustling markets, and exquisite restaurants. The famously laidback atmosphere, along with the city’s quaint leafy streets and classic colonial French architecture also play their part in persuading the slow but steady flow of visitors to adjust their travel itineraries.

We have walked, cycled and tuk-tuked our way around town to find the best attractions, restaurants, night spots and shops. Below are our Top 10 lists of everything in Vientiane!
