Capital of 🇱🇦Laos

Vientiane

Home to Buddhist temples and relaxed vibes.

Set on the banks of the Mekong River, Vientiane is the quiet and relaxed capital of Laos. With a population of just over 700,000, the city is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of Southeast Asia. While there’s not a lot to do in the city itself, it’s a great base for exploring the rest of Laos. The city’s architecture is a mix of French colonial and traditional Lao, and the Mekong River is a great place to relax and watch the world go by. There are also a few interesting temples in the city, including the impressive Wat Sisaket and the golden Wat Pha That Luang.
