Vientiane is probably the most laid-back capital city in Southeast Asia.

This is a good thing if you want to relax while enjoying the convenience of the big city.

If you have a day to spend in Vientiane, check out the Patuxai Victory Monument and Pha That Luang (National Symbol of Laos).

Or, simply watch the sunset along the peaceful Mekong riverside.
