Vientiane Travel Guide

It can be loud and busy in most capital cities. But Vientiane is different. The national capital of Laos has a laidback vibe, attracting tourists who seek a peaceful holiday.

Like any national capital, Vientiane is a good first stop on a tour of Laos. It is teeming with attractions and activities that will introduce you to the local way of life in most aspects. Its primary attractions include the Buddha Park, That Luang, Patuxai Victory Monument, Wat Si Saket, Ho Phra Keo, and the Presidential Palace. After a round of a historical excursion, head to the Mekong River, where countless shops, street food stalls, and whatnots liven up the day.

There are two ways to get to Vientiane from overseas. One is by flying to Wattay International Airport, which hosts many Asian cities, including Kuala Lumpur, Busan, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, and Guangzhou. The other is crossing the border from Thailand, and traveling by train or bus.

Pro tip: Remember to set your minimum/maximum price, travel dates, and sort by review ratings. Book sooner rather than later if you already have your dates set. Cheaper-priced rooms and hotels with high reviews tend to get fully booked faster, especially during busy days like weekends, holidays & peak tourist seasons.
