Laos’ charming capital nestles sleepily on the banks of the River Mekong. The premier city since 1563, as well as the administrative capital for the French, it’s only recently, as Laos has become a more popular destination, that Vientiane has shaken off its retiring, backwater image. The slow pace and relaxed vibes remain though, mingling with the French air that survives with the remnants of the colony and the old Buddhist temples, making it a truly delightful place to explore.
