Vientiane is the capital of Laos but there’s still not a feeling of a capital here. There are no big traffic jams altough the number of cars is increasing exponentially and the skyscrapers are slowly but steady starting to rise into the sky.
Despite French flair – even with its own Arc de Triumph – and its location at the Mekong Vientiane couldn’t convince me. Maybe I was there at the wrong time, unlucky to experience the TucTuc cartel or my stay was too short to discover the beautiful places. I for myself found the atmosphere unfriendly and everything else aligned to take out the western tourists. Here you can at least see a couple of pictures and then you can discover it by yourself.
You have already been there? So did you like Vientiane?
