Vientiane is located on the north bank of the Mekong River on the border of Laos and Thailand. It is a small city and much more laid back and less hectic than many other cities in South East Asia. This fact lends itself to the off the beaten track feel that Laos has. Nicknamed the ‘City of Charm’, Vientiane prides itself on being friendly and welcoming. The Lao National Museum is a great place to start your visit. Featuring French Colonial architecture, the building became a museum in 2000, after a long history of use by the government and monarchy. There are many temples and stupas to visit, with fascinating histories and architecture. Pha That Luang dates back to the 16th century and Wat Si Saket has a museum and hundreds of Buddha images placed in the wall. There are plenty of shopping opportunities at shopping centres and handicraft stalls selling silk and other traditional textiles. For a self reflective moment or two, try the Lao Dhamma Center for some meditation or relax at Adina or Champa Spa. Watch or try out the local martial art Muay Lao at Kuanjai Sikhot Boxing Gym. A wide range of food is available throughout the city from local Lao dishes to many global cuisines, including Tex Mex, French, Italian and Chinese.
