Touring Vientiane [Laos PDR holiday]



Viantiane is the capital and largest city of Laos, situated on the Mekong river near the border with Thailand. Our hotel was situated by the riverside with fantastic view of Thailand (literally across the street -that if you walk and swim the Mekong river). Vientiane became the capital in 1563 due to fears of a Burmese invasion. During French rule, Vientiane was the administrative capital and, due to economic growth in recent times, it has now become the economic center of Laos.
