Get around[ edit ] Vientiane city centre Getting around Vientiane is generally easy, as the traffic is far less murderous than in larger Southeast Asian cities like Bangkok or Ho Chi Minh City. Street signage is, however, rather lacking though in the centre more and more signs are appearing. Where there are signs displaying street names these are bilingual Lao and French.
The Lao word "thanon" on these signs is translated by "rue", "avenue" or "boulevard", in many cases without any apparent logic. Therefore the Lao word "thanon" is used throughout this article. Your best bet when asking for directions is to ask for the wat temple closest to where you want to go, whether asking a pedestrian, a police officer or a tuktuk driver. When asking for directions or streets with "r" in them, be aware that Laotians often pronounce them as "l". The map on the right, which is Local sex finder in nong khai to scale, covers the centre only.
Maps covering a larger area are available at bookshops and some mini-marts, but are not as detailed and not always to scale. Many shop fronts feature addresses in Roman letters, and these are often the best way to determine the street one is walking. People navigate using landmarks, so get the nearest embassy, hotel or temple to where you want to go. Since a major road upgrading project has been going on in the town centre and out of it up to way past the airport in the west and the Friendship Bridge in the east, financed by the Japanese government and planned and overseen by Japanese engineers.
Largely gone are the hazards presented by missing drainage gully covers and sidewalks upturned by tree roots. Almost no trees have been cut - amazing! In the centre of Vientiane the through roads Thanons Setthathirat and Samsenthai and the side roads connecting them and down to the river now have sealed surfaces and sidewalks, and there is decent street lighting. A one-way traffic regime is in place, and parking regulations have also been introduced. Markings for pedestrian crossings have been painted on the new roads, but the local drivers regard them as decoration so don't rely on them! Vientiane's rainwater drainage system, which also takes care of "grey water" from baths, sinks, laundry, etc.
These slabs are sometimes damaged and very precariously balanced, or even missing altogether; people rapidly learn to take care before stepping on anything that looks like a slab! Waste from toilets is or should be collected in septic tanks at every house, but gullies can nevertheless smell abominably. In the centre things have improved markedly as a result of the road upgrading and the smell from the gullies is now no longer very noticeable. By taxi[ edit ] Vientiane has a small fleet of genuine taxis retired from Bangkok, usually found lurking at the Friendship Bridge, the airport or in front of large hotels.
Many private taxis have emerged of late - typically minivans with air conditioning - who claim to charge no more than tuktuks do. By tuk-tuk or jumbo[ edit ] A typical jumbo tuk-tuk in Vientiane Tuktuks in Vientiane do not work in the same way as Bangkok or Phnom Penh. Generally, tuktuks are considered public transport, and if you hop on one at That Luang, the driver will often consider it perfectly reasonable to pick other passengers up while on route, even if you have negotiated a price. So, if you hire a tuktuk by yourself, the quoted rate may well be astonishing; but if there's a group of you, then it may be 10, kip per person.
All the tuk-tuk drivers carry a fare card for popular destinations but these fares are ridiculously inflated. You can always bargain with the driver. If direct negotiations do not work, maybe you can try walking away to cause the fare to be lowered. Share big tuktuks running on set routes, e. Tuk-tuks lined in front of the Mekong bank restaurants tend to quote the most expensive rates; but walking a few blocks to find a better price is well worth it - the tuktuks just down the road north of the Pimphone Minimarket are way more reasonable, as are those on the junction between Settathilath and Nokeokoummane.
By bus[ edit ] Green Isuzu buses, light green Kyoto buses, and blue minibuses connect the center Talat Sao bus station to the suburban districts, yet another gift from the People of Japan. There's also a new shuttle bus route going to Wattay International Airport from the city center hotel area and Central Bus Station 15, kip. The airport bus stop is located at the International Arrivals exit turn left after exitingand there are several bus stops in the city center along Setthathilath, Samsenthai and Pangkham Roads. Fare changed on May 1, Route No. Most guest houses and hotels can arrange bike rental for around 10, kip per day, with the cheapest reported to be 8, kip at Douang Deuane Hotel although the bikes aren't the best.
Although the city's flat terrain makes for good biking, one-way streets can be difficult to identify. You can usually choose to leave your passport, your driver's licence, about 1, baht, or a comparable amount of kip or US dollars as a deposit. Despite the poor standard of local driving, cycling is fairly safe in the city because the traffic is quite slow. It's better to check the bike condition before taking a bike out - some bikes do have faults or are not the best. Better to have a test ride beforehand! On foot[ edit ] The city centre can be quite comfortably covered on foot, at least in the cool season. Pha That Luang, however, is 4 km away from the centre and thus a bit of a hike.
By car[ edit ] There are a lot of car rental companies, but if you are looking for a international standard and service, you can try Europcar Asia Vehicle rentallocated on Samsenthai Rd, just 5 minutes from Namphu fountain. See[ edit ][ add listing ] Vientiane is best viewed as a comfortable transit point for other places in Laos, or as a recuperative stop on the way out. It's a pleasant enough place, but generally, there is little reason to spend more than a couple of days here. Formerly the Lao Revolutionary Museum by name, the historical exhibits on the first floor are modest though very interesting in depicting some of the early history.
They include one of the original Jars from the Plain of Jars and various stone and bronze age implements. The second floor provides us with a great insight into the 18th Century Laotian Kingdom and the customs of the day. It would appear that the Loatians didn't treat their guests quite as well in those days, often keeping them from leaving the country for several months. The floor builds up to a fervently revolutionary pitch as it documents the heroic struggle of the Lao against the Siamese ThaiFrench and American imperialists.
Exhibits include items such as socks worn by Politburo members when they escaped from prison and Kaysone Phomvihane's chest expander. The final rooms, on post-revolutionary Laos, are mostly a photo gallery of pressing topics such as the comrades of the 7th Plenary Session of the Laos People's Congress inspecting fertilizer production processes. The final rooms provide an insight into some of the modern advancements, though these are fairly dowdy and uninspiring. A guestbook regularly features amusing arguments between young western visitors on the subject of communism. Most exhibits are labelled in English, though some French labelling remains, occasionally to the exclusion of English.
Besides the elaborate Buddhist embellishment, it differs from the original in having four gates instead of two and being just a bit higher to trump the French. Reasonably impressive from afar, a surprisingly frank English sign inside the monument labels it a "monster of concrete" when seen up close - and the concrete in question was donated by the US, although it was supposed to go towards a new airport instead: The monument itself aside, the palm tree-lined park around it complete with fountains is quite pleasant though lacking of shade during the day time.
You can climb up to the 7th story for a nice view of central Vientiane and three levels of souvenir shops with less than enthusiastic sales people sitting about. Features a musical fountain nearby that attracts visitors from around Laos and Asia, as well as a World Peace gong presented by Indonesia. Roving cameramen will be happy to charge you for photos near these attractions. The Cooperative Orthotic and Prosthetic Enterprise, or COPE, is a local not for profit organisation that provides orthotic, prosthetic, rehabilitation and advocacy services for survivors of UXO accidents and other people with disabilities in Laos.
During the Vietnam Warconflict spilled over into Laos in a secret war where more thanbombing missions dropped over two million tons of ordnance on the country.

Entrance fee 10, kip Feb With very contemplative ambiance; the oldest standing temple in Vientiane and among the most atmospheric. Built in by Chao Anou in the Bangkok style and hence left unsacked when much of Vientiane was razed in a Siamese raid in Within the cloister walls are hundreds of niches housing Buddha images large and small, made of wood, stone, silver and bronze.
In the centre of the courtyard is a five-tier-roofed sim ordination hall housing yet more Buddha niches and beautiful but fading murals of the Buddha's past lives. Thanon Setthathirat opposite Wat Si Saket. An elegant, and majestic structure, King Setthathirat's former royal temple, which housed the magical Emerald Buddha pha kaew after it was taken from Lanna Chiang Mai. The Siamese took it back in - the image is now housed in Bangkok 's Wat Phra Kaew - and came back in to raze the temple for good measure. The present structure is a reconstruction of dubious provenance. The temple no longer operates and the interior has been turned into a small jumbled museum housing Buddha images; look out for the beautiful tall, lithe, long-armed Buddha in the hands-down "calling for rain" pose.
Black Stupa That Dam. The mythical abode of a seven-headed dragon that protects Vientiane. It was renovated in but still has an attractive patina of age, and is slowly being overgrown again by lush grass vegetation. Thanon That Luang 2 km east from Patuxai. The national symbol and most important religious monument of the country, That Luang is a three-layered gilded stupa. The current version dates fromalthough it has been ransacked and renovated numerous times since then. Accessing the inner courtyard gives you a slightly closer view of the stupa, and lots of Buddha statues.
Vientiane's most important festival, Bun That Luang, is held here in November on the night of the full moon. There are two temples beside That Luang: Between Thanons Setthatirat and Samsenthai, about 1km east of the centre. Disney-esque and gaudy in set-up, one would not think that it's a religious compound.

Nearby[ edit ] Buddha Park Buddha Park Xieng Khuan is a bizarre outdoor collection of huge concrete sculptures of Buddhist and Hindu deities, and real and imaginary beasts. The reclining Buddha is especially impressive. Built in by mystic Luang Pu Bunleua Sulilat, who left the country khao the communist take-over, and in established a similar but more impressive park Sala Keoku or Sala Kaew Ku across the river in Nong KhaiThailand. Located 24 km from the city, it's about 6 km to the east of the Friendship Bridge - hence it's well worth visiting on the way into or out of Laos if you're crossing the Friendship Bridge, as this will save a 48 km round trip if you visit from and return to Vientiane.
There is technically a 3,LAK camera fee, but officials weren't interested in collecting this fee as of Feb You can hire a tuk-tuk for the entire Vientiane - Buddha Park - Friendship bridge or vice versa trip, but taking the public bus 14 is much cheaper. The timetable is painted on the wall near the ticket office. Look for green and white buses near a big electrical tower across the street from the main station.

Many of these bars are so sparsely visited that they already close at midnight and the ladies heading to the night clubs to really start partying — and maybe find some company for the night.
Big bottles of beer for Baht in all of the girly bars in Nong Khai. Almost identical prices for spirits like I had a gin tonic at Anchor Bar which was just 90 Baht. Lady drinks are also very reasonable at Baht. The majority of bars are found along the Mekong River Promenade eastern side, see map below. Prachacheun deserves its own mention. The Thai guys usually order a bottle of whiskey and some plates of Thai food to share with two or more girls. Prachacheun is owned by Country Club next door see nightclub section below and as soon as the bar closes at around midnight most of the hot chicks are hitting the club unless their customers want to take them somewhere else.
