Laos IV: Vientiane – The Sleepiest Capital in Asia
heading (paragraph): States
Published: 4.9.2015

No traffic jams, no crowds, no tourists – this is Vientiane, Laotian capital. It is on the border of the northern and southern Laos. It offers cheap hostels, guest houses and hotels. Unlike Thailand or also Luang Prabang , the city is grey. Partially due to Communist government. You can, hoever, enjoy beautiful Buddhist temples and one of the most interesting stupas in Laos or, for instance, Patuxai – the arch de triumph, inspired by the one in Paris.

Join us in watching this video. Certainly, you will realize Vientiane is worth a visit!

I am watching green hills, cliffs, rice fields, and stone jars from the window on a minibus. The jars are large, small, oval, with and without a lid. Unlike the road, these are hard to not to see. There is no proper tourist trail but rather a road lined on both sides.

I wouldn’t believe there could be a city in Asia of such proportions that is so quiet. No traffic jams, no crowds, no crowds of tourists. It is true that Laotian capital Vientiane has “only” 750 thousand people. Still, I was very surprised. I don’t agree with Lonely Planet which says there is nothing to see and it advices you to better avoid it.
