Vientiane, the Laotian national capital is a quiet city by Asian standards, despite being the busiest city in the country. Situated on the Mekong river, the city is a blend of French colonial architecture and gilded temples. The city first became a capital in 1560, when it was the capital of the kingdom of Lan Xang.
Back to Vientiane for a few days, before heading back to Thailand. It really is a lovely capital, more civilised driving than all the others and such a slow pace of life. The people are so friendly ...
