5 Things to Do in Vientiane 2020 (Starting from ₹2586 Only)

The capital of Laos, Vientiane is unlike any other world capital. The chaos and bustle that characterises urban centres is markedly absent from this city full of Buddhist temples and monasteries and its broad tree-lined boulevards. Its history under the French colonial rule, which lasted well into the twentieth century, has left its mark in the architecture of the city which is a delightful blend of French and traditional structures. The air of calm that fills the city is a legacy of its strong Buddhist culture which has flourished for centuries in Laos. Spending a couple of days in Vientiane will allow you to explore the city in all its rich heritage. The many iconic and historically relevant Buddhist landmarks that are situated all over the city are its best attractions. Pha That Luang, a symbol recognizable anywhere in Laos, is a grand gold-covered Buddhist stupa. Built around 1566, the stupa stands tall as a symbol of the best of Vientiane’s culture. One of the best things to do in Vientiane are its parades, live music and holy ceremonies in November which attract tourists from all over the world. Other spectacular sites of the city include the worship site of Wat Si Muang where wishes are said to come true, Wat Si Saket which is home to thousands of Buddhist statues, the impressive Patuxai Victory Monument, and That Dam stupa.

Though full of heritage and bursting with tradition, Vientiane is steadily acquiring a modern vibe as upscale hotels and restaurants come up to cater to the tourists who are beginning to discover the charms of Laos. Since Vientiane is not heavily populated, cycling around the city is a great way of enjoying its myriad sights and sounds. Cycle leisurely to all the major landmarks, visit the local markets, and try out the cuisine of Laos which is rich in fresh herbs, and full of curiously rustic tastes. End your stay in Vientiane by strolling down to the Mekong river bank, and watch as the warm rays of the sun colour the river with a passionate glow before it bids the river goodbye. Check out the best things to do in Vientiane for a memorable vacation here.
