Vientiane

Vientiane might be the most populated city in Lao, it remains quite a small town with less than 300 000 inhabitants. Some sights are interesting. Patuxai is a nice Lao version of the Paris “Arc de Triomphe”. The stupa “Pha That Luang” is a national symbol: quite big and nice… for Laos, read very far from those in Myanmar! The charm of the quiet Vientiane is more on the Mekong side: many enjoy the avenue along the river. The single speed (fixed) bikes are very popular among the kids there. The parent have a big SUV (Toyota Hilux), the kids own a “Coyote” fixed bike!
