Laos’ charming capital nestles sleepily on the banks of the River Mekong. Only recently, as Laos becomes a popular destination, has Vientiane shaken off its retiring, backwater image. It's slow pace and relaxed mood remain though. Mingling with the French air that tells of an old colonial settlement and the old Buddhist temples, Vientiene is truly a delightful place to explore.
