Vientiane, capital of Laos is Asia’s biggest village. Busy and hectic in comparison to the rest of the country, it is quiet compared with any other city in Asia. Vientiane, as all of Lao’s major cities, is situated on the Mekong river which forms the lifeline of the country. Vientiane is the hub for all travel in the country. The city has a population of 450,000, about 10% of the country. So most districts that are of interest to visitors are fairly close to each other and easily accessible by foot or bicycle.
