The Most Relaxed Capital in Asia

Vientiane’s “Buddha Park”, just outside the city

Vientiane, Laos, is an underrated and worthwhile city often referred to as the slowest capital city in Asia. Laid-back and economical, Vientiane offers travelers the chance to stay in attractive boutique hotels, walk the leafy streets, explore magnificent temples and a huge gold stupa, and gain an understanding of modern Lao culture. Laos receives only about one tenth the visitors of Thailand – great for travellers who want to get a little off the beaten track. Well-served by international airlines like Vietnam Airlines, Bangkok Airways and even Korean Air, Vientiane is easy to insert into your clients’ next trip to Asia. Goway’s 3-day Vientiane stopover is priced from US $286 / CA $387 per person (twin sharing). Additional touring in Vientiane can be arranged, including to a wacky Buddha park just outside the city, a non-profit rehabilitation centre for victims of unexploded ordnances, and a weaving and textile centre in a traditional Laotian home.
