Laos - Vientiane & Around (Chapter)
This is the Vientiane & Around chapter from Lonely Planet's Laos guidebook.
From its sleepy tuk-tuk drivers to its cafe society and affordable spas, this former French trading post on the Mekong is languid to say the least. The historic old quarter beguiles with tree-lined boulevards crowded with frangipani and tamarind, glittering temples, wandering Buddhist monks and lunging naga (dragon) statues.
