Vientiane

Timing

Vientiane does not have an abundance of sights aside from That Luang and a few other monuments. However, it has a wonderfully sleepy ambience, quaint restaurants, and is a good place to enjoy creature comforts and a Beerlao on the Mekong before heading out into the wilds. Most people stay just a few days; if you throw in some day trips to Nam Ngun or nearby national parks, you could make it a few more. Vientiane is also the place to take care of any business (onward visas, fax and computer connections, etc.)
