Too many travellers write Vientiane off as boring and leave it as soon as they can, often after just a few hours. Admittedly it doesn't have the beauty of Vang Vieng or charm of Luang Prabang but if you scratch beneath the surface you'll find its an interesting place. Visit Wat Sisaket and That Luang, wander the markets at sunset along the waterfront, and try some local delicacies at the night markets along Khouvieng Road.

Vientiane is such a relaxed place. I arrived on Thursday a little bit after noon and the city seemed so dormant, it was hard to believe it was a workday. As the night fell near the river the city starts to come alive with the night market, the locals exercising by the river, the street bbqs, it is just suddenly full of smells, sounds and vibrant colors. Laos is really inexpensive and the food is delicious as it is all over SE Asia. If you spend a few days in Vientiane you won't be disappointed.


The least expensive month is September, with an average of $30 per night. The most expensive month to stay in Vientiane is June, with an average price of $34 per night.
The average price of a hotel in March last year was $32 per night. This is 1% more than the average nightly price of $32 seen over the previous 12 months.
