The capital of Laos-Vientiane offers a lot of awesome things to do. Check out these awesome things to do in Vientiane, Laos to make your stay unforgettable!
Vientiane is bursting with awesome temples. None of them are very old since they were destroyed in turns because of several invasions. That doesn’t make them less impressive, though. They are all richly decorated, which makes them all works of art. Here and there you will find an ancient ruin which once was a temple, and a new complex built next to it. A lot of temples are painted with stories coming from the Buddhist religion. The temples you should definitely not miss are Wat Si Saket, Pha That Luang and Wat Ong Tue Mahawihan.
Join the Bicycle tour
In Vientiane, you will find bicycles for rent for just half a dollar a day. Local life is to be found just outside of the city centre, and it is so worth checking out. Ride past the Mekong and view the temples, enjoy the feeling of seeing Thailand on the other side. Stop here and there to have a chat and a drink with the locals and take in the amazing countryside.
Enjoy Aerobics during sunset
Get your daily dose of physical exercise: join the aerobics group on the boulevard next to the Mekong at sunset! The whole boulevard turns into one big gym. You will find several groups on the boulevard, all with their trainer on a small platform and a microphone. It is mostly women joining the open air gym, but men are more than welcome as well. Don’t forget to pay a small donation of about 0.30 USD.
