How to get from Luang Prabang to Vientiane?
One of the most popular destinations in Laos is Luang Prabang, a small but lively town set in the northern mountains of the country. With its night markets, 33 Buddhist temples, cafes, waterfalls and streets that reflect French colonial influences, it is a relatively easy place to be stuck.
Vientiane is a small city that sits along the Mekong River. With its straightforwardly navigable streets, the capital of Laos makes an easy spot to wander. Rent a bike and explore the sights from a different angle. If you want to relax, head to the Riverside area near the Mekong River. Here there are plenty of bars, cafes, and restaurants. This is also where you will find the city’s landmark buildings such as the Lao National Cultural Hall.
