How to spend 1 day in Vientiane?

Postby farang » Fri Apr 03, 2015 7:12 am

Hi Laos forum

I will be visiting Northern Thailand this month, and as the border to Laos is very close by, I plan to go and see the capital, Vientiane. Unfortunately I will only have 1 day (from 8am - 4pm) in Vientiane, but I'd like to get the most out of the day. What are the must-see places for a person who is in a rush :-)

If you are entering over the friendship bridge then expect some delays there as it is a very crowded crossing. Can take an hour each way so I have heard.
Check out the museums and go for a stroll along the Mekong waterfront.

Thanks for the advice :) Are there any museums you think are particularly important for me to visit?

For the limited time you have try the Lao National museum and the Lao peoples Army museum.
