Vientiane

 

Vientiane is the capital of Laos and relatively tranquil place if you compare it with for example Bangkok or Hanoi. It is a relatively small city, but filled with interesting sights. The Pha That Luang is a Buddhist temple and can be considered the National symbol of Laos.

Luang Prabang

 

Luang Prabang as a city is a UNESCO world heritage site. At the centre of town you find the Phu Si which is a hill with several temples from where you have a nice view of the area.  Most touristic sights are in the old quarter.

 

Pakse

 

Pakse is a town in Southern Laos. It is the gateway to areas of natural beauty such as the Bolaven Plateau and the 400 Islands. Just south of Pakse you can find the UNESCO heritage site of Wat Phu.

 

Vang Vieng

 

Vang Vieng is a small town between Vientiane and Luang Prabang. It used to be a popular destination for backpackers. It’s main attraction was inner tubing where you go down the river on a tube and stop at several bars for drinks. In November 2012 the government closed all the bars along the river, there is no more tubing. Vang Vieng is still an amazing destination, it has some beautiful nature.
