A landlocked country in Southeast Asia. Its border neighbours are Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand, Viet Nam and China. A large majority of the Lao people still live in rural areas. The country stands out for its mountainous landscape, rivers and waterways.
Vientiane often surprises with its relaxing and serene atmosphere, which prevails despite it being the capital of Laos. This city of 3,920 square kilometers became the country’s administrative seat since the 16th century, thus making it the home of numerous historical landmarks and ancient monuments of religious significance. The former French colony is also the perfect place to watch the sun set along the Mekong River, with a bottle of Beerlao in your hand.
