Vientiane of Laos not just a stopover destination

ome first-time visitors to Vientiane may think the capital is just a stopover destination because it is an arrival point for people from around the globe. But visitors should at least take the time to learn about some of the exciting activities on offer in this rapidly developing city. Before travelling north or south, Vientiane should be your first option for a couple of days of relaxation. It has a wide range of choices that should encourage overseas visitors to spend a few more days in the
