Vientiane attractions attract those looking to enjoy the town’s laidback atmosphere – one of the most popular things to do here is exploring the town’s ancient stupas and Buddhist temples, where you can see locals praying, monks going about their day, and even participate in religious ceremonies and meditation sessions.

    The Mekong Riverfront is packed during evenings – rows of stalls lining the river sell souvenirs, clothes, and a wide range of street food and drinks. Colonial buildings in the town center serve as living museums and photography spots, thanks to their well-preserved structures and beautiful surroundings.
