Vientiane is not your average capital. Heavily influenced by the French, the seat of the Laotian government lacks aspects of what is commonly defined as a hustle-and-bustle metropolis where time moves fast. The contrary is actually the truth; tree-lined boulevards with small coffee corner, temples and religious shrines where a coming-and-going of the faithful may be the only traffic jam during that day, and where life takes on an even slower pace when settling down along the Mekong for the sun to set. The aura of Laos’ kind-hearted city flows, not inadvertently, also further afield. A slightly different approach of Vientiane’s artistic and warm-hearted side comes in the shape of this almost full day exploration of the often overlooked side.
