The Best Way To See Vientiane

Want to know the best way to see Vientiane? This video features highlights of our journey and time in Vientiane, Laos and travel from Bangkok, Thailand.  We share some of the changes to how we travel now, to enjoy a destination fully and deeply.

In the past, we used to take one-month vacations, rushing through the sites. Now we take our time, plan it on our own and slow travel at our own pace. We stay in places for longer periods of time, to understand the pulse of the location. We seek out opportunities to enjoy local establishments and stay in neighbourhoods to see and understand the ‘day in the life’.

We share highlights of Bangkok, Nong Kai and Thanaleng Railway stations. In Laos, we share the following highlights in Vientiane including Wat Sisaket temple, That Dam (Black Stupa) Patuxai monument, Buddha Park(Xieng Khuan) and highlights of our future visit to Vang Vieng.

  3. Hi there, I dont know how exactly your blog made it to my facebook but I am so happy it did. My husband Pierre and I are 2 artists living in Toronto. We are planning on embarking on our own journey in the new year and a half. Our youngest just went off to University and our oldest at 22 just moved back home as such delaying things a bit. We actually almost moved the family out to Chang Mai 10 years ago to start a ceramic production but in the end it wasnt our time so for me right now to live vicariously through you 2 in Thailand and Laos is enough to get me through til its our time. I look forward to your posts and just wanted to say Hi and have a wonderful journey! Cheers Michelle
