Vientiane

Vientiane ©
The riverside capital of Laos, Vientiane still has a relatively small urban area and a laid-back, relaxed feel to it.
When in Vientiane, make a side trip to see Nam Ngum Dam in Thalat, approximately Thalat away. There's lots more to do: walk around Buddha Park, stop by Mai Savanh Lao, appreciate the history behind Black Stupa (That Dam), and take in the views from Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge.

To find photos, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Vientiane route maker app.

New York City, USA to Vientiane is an approximately 24-hour flight. You'll lose 12 hours traveling from New York City to Vientiane due to the time zone difference. Traveling from New York City in November, expect Vientiane to be much warmer, temps between 89°F and 72°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Champasak Town.
