Vientiane is situated on a curve of the Mekong River, which separates the city from neighbouring Thailand. It is the capital and largest city in Laos but unlike other capital cities in Southeast Asia, Vientiane is relatively laid-back with a small town atmosphere. Complementing the relaxed atmosphere is the friendliness of its people, who are generally welcoming towards foreign visitors. More at Guide to Vientiane.
