I’m not sure why but Vientiane always held a special fascination for me. Maybe it’s because it’s a capital I knew very little about in a country of which I knew even less. Perhaps I was intrigued by the mix of French and Lao cultures. Anyway, even though all backpackers will tell you “one or two days is enough” I really enjoyed it. Plus I always think capital cities hold something special.
