Vientiane, Laos travel info

Here is travel information for Vientiane – in case there are any travellers out there looking for it… We were there March 25th – 30th, 2007.

Hotel/Guesthouse:

Riverside Hotel – this place is new and not in guidebooks yet. It’s a few doors down from the Douang Deuane hotel towards the river. I highly recommend it. At their special opening price of $16 a night it is a bargain. All rooms have cable tv, ac, fridge and are cleaned everyday.

Restaurants:

Joma – right across from Nam Phu, this place is fantastic for breakfast or lunch. We ate there almost everyday. I recommend the lasagna. The baked goods & coffee are excellent too. It is also a great A/C sanctuary. The upstairs seating is good for reading.

La Cave de Chateaux – right on Namphu, this place is a bit expensive but v. v. good french/italian food. It is similarly priced to all the other french restaurants.

Nazim – as elsewhere in Laos, this place has great & cheap indian food.

Chicago Bar – this place is on the same street as Riverside Hotel and is a really nice bar. I was surprised there weren’t more people there. The upstairs has a projection tv and you can watch any DVD you want! (they have many to choose from) As long as you buy a drink or two of course :-).

Transport:

We took the “Smooth as Silk” VIP overnight bus to Pakse ($15) and it was about as nice and comfortable as it is possible for an overnight bus to be.
