Views of Laos: Vientiane

30 08 2013

A short flight brings us to the capital city, Vientiane. A very small feeling city but relaxed and welcoming. From its soviet-style square, to a selection of temples and a colonial-style museum this was an easy city to explore during our all-too-brief visit.

The full set of photographs from this part of the trip can be found here.
