Vientiane, the capital of Lao, is local on the banks of the Mekong River. Across a narrow stretch of water is northern Thailand, a country with similar traditions and ethnic minorities; only a few hundred yards of isolation has left Laos a very differnt country from its neighbor. Vientiane is a compositeof many cultural influences; wide free-lined boulevards and timeless villas are the legacy of the French, whose influence stretched across indochina from the late 1890s until the Geneva Accord of 1954. In Ventiane you will find the glittering stupa of That Luang the largest stupa in Laos, constructed in 1566 by King Setthathirat. Vientiane, like its neighbor Phnom Penh, has the Patusay Victory Gate; both are reminicent of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
