  • Scarf Indigo dyeing and weaving experience is half a day or a day you can. I don't think anyone can understand is experience in English, while in fact doing so. I can color like that take considerable effort and care. For selling things made here buy souvenirs are available. Transportation is a bit far from the Center, also serving. It was possible to pay in US dollars.

Where to stay in Vientiane

Pretty little Vientiane offers a good range of accommodations, with most either mid-range or upmarket hotels by national standards. Close to the riverfront sit the grandest of the bunch, with newly built high-rise hotels and boutiques set in old French colonial buildings. Move away from the water a little to find some standard, unassuming hotels, mixed in with a few more boutiques and high-rises overlooking the prettier plazas and along the main boulevards. For budget options, look at the guesthouses and hostels on the side streets around Rue Setthathilath, but make sure to reserve your room early to avoid disappointment.
