  • It is a shopping mall in Vientiane. Certainly jewelry stores, restaurants, clothing stores and numerous stores and electronics stores. But I think from the Japanese look, small shopping mall. This is the current Vientiane. That does not suggest that we look at this shopping mall in its Vientiane, was I glad I did.

  • Talat Sao (or morning market) is a strange mix of (an inside) shopping mall, Thai-Western style, and a fruit-vegetable-meat market. I'm sure you'll get almost everything you want here. Beware - lots o...  more »
  • Splendid Terminal and surrounding shops. And either say for local stores. And sell souvenirs for tourists are few in airport retail shops were selling the same thing, but was more than twice the price. Meisou's and the multiple install Bank ATMs.

  • I bought some perfume at one of the stalls which turned out to be fake. The food court was nice but this is clearly an older mall and it shows. Stalls have metal doors for closing at night and not all places are open. Second floor had an abundance of stores selling gold
  • The major reason why I still go there is becaue goods are sold in reasonable and not really expensive price and the variety ofproducts. However, parking space is a must to be improved. Too little space. Too hot.Should have build the parking lot like central plaza shipping centre. for real, Why bother to charge the parking from customers when no maintenance coming in the future? Overall: 5.5/10
  • LOST! CANT FIND THE WAY AROUND.. Haha.. It's a really unique shopping mall, too much of stuff.. U can try to find everything u could think of.. But it's going to be old version of it.. Anyways, it's fun to see such shopping mall like this.. Great experience.
  • Too many choices can be a good thing. Just male sure you bargain a little. Too mich and you look like an a-hole and too little makes you a fool.
  • This place is awesome. It's massive and there is just about anything you need here.

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.
