Welcome to Vientiane, the capital and largest city of Laos, situated on the Mekong River near the border with Thailand. Vientiane became the capital in 1563 due to fears of a Burmese invasion. During French rule, Vientiane was the administrative capital and, due to economic growth in recent times, it has now become the economic centre of Laos Known as the most relaxed capital in South-East Asia, Vientiane is a welcoming city with a lovely mix of riverside calm, beautiful temples, crumbling French mansions, fabulous food and friendly locals.

According to myth, the city of Vientiane was created by the Naga Souvannanak. Vientiane was an ancient city whose territories covered both banks of the Mekong River. The first name of Vientiane was “Ban Nong Khanthae Phiseuanam” village, which later became “Vientiane” town under the leadership of the first Governor, Bourichan or Phraya Chanthabouly Pasitthisak, between 430-120 B.C.

According to myth Vientiane was created by the Naga Souvannanak who instructed Prince Thattaradtha to start a new city on the eastern bank of the river opposite Maha Thani Si Phan Phao. It became Vientiane when named by the first Governor, Bourichan or Phraya Chanthabouly Pasitthisak, between 430-120 B.C.

Having been razed by Siamese forces in 1827 it fell into ruin and was almost swallowed up the encroaching jungle. However, it passed into French rule in 1893 and it was they who built the beautiful impressive city that your Laos holiday will uncover. It was made capital city in 1899.
