Where in Vangvieng and Vientine would you recommend for a 40 year old couple young at heart to celebrate Valentines Day with some dancing in a romantic place with a view in Vanvieng and Vientine??
Please also recommend new clean accomodation for 20 to 25 usd

Hi, when in Vientiane I would suggest Kua heaven restaurant - there is nice beer garden and they have good food, karaoke and is popular with Lao people (younger and your generation).

It's at T2. Yeah, it's kind of strange name for the street, and it's near Wattay airport. You'll have to take tuk-tuk.

Then, you can also dance there, food and drinks are reasonably priced, atomspehre is fine, but not many foerigner go there because it's a bit far from the main tourist areas in Vientiane. As for local, it's suprb and if you like something 'different' you could go where Lao like to go (except for the bars in centre).

Maybe if you'd like more 'international' atmosphere, take a walk by the Mekong at the 'promenade' and sit down where you'll see atmosphere that suits you. There are lots of shift/wooden restaurants, some directly viewing the river and have nice sunsets, although these are not really 'danicing' places, but more for eating and drinking. Restaurants in buildings are right behind them by the Mekong. Here you could perhaps try 'Bor Penyang' restaurant and bar which has rooftop terrace with nice views, it's very lively place and popular hangout. Dancing happens there, too :)

Near fountain, a bit away from Mekong but still in centre, Khop Chai Deu bar and restaurant can be nice place in evenings, has good atmosphere and live music as well, many foreign and local like the place and has some outdoor terraces. The view here is nothing special.

Anyone knows for these places so it wont be hard to find. It's all in walking distance in the centre, but also it will depend where you'll stay in the end.

We kind of always stay a bit out of the centre. Maybe closest within your price range would be Mongkol hotel where we stayed with our family and it's in the quieter end by the Mekong, not far (about 10 min walking) to the main promenade (by Mekong). They had good service and nice and clean Lao-style rooms, which was one of the best things about that hotel. Their address is 25 Fa Ngum rd (not far from Spirit house and MAG centre) and e-mail is: if want to contact them.

I hope other VTers will also add some of their hotels/guesthouses suggestions to you, so that you'll get more ideas.

Travel Tips for Vientiane

That Luang Festival

by ValbyDK

That Luang Festival is an important Buddhist festival and is held around the That Luang Stupa (read my other tips). Normally the festival is held in November – during the full moon of the 12th lunar month…

The festival is 3 days of religious ceremonies and a week of general festivities and entertainment – and people from all over Laos travels to Vientiane to celebrate.

I went to the festival area a couple of times during my stay in Vientiane, and quite a sight with the many orange-dressed monks around the stupa - combined with the huge festival area with modern music and stalls where you can buy anything. If you are in Vientiane in November check out the festival schedule.

Just wander

by jmmorgan

Vientiane is quite a small place. It is very easy to get about on foot. There is plenty of local transport around to get you to out of the way places or for when you feel a little weary. The Lao people are not at all pushy and will simply smile at you. They have not yet entered the world of mass tourism and intense competition for your dollars.

the curfew?

by richiecdisc

With some lights finally flickering in the distance, we knew we were close to the city center and looked forward to leaving the once cozy but now unfriendly feeling road behind. Once in town, we went for something to eat and on our way home, we ran into the Aussie couple, sitting at an outside café. They invited us to join them and soon I convinced them to hit a beer garden that had Beer Lao on tap. We had a fun night there, downing the easy drinking beer into the night. But it would not be into the wee hours. It seemed that Laos has a curfew that we had missed out on as we had been in bed early every night since our arrival. Yes, indeed, at 11 PM, we were asked to leave the bar and go home within a half-hour. I was too tired to be upset over what seemed absurd and once in bed, I realized it was all for the better. Sure, it was only 11:30 PM but in less than eight hours, we would be on a plane to Hanoi. And Vietnam would prove to me a bit more trying in the patience department than its backwater sister was. We would need all the sleep we could get to tackle it.

Patouxay Park

by picek

Park behind Patouxay monument is popular public area among Lao. In terms of design it's not very special but large fountain (with music at times) draws population to pose for pics which will hang in Lao living rooms, especially for those visitors who come from other provinces - as they are many of them who will visit their capital once or a few times in their lives. Youngsters, couples, families with children, elders and foreign tourists like to promenade at that park - while Lao seem to prefer it from tourist district by Mekong which is more expensive and somewhat feels exclusive. One can snack at the snack shop or buy fruits from fruit sellers by the road - which normally will charge higher price to foreigner.

There aren't many trees at the park (see them at its north end) - with trimmed bushes and paved platform it's somewhat too hot place to hang out at daytime except on overcast days. For that reason it will get most crowded in evenings between and after sunset... and modest light and water splashing show will be used to draw attention and praise of local visitor. The site is excellent to watch people in their amusement and to meet locals.

Kissing in Public

by SumTingWong

Kissing on public is very rude in Laos, especially kissing like the europeans do when they meet people. This is considered extremely rude and inappropriate in Laos, as well as much od Southeast Asia. Instead of kissing you can nop' and or shake hands. To say hello in Lao is: SaBaiDee and to ask how are you is: SaBaiDeeBoh?!!!
