Recently, in January, 2017, Laos’ government has established That Luang Walking Street in Vientiane, a new attraction for visitors. Besides Vientiane Night Maket, the existence of the walking street has added up more interesting and fun to Vientiane.
The route starts from Wat Chan, Chao Anouvong Park which is near Mekong River, the walking street opened up a wide and big space for river sight-seeing. From 4:30PM, all vendors start to unfold their shop alongside the street. And then the crowded atmosphere is all over the walking street. There are not only tourist but also local visiting and going out. Especially, in a summer night with cool atmosphere coming from Mekong River will bring you some pleasant feeling and relief after a long day on Laos’ Tour.

Walking street is a brilliant idea for both visitors and local since they have an open space to hang out and enjoy the atmosphere, especially near Mekong River and That Luang Lake. Just get a drink, gather friend and explore the night market with fun!
