Vientiane is one of the world`s more obscure capital cities and is situated on the Mekong River. The capital of Laos is not as frantic as other Asian capitals with light traffic on the wide tree-lined boulevards. Part of Quai Fa Ngum on the Mekong near the downtown area, is lined by renovated buildings where there are many simple outdoor cafès on stilts. The capital has interesting museums and galleries, and the Lao National Museum, was a French governor`s residence that houses an interesting exhibition of Lao`s struggle for independence.
