The boulevard in the old days in Vientiane, Laos

Vientiane boulevard in 1997 in Central Laos

In 1997 we travelled for 6 months in Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. In those days Vientiane (Laos) was still a dusty little town or even a big village. Along the Mekong was a earth wall where you could enjoy food and drinks. But times are changing and nowadays this same street is along a park that is along the Mekong River. I am missing the old streets of Vientiane, but I am sure the locals do enjoy the new Vientiane.

The World Is My Oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
