(分潤回饋) Vientiane & Mekong River, Laos
4 on sale of 10
The capital and largest city of Laos, situated on a plain northeast of the Mekong River. Because of its strategic river port location in a country that relies heavily on its rivers for transportation and its surrounding hinterland of heavy rice agriculture, Vientiane is Laos' principal economic center.
The Mekong River is only accessible by small craft from Vientiane, and travel to the right bank and the Thai railhead of Nong Khai was only possible by ferry until 1994.
