Biking in Vientiane, Laos

Strolling Vientiane could be exciting, less costly and efficient through biking. When I learned that tourist attractions in Vientiane could be reached through biking, I was so excited. I learned driving a bike since I was a kid. During my high school days, I used bike to go to school which was located 2.5 km from our home.

Bikes in Vientiane can be found anywhere in the city proper. I found one along Avenue Lane Xang, just in front of Talat Sao Shopping Mall. I got one for 15000 Lao kip rental. The bike should be returned before 6 pm. They will ask to leave your passport. Don’t worry, policemen already aware of this arrangement.

So here I was, biking in Laos’ capital city, Vientiane. Take note though that going to Pha That Luang, you’ll be climbing for I think 1 deg slope, so it will take more effort. Vientiane roads have less vehicles so biking is not that dangerous.
