How do I find a place to live in Vientiane?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"One of the best ways to find a place to live in Vientiane is to search online for rental listings. Websites such as Expat.com, Lao Property, and Lao Real Estate are great resources for finding rental properties in the city. Additionally, you can also search for rental listings on popular classifieds websites such as Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace. Additionally, you can also ask around in the local expat community for recommendations on rental properties. Finally, you can also contact local real estate agents who specialize in rental properties in Vientiane," said one expat who made the move to Vientiane.
