What do I need to know before moving to Vientiane?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Vientiane, they said...

"No advice. Depends on your style of life. I grew up in the mountains of Colorado in a cabin with no electricity, running water, and snowed in 3 months of the year," explained one expat living in Vientiane, Laos.

"Expats should be aware that Vientiane is a relatively small city, so it is important to research the area before moving. It is also important to note that the cost of living in Vientiane is relatively low, but the quality of goods and services may not be as high as in other countries. Additionally, the language spoken in Vientiane is Lao, so it is important to learn some basic phrases before arriving. Expats should also be aware that the climate in Vientiane is tropical and humid, so it is important to be prepared for hot and humid weather. Finally, it is important to note that Vientiane is a relatively safe city, but it is still important to take precautions when travelling," said another expat in Vientiane, Laos.
