2014 November, Vientiane, Lao PDR

GSB_Laos-0472-20141126_VientianeJust wrapped up a work week at our office (Hatfield Consultants Mekong, HCM) in Vientiane, Lao PDR. Its a nice time of year to be in Vientiane – rains have finished and the intense heat hasn’t kicked in yet. ¬†Vientiane continues to develop rapidly, seemingly on track to rival Bangkok and other regional cities for traffic congestion (although it is a far smaller city) and the rush hour is relatively short. A number of new restaurants have sprung up since I was last here about 6 months ago, and new hotels, shopping centres etc. are sprouting up all over town. A few shots of the trip can be seen here.
