Get to Know Vientiane and What It Offers for Expats

Laos' friendly capital is nestled along the mighty Mekong River and is conveniently right on the border with neighboring Thailand.

Our members are expats or global minds just like you and can help you answer some of those all important questions, such as "where can I get a good internet connection?", "where are the best places to live in Vientiane?", and "do I need a work permit?".
