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. The city itself is full of old colonial mansions, lively markets, and smiling locals. Its small center is very easy for newcomers to get around and the city's relaxed pace can make it a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of some of Asia's bigger cities. InterNations' Vientiane Community is on hand to help you settle into your new home and to share helpful tips for living in the City of Sandalwood. 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?".

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Riyadh or Dubai, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
