Homosexuality isn’t criminalized in Laos but the existing laws have suppressed the rights of the Laos LGBTQ community. Overall, the Lao people tend to be welcoming to visitors. Vientiane, the capital has the most of gay friendly hotels Vientiane..

However, while the country is tolerant towards LGBTQ visitors, Lao society remains traditional and conservative towards homosexuality.

Vientiane, Laos’ national capital, mixes French-colonial architecture with Buddhist temples such as the golden, 16th-century Pha That Luang, which is a national symbol.

Vientiane Day Trips

Vientiane is definitely worth a couple of days. There is lots to see. However IF you only have 4 days, then i would suggest only Luang Prabang. ideally 3 days Luang prabang and 2 days vientiane would be a good break down

A small boutique hotel that is in an excellent location, right in the heart of the city, but not in a noisy part. Staff friendly and helpful. We had a fairly spacious room with a small balcony overlooking a garden and walkway. The Ansara does not have lifts.

This us a very smart hotel in a great location. Minutes from the river and night market. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast was served indoors but we really liked this and the service excellent. Food was fresh and served hot.

This is a lovely small hotel in a great location, very close to night market etc, but quiet. Good sized rooms, nice pool.

Perfect location within the city, close to the river and the night market. Good facilities and pleasant staff (though not all speak English). The rooms we had were a little dated but still comfortable. There is a good sized swimming pool in a central garden/courtyard but the number of sunbeds was only just adequate and during a busy period some guests might have to miss out. We had a varied and tasty breakfast and the evening meal we had in the hotel was excellent. Value for money definitely.

The hotel is a good place to stay at the end of a holiday. We stayed 2 nights in total and had a room with view on the swimming pool. The room itself is nice, the bed is very comfortable and the airco working properly. The bathroom could need a renovation (shower head a.o.) but it’s good enough for a few nights.

The swimming pool is really nice and has fresh water. And lots of shade in the water. Swimming pool area is small and has only a few beds. Too much chlorine in the water.

The breakfast buffet is great and has lots a baguette, french patisserie & fruit. The food is overall good. Especially the fried spring rolls.

The grounds were lovely with a large central swimming pool. Very relaxing and a must after a day of exploring the city.

The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

The food was lovely and they have a good selection of western and Laos food. The prices are pretty good too.

The hotel is set back from a busy main road just outside the city centre, but as you walk into the lobby it becomes a green oasis with rooms on two floors surrounding two pools, one swimming and one decorative, amongst palm trees. The area is rather transitional, as construction is going on nearby of a very large commercial centre. Hence the outlook from the breakfast terrace is not ideal at present. Breakfast was enjoyable with a wide choice.

This hotel was a real oasis in a dusty , hot city. The grounds are really lovely and the hotel is surprisingly quiet. At night and into the morning the garden is is a veritable fairyland of twinkly lights. The rooms around the pool are especially nice and the lanai was a nice place to sit out on and write in ones journal or just to meditate on the beautiful surroundings.

The rooms were very comfortable, quiet and nicely appointed. The breakfast buffet was quite comprehensive with everything from coogee to pancakes. The restaurant is on the second floor overlooking the pool above a very nice lounge. Seating was available both inside or outside on a covered porch. The Green Park Hotel sits on the eastern edge of Vientiane proper and is about a 20 minute walk into the area frequented by the westerners. Fortunately there was a free shuttle into the main part of town that left every hour and picked up at the quarter past hour.
