I had so much fun with my friends visiting this old and run down bowling centre. This is a bowling centre where it is so lively with loud music, cold beer and chatty, smiling locals. The balls are badly chipped, the scoreboard is temperamental (occasionally...More

If you are looking for something a little different to do in Vientiane or if you are templed out then head for the alley! Located down a non descript side road it is quiet, dated and battered but so much fun. At around £1.10 each...More

Had so much fun here when we visited. The venue is old and run down but this almost adds to the experience. The score board would randomly give me strikes, even though I had 1 or 2 pins remaining. The balls were chipped and the...More

First of all, in defence of the staff, when they warmed up, they were really nice. They took photos for us and we're smiley and chatty. The place is great. There were bowling balls with huge chunks missing and you could hear them clunking down...More

Yes, the lanes are garbage and the house balls look like they have been in use for 40 years. But you don't come here to bowl a 300. You come here to enjoy the legendary BeerLao while having fun bowling with locals. The price is...More

Wow, sooo much cheaper than Sydney. 10 frames (1 game) is around $1.70 and they don't force you to change shoes. Sure the place is old and looks deserted but great fun and everything works.

We found this bowling alley on trip advisor. It's close enough to the tourist area to walk to, but mostly used by locals. Games were $2 AUS per person. The lanes were incredibly wonky, not all of the pins stood up straight, and the computer...More
