“Nice for a walk as well night market”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Most probably the nicest thing to do in Vientiane, walking on the shores of the river and to enjoy the night market...

“Gateway to see the Laotian city folks life”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We went to the Mekong Riverfront to watch the sunset. Well the sunset is not so impressive if compare to the Riverfront itself. Many activities are conducted there - The city folks do their evening jogging there; teenage boys riding bicycles showing different tricks to impress the girls; people walking theirs dogs; couples dating; and even a public aerobics class!

“Nice but nothing special”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

If you have visited Phnom Penh or Luang Prabang, your probably asking why are you here?
Its a walk along the Mekong
There's a night market that is Same Same
There's nothing wrong with any of this and at sunset its nice - it's just that if this isn't your first visit to an asian city on the Mekong then don't get too excited

“Chill Place”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Nice place to go if you want to slow things down a bit and keep it simple. You can walk down to the riverside and watch locals fish in the river, or keep to the park/sidewalk area that hosts a pretty cool night market after the sun goes down. There is also a nice rooftop bar just across the street at the east end of the park that has a good vibe. Vientiene as a whole is a sleepy town; if you're expecting anything more exciting than this you will be disappointed.

“High energy aerobics”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

It is well worth taking the time to stroll on the boulevard along the Mekong River.
A highlight is the daily aerobics sessions at 6.00pm each night where anyone is welcome to join in. I don't know how they keep up the frenetic pace for an hour.
