Yes, so awful! I think he is just crazy man whose expectation to see Vientiane likes New York, Rome, Paris, London and the likes. If so, the visiting to Vientiane for him would had meant that he reduced his life by 2-3 years life, if not 5. Why didn't he go wherever he wanted to see? When he compared Vientiane and Nongkhai, he made a bias. No way, Nongkhai can compare with Vientiane in terms of everything. He might get some thing for this expression for sure. However, I am not upset at all that someone had such an opinion about my beloved country capital, Vientiane, simply because it was just his opinion, but the statistic ranked by experts. One the one hand, we know that the people's tastes are different; otherwise we should have married on the same men or the same women. On the other hand, you may have read lots of websites saying that they have good impressions and experiences on Lao people, Lao culture, Lao food and Laos as whole. But so far I haven't seen anyone posted the good one. I believe, this post was from oversea. To some extent, it's good also so that we can share some thoughts. Yes, maybe when I came to Vientiane there was a construction of road, of course it seemed to him ugly. In fact, nowhere on earth the construction site would be clean. This would apply to every city, including Rome where he lives, I guess. In a way, as our country wants to be a tourist site, why don't we make use the critic to build our capital more comfortable to everyone? See what they don't like and what we think is suitable and what we can do based on our capability. Of course we will not build clean path in MekongRiver from North to South as someone mentioned earlier. Just make thing reasonable.Best wishes, TSP
Hello allLong ago i suggested Vientiane's City Council should have a good look at the area where people make a living by selling soft drinks, or beer and other kind of food along the Mekong bank, because it was not paved....and that area always has many tourists from overseas, and now you see there is some not very good comments about it. I saw new picture showing some parts of that area is paved but not all.For me concrete that area is good why Vientiane's authority did not do it. It help to minimize the dust for people who sell things there, and make the area more clean. This matter should be in the priority list of Vientiane City Council. The sooner the better, get it done.

you are right, this guy must be stupid.he may see our Vientiane Capital is too peaceful with too friendly people, so I himself feel bored. because this guy may like traveling in Iraq or Afganistan that may be exciting for him. or his counrty is full of murder, rape, rope...which are exciting for him.So dont care about him, now he may enjoy being kidnapped in Iraq or Afganistan already

The thread title was completely misleading anyway. It's not "foreigners vote...". It's one guy's opinion about Vientiane. No big deal.
