A three hour minivan from Vang Vieng to the capital Vientianne started our day. Thankfully neither of us were poorly today!

After checking into our hostel (which is more like a nice hotel!) we went for a walk around the centre, starting with a snack in our favourite cafe, Joma, first! We walked along the bank of the Mekong river, admired a giant statue on the riverbank (still not sure who this was a statue of!), visited a temple then gave into the heat and headed back to the hostel.


This evening we had dinner at an amazing French restaurant next to the fountain down the road from our hostel. For the equivalent of about £5 we had a three course dinner of onion soup, fillet steak with baked potato and three sauces and fruit salad with lemon syllabub. We both think it was the best fillet steak either of us have ever had!!! They even had a decent house red wine which didn't cost a fortune so we shared a carafe. It was sooooooo yummy (we have been seriously deprived of wine since we left the UK)! Something tells me we'll be heading back to the same restaurant tomorrow evening!
