The final test-run of the opening and closing ceremony was held last weekend (28th Nov). Everything seemed to go well with more than 20,000 spectators took their seats at the National Stadium in Vientiane. Most of the games are also planned to take place in the capital city. Although, due to the lack of financial resources and limited sports facilities, there will be less number of sports playing in the tourment e.g. from 43 games from last tournament in Bangkok to 28 games, but all the major ones will certainly be included in the list such as golf, soccer, swimming, badminton, tennis, boxing and Sepak Takraw.So this can be a good opportunity for someone who failed to reserve their holidays during Christmas break. South East Asia will always welcome you.
Vientiane is now changing a lot (in case you've been there before). With the financial injection and collabolations from their good neighbors like Thailand, China and Vietnam. Many restructuring projects on the basic infrastructure like roads have been introduced to this city in the past recent years. So Let’s book your trip to Vientaine now!!
