    Vientiane is the capital and largest city of Laos, situated on the Mekong River near the border with Thailand. Vientiane became the capital in 1563 due to fears of a Burmese invasion. During French rule, Vientiane was the administrative capital and, due to economic growth in recent times, it has now become the economic centre of Laos. The estimated population of the city is 754,000. The city hosted the 25th Southeast Asian Games in December 2009 celebrating the 50 years of SEA Games.
