If you are looking for something a little different to do in Vientiane or if you are templed out then head for the alley! Located down a non descript side road it is quiet, dated and battered but so much fun. At around £1.10 each...More

Had so much fun here when we visited. The venue is old and run down but this almost adds to the experience. The score board would randomly give me strikes, even though I had 1 or 2 pins remaining. The balls were chipped and the...More
