“Sports”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Not much of the Mekong to see during thecdry season but in late afternoon locals gather do join some sort of community sports event. I passed by on a Tuesday around 6pm and found over a hundred people busy doing a very 80ies style tai chi/aerobics. Anyone can join in the fun

“Riverside desert”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

This used to be a favourite evening place for a beer, a snack and the sunset over Mekong.
Now it is a big wall to protect towards flooding and a oad was built a top of it. No food stalls anymore but you can bring your own picnic food and something to drink and the sunsets are just as great as they used to be. quite a lot of peopla comes down to make a sunset picture but that´s all. In daytime it gives the impression of a desert by the riverside.

“Good for the evening stroll”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

It is rather empty here during daytime. Too hot. But it is very busy at night time. Next to the evening market. It's a great place to watch the sunset. Plenty of music and aerobic classes in the evening at a VERY loud level. Weekends are very busy with local people.

“Area still under construction in 2013 but a lot completed.”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Great place to walk at any time of the day or evening. In the evening it is alongside the night market and makes a wonderful extension for a walk. You will see groups of locals being led in exercises. Very well used by the locals. At the opposite end from the market locals set up small eateries in the evening. A great place to watch the sun setting and keeping cool on a warm evening.

“Top of our list of things to do in Vientiane”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Hit the Riverside area at 5pm and witness amazing sunsets, people dancing, kite flying and just enjoying the ambience of the setting beside the river. The night markets are just setting up. Walk down to your right and come across some great restaurants which serve very good cheap food.
