Vientiane - Post Report Question and Answers
Are there personal security concerns to be aware of at this post? Please describe.
I generally found Vientiane to be a very safe city with little crime. - Jun 2020
Not really. Petty crime exists, but it's better here than in most countries. - Oct 2018
We did have a few house break ins during our time, but no one was hurt as it was a time when people were away. During our time we also had 24-hour guards posted at Embassy housing clusters. As in any city in the world, there is petty theft (e.g., purse stolen from person on motorbike, pickpocketing in touristy areas). - Jan 2014
