My home suburb in Dongpalane, Vientiane
7th Jun, 2017 at 7:02am
 
Just a peek of Dongpalane which is one of the biggest suburb/village in Vientiane, Laos. My home is located in this area which is why I tend to enjoy being in the city than the rural areas of Laos.

There's usually a lot of traffic during peak hours. The Morning Market, a big shopping center, is only a short walking distance away.

They are Lao Buddhist style coffins to hold ashes.

These coffins are found in every Buddhist temples where they keep the remains of the dead.

Every Buddhist Laotians are cremated when we pass away. I will be placed into something similar to those last two photos one day.

I saw a motorbike accident in my suburb today and it caused heavy traffic. The guy lying on the road has a serious injury and is assisted by workers in the area.

This western gentleman with the big motorbike is looking at a heavy fine because the road accident led to damages to the motorbike and severe injury.

The ambulance took him away quickly, he couldn't move at all when I saw him on the road.

No, I drive in a car, I own a BMW.

I am wondering about Laotian motorcycle taxi drivers. Do they try to get to your destinations at the fastest speed regardless of right-of-way?
Is there a mandatory helmet law?
If the motorcycle taxis save inordinate amounts of time, then
I least I died actually getting somewhere! How bad is Laotian traffic? Is it worth the risk?

Motorcycle taxi drivers do not have any right-of-way privileges in Laos.

In Laos, the amount the customer must pay in order to get to their destination is already agreed with the driver before you can hop onto the motorcycle, tuk tuk and jumbo, so there is no need for them to speed or take you through the longest route.

You are required to wear a helmet in Laos but most of the time people can get away with it. If you are stopped by the police, just give them some money and you're right to go. It's as simple as that.

Any traffic congestion is only in Vientiane, the capital city of Laos. Traffic is not bad, most traffic occurs during peak hours in the morning and late afternoon.
