Laotian city transformed by investment

13 Feb , 2024

But with recent Chinese investments, including a new high-speed railway, it has become easier for tourists to admire the city’s golden temples. While more tourist money is welcome, many residents are unhappy with how the tourism surge has transformed their once peaceful way of life.
