In Vientiane I came to do a single entry Thai visa. And these maps helped me a lot to orient myself on the spot. Information regarding visa processing, bus schedule and how to get to Vientiane, you can find in my post - Applying for a Thai visa in Laos.
How to use the card
The Vientiane map consists of four parts in decreasing order of scale - the central part of the city, the main part of the city, the entire city, and the entire area as a whole, including neighboring villages.
Each map file is lined with a grid, and each line is labeled. Just like on the globe, you can find the point you need by coordinates on this map. You can download a list of all objects on this map in a text file. The map pointer looks like this: «109 Hospital: IL208», where the first part is the name of the hospital and the second part is its coordinates on the map.
Alphabetical index of objects
All maps are large, clickable, and you can download them to your computer.
