Ten Pin Bowling
Roll with the locals
What we say:
In a city without a lot of entertainment options, bowling has really taken off with young Laotians. There are two bowling alleys in Vientiane: the Lao Bowling Centre a couple blocks past the Lao Plaza Hotel on Khoun Boulom Rd and The Alley a
Visiting either one is a lot of fun and a sure way to make some local friends. The Alley has more modern facilities, but the Lao Bowling Centre is livelier with loud music and lots of Beerlao and often stays open until 03:00 on the weekend. Though we didn't see any official price list, foreigners seem to pay $2 per game before 19:00 and $3 per game after 19:00, while locals pay less. The price includes shoe rentals but remember to bring your own socks.
Lao Bowling Centre T: (021) 223 219. Open 09:00–24:00 (but usually later)
ITECC T: (021) 415 477. http://www.lao-itecc.la/. Open 13:00–24:00.
