From this shot it can be seen that the Ferris wheels are set up right at the edge of Fa Ngum Road, which runs along the Mekong waterfront in downtown Vientiane.
The Mekong River shore is festive during the boat races, especially at night.

Halpern was lucky enough to witness both the boat race festival and the That Luang festival during his last visit to Laos. Both feature much neon as they continue into the night.
Here are four Ferris wheels arranged side by side. Each is topped with the flag of the Kingdom of Laos.
