It isnt that far if you are a walker. From the river Patuxai is about 2km so 25 mins or so, and from there its only another 1.5km up the right hand top exit from Patuxai to That Luang. You can see That Luang stupa from the turn off at the top right of the patuxai roundabout.
All up probably 40 minutes, or a slow 1 hour stroll
It is a fair walk. It would take you about 45 minutes. You definitely don't want to do that in the heat.
Thanks for sharing. I'm not worried about the distance. Just the heat. I will probably timed it very early in the morning or late evening after I'm done with the sights in Central Vientiane.
