Tour Itinerary

Greeted  at airport by our guide and driven to hotel. Check in hotel and enjoy a short city tour with Wat Sisaket and Haw Pha Kaew Temples.

OVERNIGHT: Vientiane MEALS: No

On arrival at Vientiane Airport, you are greeted by our guide and taken to your hotel by private transfer. We spend our time exploring the capital city of Laos, Vientiane. This laidback city stretching long the mighty Mekong River conjures up exotic images with the curious mix of Lao, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, and French influences. The initial history of Vientiane dates back the sixteenth century, but it left its legacy in form of few pagodas which are still standing in place after many struggles for the independence. The recent economic reform of Laos has made this small city undergo some vast changes with growing ambition. However, the historic old quarter of Vientiane still houses many French colonial villas, boutique hotels, vibrant shop malls, open air restaurants and tree lined boulevards. We visit  Wat Sisaket, the oldest temple in Vientiane. This beautiful structure features remarkable frescoes and cloister wall where are laying almost 7,000 Buddha statues in all sizes. They have been made from wood, stone, and bronze and brought here  hundred years ago. Nearby is the former royal temple of Haw Pha Kaew, which previously housed the famous Emerald Buddha Image. This sacred jade statue is currently displayed at  Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok. We visit this landmark and enjoy a walk along the Mekong riverbank, a good place to enjoy drinks and explore the authentic local way of life.
