One day tour by Jumbo in vientiane
The Jumbo has long been popular in Laos. Similar in design and decoration to the Skylab above, but smaller and with a less powerful engine, it has both front and rear brakes which you’re guaranteed to hear squealing across town.
We’ll start the tour by watching the making of and then tasting kao larm, the delicious traditional dessert of sticky rice and coconut roasted in bamboo tubes. Then stop by a Lao coffee shop to try some of the local brew and go to thad luang, patuxaiy, vat sisaket and vat phakeo
For lunch we visit the most popular kao piak shop in lao is a traditional Lao breakfast or lunch soup made with a fragrant broth and thick handmade rice flour noodles. Watch the preparation for the lunchtime rush and learn how this delicious soup is made. Then sit down and enjoy your lunch with the locals! Stop at a thum mak houng (green papaya salad) stall where you’ll learn how to make papaya salad just the way you like it.
