Vientiane Full day tour
This easygoing city and temples tour begins at Vat Sisaket, one of the oldest temples in Vientaine, featuring over 6,840 remarkable Buddha images. Next up are the stunning Ho Phra Keo, the famous That Luang Stupa and Anousavari or the Victory Gate inspired by L’ Arc de Triomphe in France. Our last stop is at the Talaat Sao (Morning Market), where you can find hundreds of shops selling superior silk weaving, metalwork, and woodcarving pieces. After lunch, visit the surroundings of Vientiane including Buddha Park, Ban Nong Bouathong weaving village, and enjoy a stroll along the Mekong River at sunset.
Explore the capital city of Laos in any mode you like, by foot, bicycle, tuk-tuk, or minivan. Vientiane is now rapidly transforming from ‘town’ into a full-fledged ‘city’ – obviously awakening from its legendary laid-back pace and regaining former glories as one of the ‘pearls’ of South-East Asia.
See the landmarks and highlights of Tad Luang with its Buddha relics, the Kaisone Phomvihane and Hor Pra Kheo museums, Wat Sisakhet and Wat Simuang, or Patuxai, the ‘vertical landing strip’. All have their very own story to tell! Embark on day tour to the Nam Ngum reservoir or the whimsical Buddha Park.
In the outskirts of Vientiane watch wild elephants at Ban Na, or discover the beautiful and diverse world of orchids in the Phou Khao Khouay National Protected Area.
Use Vientiane as hub for cross-country motorbike or cycling tours, enjoyable kayaking trips to Vang Vieng or cave expeditions.
