Vientiane Tours
Vientiane Stopover
  • Duration: 3 days
  • Price: from 120 US$ per person
  • Highlights: Situated beside the majestic Mekong River, Vientiane is a serene capital with a relaxed charm, tree-lined boulevards and ancient stupas. This three day tour visits the city’s historic temples and national monuments then enjoy boat trip on Nam Ngum Lake to visit fishing villages and experience the lifestyle of local fishermen.

    Vientiane is Southeast Asia’s most laid-back capital. This city boasts outstanding French colonial architecture and low level buildings that are spread out in the city, enhancing a cultural and relaxed atmosphere. Life in this pleasant capital is slow-paced and there is always only a light flow of traffic, even during rush hour! We explore this little, peaceful capital at a leisurely pace visiting some of the finest and most important historical sites in Laos.

     

    ITINERARY

     
     

    DAY 1: ARRIVE VIENTIANE

     
    On arrival in the Laos capital of Vientiane you will be met and transferred to your centrally located hotel (hotel rooms are available for mid-afternoon check-in). Vientiane is a charming and fascinating capital, with an interesting mix of Lao, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, French, and American influences. It is one of the quietest capitals in the world, far away from the bustle and hustle of other Asian capitals and far from the real-estate frenzy of the regional megalopolis.

    After a short rest enjoy a guided tour to discover the hidden charms of Vientiane, whose name means ‘the city of sandal wood’. Your tour begins at the serene Wat Sisaket, the only temple left intact after the Siamese (Thai) invasion in 1828. It is one of the most beautiful temples in the capital, and its breezy teak covered hallways are filled with thousands of miniature Buddha statues.
    Continue on to the nearby Wat Phra Keo. Used as a religious museum, Wat Phra Keo displays a collection of both Lao and Khmer works of art. Also nearby, is the Presidential Palace. Although you are not allowed to visit inside, it is a good glimpse in to the town’s colonial past as this building formerly served as the French governor’s palace. Then, continue your tour with a visit to the Patuxay monument, Laos’ version of the Arc de Triomphe, where you can climb the stairs to the roof for sweeping panoramic views of the city.

    Next, your tour takes you to That Luang, the holiest site in Laos. Constructed by King Setthethirat in the 16th century, the temple is resplendent as the sun is shines upon its towering golden spire. Enjoy the sunset by Mekong Riverside and spend the evening here absorbing the city’s nightlife.
    Stay overnight in Vientiane.


     

    DAY 2: VIENTIANE - NAM NGUM LAKE (B)

    On arrival at Nam Ngum Lake, embark on a long tail boat visiting fishing villages in the various islets. Then take a short walk to explore the lifestyle of the local fishermen.

    On the way back to the town, [if time permits] perhaps you might want to experience gambling at the legal Lao casino located in the valley where you can also enjoy a beautiful view of the lake. Return to your hotel by late afternoon. Everning at leisure.

    Stay overnight in Vientiane.
