Tour Itinerary
A guided tour will take you to discover the charms of Vientiane, a quiet but endearing capital city. Our tour begins with Wat Sisaket, which was built in the Siamese style of Buddhist architecture, rather than the Lao style, and thus has a surrounding terrace and an ornate five-tiered roof. Wat Sisaket features a cloister wall with more than 2000 ceramic and silver Buddha images.

Next, we’ll visit Wat Phra Kaew, built between 1565 and 1556. Wat Phra Kaew was the former home of the Emerald Buddha, which now resides in Wat Phra Keaw in Bangkok. The temple has been destroyed several times. The current structure was rebuilt for the third time by the French in the 1920s.

We will move on to the famous sacred That Luang Stupa, a gold-covered Buddhist stupa initially established in the 3rd century. The That Luang Stupa is the most important national monument in Lao PDR and a national symbol. Then it’s on to the imposing Phatuxay Monument, “Victory Gate” or “Gate of Triumph” which is dedicated to those who fought in the struggle for independence from France.

Our journey will end with a visit to the Talat Sao (Morning Market), where you can find an abundance of locally made handicrafts.
