What To Expect

Vientiane
You will be picked up at your hotel in Vientiane in the morning to begin your private tour at the serene Wat Si Saket, the only temple left intact after the Siamese (Thai) invasion of 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.

• Admission Ticket Free

Wat Ho Phra Keo
Continue on to the nearby Wat Ho Phra Keo. As a religious museum, the temple displays a collection of both Lao and Khmer works of art. Also stop by the nearby Presidential Palace and appreciate the building from outside (going inside is not permitted). Get a good glimpse into the town’s colonial past as this building formerly served as the French governor’s palace. Visit Wat Si Muang, one of the most popular and venerated temples in Vientiane.

• Admission Ticket Free

Patuxai
Then move on to the Patuxai monument (Victory Gate), 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 shines upon its towering golden spire.



• Admission Ticket Free

Buddha Park
Take a stroll around the Buddha Park (Xieng Khuan), filled with more than 200 Buddhist and Hindu statues. The tranquil setting along the Mekong River is a contrast to the slightly eccentric sculptures built in 1958 by a Laos shaman. The concrete sculptures are unique and intriguing, sitting majestically in the peaceful park.

People of Laos are very Hospitable and Friendly. And it's really cheap price for anything. You should drop by if south east asia is your target for your upcoming Holiday. Give it a try people.

Our first time in Vientiane, and we were lucky to have a fantastic guide who's knowledgable and passionate about Laos. We visited the key sights in Vientiane; learnt of things we didnt know; and the many legends behind the different sculptures in Buddha Park. Well-organised tour, highly recommended!

Good 1 day tour of Vientiane area. Our guide Bon did a nice job. After this tour you have seen almost everything in the area, except for the newer temples throughout the city. Some are quite beautiful. Buddha Park is interesting, but smaller than expected. Lunch restaurant was a very nice, upscale place. Several excellent local dishes.

Good guide Tour in Vientiane

Long enough to see the highlights in Vientiane area. For the visit to the Buddha park good guide is required to get explanation of all the differant objects in this park
visit it, not much else to do in capital

a pretty concrete arch with access to top, extra steps to tip top. views of city are not spectacular. could not see the Mekong River. tourist shops inside. fairly run down and needs fresh paint.
