Overview

Delve into the culture and heritage of Laos' capital on this half-day private tour of Vientiane. Accompanied by a local guide, visit the city's most prominent sights, learning about Vientiane's history and spiritual traditions.

Your first stop after getting picked up from your hotel is Vientiane's Wat Sisaket temple. Known for its cloister wall of over 6,800 Buddha statues, Wat Sisaket is the city's oldest surviving temple and is still in use as a religious site today. Head next to Wat Prakeo, which once served as the temple of the royal family, housed the Emerald Buddha for 200 years, and is now functional as a museum. Head to That Luang Stupa, the single most important monument in Laos, which was built to cover the original small stupa containing a piece of the chest bone of Buddha before diving further into the country's heritage by visiting the Patuxay monument, which is known as Vientiane's Arc de Triomphe and stands as a symbol of Laos' independence.
