Breakfast at your hotel.
Wake up early to join in one of the highlights of Laos, Alm Giving Ceremony in the morning. Tell your tour guide if you want to take part in, and he or she will prepare food for you. You also can buy it in the store on the vendor. Back to your hotel to enjoy breakfast.
Start today by visiting Wat Si Muang, which is very famous for its supernatural power. Takes around 45 minutes away to drive to Buddha Park. On the way, stop and take photos of the Friendship Bridge which was built by the Australian government in 1994 which links Laos and Thailand.
Arrive at Buddha Park, the tour guide with his / her giant knowledge will help you more understand about the story behind. The quiet and tranquil setting along the Mekong River is a contrast to the slightly eccentric sculptures which were built in 1958 by Laos’s shaman. The concrete sculptures are bizarre but intriguing, sitting majestically in the peaceful park.
After visiting Buddha Park, drive back to Vientiane. En-route, stop at Mai Savanh to explore the traditional textiles of the Lao people, which display the high-quality silk products that one of the most souvenirs you should buy when visiting Laos. (Note: Mai Savanh is closed on Saturday & Sunday).
Enjoy lunch at the local restaurant on the road.
In the afternoon, we will visit That Luang, the holiest site in Laos, which constructed by King Setthethirat in the 16th century, the temple is resplendent as the sun is shining upon its towering golden spire, and becomes the symbol of Laos.
Beside That Luang, enjoy a panoramic view over the city as you climb the stairs to the top of Patuxai, Vientiane’s own “Arc de Triomphe”.
Continue down Lane Xang Avenue the serene Wat Sisaket, the only temple left intact after the Siamese (Thai) invasion in 1828. Continue to the Vientiane city tour to visit Wat Phra Keo, which is known as a religious museum, Wat Phra Keo displays a collection of both Lao and Khmer works of art.
Overnight in Vientiane
