From its sleepy tuk-tuk drivers to its affordable cafes and spas, this former French trading post is a fascinating destination. The capital city of Laos is eminently walkable and the historic old quarter beguiles with tree-lined boulevards, glittering temples, wandering Buddhist monks and dragon statues. Whether you spend time here reading a novel in an old fashioned bakery, shopping in silk shops or watching a fiery sunset over the Mekong River, you will have a great time on this short discovery tour.

Full Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Vientiane

On arrival at Vientiane airport you will be met for a private transfer to your city hotel where a friendly ‘meet and greet’ representative will be ready to help answer any questions you might have on how to get around, what to do, current local events, how much things cost, where to go for shopping and your favourite foods, as well as helping to arrange anything extra you may need. The rest of the day and evening is free for you to go out and explore on your own.

Accommodation: Standard Mandala Boutique Hotel

Day 2: Vientiane

After breakfast at the hotel meet your expert local guide in reception to discuss and choose from a selection of activities. Cultural and architecture visits include temple highlights, Patuxai Monument National Museum, the Lao People’s Army History Museum, or a monk blessing ceremony where you see morning alms-giving. Food ideas include a famous laap (spicy salad) meal and a visit to the Talat Sao market, Carol Cassidy house and weaving centre are highly recommended. Ten-pin bowling is a favourite with local youngsters and tonight you could join them.

Day 3: End of tour

Today your short but eventful visit to the fascinating city of Vientiane comes to an end. Possibly time for some more sightseeing or last minute shopping for souvenirs before you are picked up from your hotel and driven to the airport to catch an onward flight or begin your journey back home. This exciting stay in the Laos capital makes a great add on to any trip to south east Asia, during which you can visit Vietnam and Cambodia, and will leave you with lots of great memories.
