About
Enjoy a half-day guided tour to discover the hidden charms of Vientiane meaning the "city of sandal wood". Vientiane is one of the quietest capital cities in the world, far away from the bustle and hustle of other Asian capitals. Visit some of the most popular attractions including the Wat Sisake, Wat Phra Ke, Presidential Palace and more.

What to expect
  • You will be picked up at your hotel in Vientiane at 9:00 am for morning departure or 2:00 pm for afternoon departure and begins at the serene Wat Sisaket, the only temple left intact after the Siamese (Thai) invasion in 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. Continue on to the nearby Wat Phra Keo. Used as a religious museum, Wat Phra Keo displays a collection of both Lao and Khmer works of art. Also nearby is the Presidential Palace. Although you are not allowed to visit inside, it is a good glimpse in to the town’s colonial past as this building formerly served as the French governor’s palace. Visit COPE, an association working to help landmine victims. A visit to the center provides in-depth information about the history of the American/Vietnam war and the lasting impact of unexplored ordinances (UXO) in the area and the efforts underway to clear them. Continue to the Patuxay monument, 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 is shines upon its towering golden spire. End your tour of the capital along the banks of the Mekong River. Stroll along the river, stop to enjoy a cold drink, or sample a snack from one of the many local food stalls. When the tour ends, you will be transferred back to your hotel.

The tour guide was friendly, very knowledgeable and the sites were interesting. My one issue is that it is billed as a half-day tour but our tour lasted for 2 and a half hours only. It was therefore expensive for what we got. Having said that we enjoyed the tour.

I was fortunate enough to be the only person on the tour, which meant it went at a pace that suited me perfectly! The choice of interesting and beautiful sites to visit was great, the guide was informative and I learned a great deal about the history of the city and the country.
