Day 1: Arrival -Vientiane

Welcome to Vientiane, the capital of Laos, whose name means ‘the city of sandal wood’. Vientiane is one of the quietest capitals in the world, far away from the bustle and hustle of other Asian capitals. Upon your arrival, you will be met and welcomed by our local guide and transfer to your hotel for check in.

This afternoon, we will begin our exploring for the hidden charm of Vientiane. Our first visit is to the nearby serene Wat Sisaket, the only temple left intact after the Siamese (Thai) invasion in 1828. It is one of the most beautiful temples in Thatluang-escapethe capital, and its breezy teak covered hallways are filled with thousands of miniature Buddha statues, 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. We continue to Wat Simuang, the most popular and venerated temple in Vientiane, as it is considered the guardian of the spirit of the city. Upon its grounds, you will find an Angkorian-era pillar and it is a popular belief that if you circle it three times and make a wish, then that wish will come true. Then, we continue to the 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. Next, your tour takes you to 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. End your tour of the capital along the banks of the Mekong River as the sun begins to set. Stroll along the river, stop to enjoy a cold drink, or sample a snack from one of the many local food stalls.

Day 2:  Vientiane- Phou Khao Kway- Vientiane (B;L;)

After early breakfast at your hotel (Breakfast at around 6:00- 7:00) your guide will pick you up at your hotel and depart from Vientiane early in the morning for a 1.5 hour drive to your starting point. The Orchids Trek will lead you throughTreaking-escape Phou Khao Kway national park. The terrain is filled with waterfalls, rugged mountains, gorges, and sandstone cliffs. The park is home to more than 50% of the wild orchid species of Laos and a variety of different plants. Likewise, Phou Khao Kway is home to a diverse animal population, including wild elephants. Start walking from Pha Xay where you will enjoy a beautiful view of the waterfalls. Trek through the varied landscape of bamboo forests, evergreen forests, rainforest, and open air fields immersing yourself in the park’s nat

ural beauty. Of course along your way you will see some orchids and spot indigenous wildlife. Your guide will know the best spots for wild orchid growth and if you are fortunate enough to spot many plants, you will be amazed at the vibrant colors and shapes of these elusive flowers. Stop for a picnic lunch alongside a river bank. Soak in the tranquility of the area and keep an eye out for the beautiful butterfly species that flutter about.

Day 3:  Vientiane – Buddha Park - Departure (B)

After breakfast, we will drive to Buddha Park takes around 45 minutes, along a road which serves as an important link between the Lao capital and Thailand. On the way, stop and take photos of the Friendship Bridge which was built by the Australian government in 1994 and links Laos and Thailand.

Buddha Park-Vientiane

Arrive at Buddha Park and enjoy a stroll around the park.  Also known as Xieng Khuan, this unusual park is f

illed with over 200 Buddhist and Hindu statues.   The quiet and tranquil setting along the Mekong River is a contrast to the slightly eccentric sculptures which were built in 1958 by a Laos shaman.  The concrete sculptures are bizarre but intriguing, sitting majestic

ally in the peaceful park.

 After visiting Buddha Park, start the drive back to Vientiane. En route, stop at Mai Savanh to explore the traditional textiles of the Lao people. This shop specializes in high quality silk products and involves several families in their process, from the northern province of Luang Nam Tha Province and the southern provinces of Attapeu and Sekong.  (Note: Mai Savanh is closed on Saturday & Sunday).

Transfer to Wattay International Airport / Lao-Thai Friendship Bridge for your onward trip to your next destination.
