The arternoon is for the capital city of Vientiane. Particularly, you will visit :
Vat Sisaket – the largest and most beautiful temple in Vientiane which, inspired from the Siamese, presents its own unique architecture. Its old ‘Bangkok’ style has actually saved it from destruction.
Vat Phra Keo - erected in 1565 to commemorate the Emerald Buddha it holds. It was rebuilt exactly the same in 1942. The Buddha it shelters now stands under sloping, excellent carved wood panels.
Pha That Louang - a cloister guarding a big stupa, luckily saved when the Siamese raided this city. The Ho plunderers demaged it in 1873, but in 1930 it was restored by the French. It is officially the iconic image of the nation, representing both Lao’s sovereignty and Buddhism. This relic is really a masterpiece of Laotian architecture.
Patuxay - a monument built to remind the intense war against France. From its top we can see a panorama of Vientiane.
At the end of the afternoon, take a stroll along the Mekong River. Have your own discovery into the capital’s cuisine for dinner. Overnight at the hotel.
