  • Day 1 - Vientiane Arrival

    Your local guide will pick you up at the airport and take you to your hotel. From 1.30pm onward room is available. Take your time to rest for a while then begin your story of the capital city. Particularly, you will visit :

    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.

    You’re free for the evening time. Meals on your own. Overnight at the hotel.

    Rise up early for your morning flight to Pakse. Then we drive about 1 hour towards Bolovens plateau passing by Paksong.

This region used to be part of the Tchen-La kingdom in the Khmer nation. So it‘s easy to understand why Vat Phou Temple is an interesting architectural collection of pre-Angkorian times. The Shiva temple of Vat Phou leans against a holy mountain and is a pre-configuration of the mountain temples which you'll find now in Thailand and Cambodia.
