Vientiane
Patouxai in Vientiane

Vientiane

Curving along the Mekong River, Laos' capital city has the peace and tranquility that never fails to offer a relaxing time to the visitor. All the weathered French villas, leafy streets, the curved roofs of ancient Buddhist temples above trees make Vientiane unique and charming that not many capital cities have.

Join Private Tour Vietnam with a tour to missile cluster-like That Luang Stupa,  the national symbol of Laos built by King Xay Setthathirath in 1566; Wat Si Saket, strongly Siamese influenced, containing thousands of tiny Buddha images in its walled cloister, and beautiful murals cover the walls of the ordination hall; the Haw Pha Kaew-a former temple of the Lao kings which now houses the country’s best collection of historical and religious artifacts: bronze and stone Buddha images in various styles and classic poses, some dating back over 1500 years, and other bronzes, stone and timber carvings of royalty and Buddhism; Patuxay monument, Laos L’Arc de Triompe, offering the panoramic view of Vientiane.

After getting lost in the culture and architecture of Laos, we stop at the riverfront to have cold beer enjoying sunset, the caressing breeze and the freshness of the calm Mekong River. If you like to take in the freshness of Vientiane's tranquil surrounding countryside, our river trips or biking trips are available at your request.
