Explore the capital city of Laos in any mode you like, by foot, bicycle, tuk-tuk, or minivan. Vientiane is now rapidly transforming from ‘town’ into a full-fledged ‘city’ – obviously awakening from its legendary laid-back pace and regaining former glories as one of the ‘pearls’ of South-East Asia.
See the landmarks and highlights of Tad Luang with its Buddha relics, the Kaisone Phomvihane and Hor Pra Kheo museums, Wat Sisakhet and Wat Simuang, or Patuxai, the ‘vertical landing strip’. All have their very own story to tell! Embark on day tour to the Nam Ngum reservoir or the whimsical Buddha Park.
In the outskirts of Vientiane watch wild elephants at Ban Na, or discover the beautiful and diverse world of orchids in the Phou Khao Khouay National Protected Area.
Use Vientiane as hub for cross-country motorbike or cycling tours, enjoyable kayaking trips to Vang Vieng or cave expeditions.
Close collaboration with local villagers as full partners at all levels not only retains their ownership in tourism destinations but also brings them substantial financial benefits in return for conserving nature.
