After breakfast, at 8:30 hours, we take a sightseeing tour of Vientiane visiting the religious temples. Our first port of call is Wat Sisaket, the oldest temple to have survived from the Siamese war of 1828. Its cloister contains more than 8000 Buddha statues. We then cycle to Ho Prakeo, the former home-temple of the Emerald Buddha statue or Pra Keo from the early time of Lane Xang Kingdom until 18th century. Today it contains a collection of Buddha statues, antiques and artefacts found in around Vientiane. We also visit That Luang Stupa, the single most important monument in Laos, which was built to cover the original small stupa containing a piece of the chest bone of Buddha. That Luang serves as the main and symbolic stupa in Laos. It's also our national symbol and recognizable throughout the world, a gathering place for national Buddhism ceremony. It's also the biggest stupa in Laos. Finally, we go to see Patousay (Arch of Triumph), built quite recently in commemoration of those who died during past wars. Today it is known as a land-mark of Vientiane. Lunch is served in a local restaurant.
After lunch return to the hotel and the afternoon and dinner is at leisure.
