tour description

Pick up from your hotel by tuk tuk and transfer to Sao Sinh to collect your classic Laotian clothing. Start the tour at the local Morning Market and then travel by tuk tuk to Wat Xieng Thong one of the most beautiful and distinctive temples and a perfect spot for some memorable photographs. Afterwards, walk a short distance to the bamboo bridge (Nov-April) and learn how and why it is built each year. Drive a short distance to the National Museum, which used to be the Royal Palace (Haw Kham). It houses the Royal throne of the Lane Xang kingdom in its original splendour and many other religious treasures. After the museum, take another ride in the tuk tuk enjoying the sites on your way to visit Wat Visoun. This temple was constructed during the reign of King Visounarat around 1520. In 1942, it was turned into a Museum of Religious Arts, and houses collections of Buddha images and religious artefacts from the fourteenth century.

Finally, stop back at Sao Sinh to return the Laotian clothing. Return transfer to the hotel
