Sightseeing in Vientiane takes on a different perspective when you view while travelling in a local tuk tuk.
Pick up at your hotel. Discover the "real" Vientiane by local transport. Board a tuk tuk (Max. 4 pax per tuk tuk) and you begin your sightseeing with a visit to the fresh market of Thong Khan Kham. The market is wildly colourful and an olfactory delight - amid baskets piled with rice, eggs, and tea, ducks, pigs and fish both alive and dead, are food stalls selling noodles, soup, and 'food to go' wrapped in banana leaves, existing cheek by jowl with sellers of jasmine, orchids, and marigolds - the latter being woven into garlands for temple offerings, continue to visit Wat Ong Teu, biggest bronze Buddha temple, visit Wat Inpeng, continue to visit Wat Simuang, the sacred pillar temple.
Lunch at Kua Lao Restaurant. Then, continue to visit the Talat Sao (Morning market) nearby to see the "modern" market with electronics, clothes and DVDs. Discover some rare jewels in Vientiane dating from the French Colonial era. Not many of these beautiful old houses are left. You will have the chance to catch a glimpse from outside. Visit Carol Cassidy's Lao Textile's workshop, where you will not only learn about unique traditional weaving art, but also see a colonial house from inside.
