Tours highlight :
This delightfully friendly capital, studded with crumbling French mansions, bougainvillea-blooming streets and steaming noodle stalls, is somewhere between a big town and a diminutive city; the kind of place you might find a Graham Greene protagonist. Its conveniently compact travellers’ enclave is based around Nam Phu, the Mekong riverside and Setthariat and Samsenthai streets. Full of things to see, from Buddha Park to the Morning market and an impossibly rich selection of international cuisine – most pointedly French – you’ll find yourself slowly won over by the easy charms of this evolving backwater. The city may reveal its beauty less readily than Luang Prabang, but spend a few days visiting its unusual sights, sampling its excellent food and enjoying a Beer Lao at sunset by the river, and you’ll soon feel at home here.
+ Nam Ngum Lake
Nam Ngum, an artificial lake 85km from Vientiane is a beautiful day trip. Some 300 km2 of forest have been flooded with hundreds of small islands which can be reached by restaurant boats, which are exactly what they sound like.
There are also plenty of restaurants serving excellent food along the lake for those who wish to remain on dry land! Get there by bus from downtown to Thalat Village and from there grab a tuk-tuk or truck for the remaining 5km of the journey. Ban Pako, an eco tourist site some 50km from Vientiane is an ideal getaway for those who enjoy nature and wilderness. Go canoeing, rafting, or trekking. You can also spend the night there in a bungalow or a Lao style house.

Day 1.Arrival –Vientiane
|Day 2.Vientiane – Nam Ngum Lake (B/…/…) |
After breakfast, we take our excursion out of the city. We make our way to Nam Ngum, a huge reservoir created by damming the Nam Ngum River, stopping over at Ban Keun, which is famous for its salt extraction plant and a village of local Lao rice wine whiskey distillation. On arrival at the lake, we embark on a long tail boat visiting fisherman villages in varied islets. We visit some beautiful islets and take a short walk to explore the lifestyle of the local fishermen. On return, [if time permits], perhaps you might experience gambling at legal Lao casino located in the valley where you can enjoy an ideal landscape for anyone seeking for an overview of lake when the heat becomes unbearable in city. We return to Vientiane by late evening.
