6 Days Green Season in Lao

Clients can join one of the Boun Bang Fai (Rocket Festival) celebrations to welcome the rain. Dates vary per location – always around May and June – but please contact our Laos office to find out which village celebrates at the time of your client’s visit. Homemade bamboo rockets are fired and lots of music and dance is going on. In the Northeast of Thailand, rocket festivals also take place. A visit to the 4000 islands (Si Phan Don) in the south of Laos, allows travelers to experience impressive waterfalls from July to October. At this time of year waterfalls are fuller and more impressive.

DAY 1

Half Day City Tour

Today guide and driver will be Pick up at the airport transfer to your hotel. Your half day city tour, begin with the oldest, Wat Sisaket with thousands of miniature Buddha statues and the former royal temple of Wat Prakeo, which previously housed the famous Emerald Buddha Image. En route to Lao’s national precious heritage, the famous and sacred structure of That Luang Stupa, you will have the opportunity to take some pictures of the imposing Patuxay Monument, which is well known as Vientiane’s own Arc de Triumph. The final visit of the day will be the excellent COPE exhibition centre, highlighting a much overlooked aspect of Laos and a major problem many of the local people face on a day to day basis in the form of unexplored ordnance as a result of heavy bombing campaigns during the Vietnam War area. A spectacular view of the Mekong River at sunset is a perfect way to finish the day. Read more
