We also visit the National Museum, containing rare religious and cultural artifacts. Grab your swim suit and travel a short distance from LuangPrabang to the Kuang Si Waterfall.

DAY 4

Vangvieng – Explorer to Cave

Today you drive to the famous Tham Jang Caves, once used by the local people as a hideout from Chinese invaders. They are considered sacred by the Lao people and popular largely due to the lagoon in the cave. The beautiful green-blue waters are perfect for a dip after the stiff climb. The main cave chamber contains a Thai bronze ¬reclining Buddha, and from here deeper galleries branch off into the mountain. To get there, travel on a scenic but unpaved road to the village of Ban Na Thong. From Ban Na Thong follow the signs towards the cliff and climb a steep 200m through scrub forest. There are some great viewing points along the way! Return to Vang Vieng in the afternoon, free time at your leisure. Overnight in Vangvieng Meals: breakfast, lunch Read more

Vangvieng –Viantiane

After breakfast, you leave for Vientiane approximately. Vientiane is the capital and largest city of Laos, on the banks of the Mekong River near the border with Thailand. It became the capital in 1563 due to fears of a Burmese invasion. It was the administrative capital during French rule and, due to economic growth in recent times, is now the economic center of Laos. Arrive in the afternoon, check in at your hotel and relax at your own. Optional (at additional surcharge) Suggested activities for the evening include; a stroll along the Mekong River, having a Lao beer while watching the sun go down, or visit the Night Market and taste some amazing street food.

It houses thousands of Buddha images from many countries, long lost architectural styles, sculptures and paintings. Wat Prakeo, the former royal temple of the Lao monarchy, originally built in 1565, is home to the Emerald Buddha image and Buddhist sculptures are displayed along the perimeter wall, including a 6th to 9th century Dvaravati-style stone Buddha and several standing and sitting Buddhas. En route to Lao’s national icon, That LuangStupa, stop at the Patuxay Monument, an irresistibly photogenic structure which is known as Vientiane’s Arc de Triomphe This afternoon, you see the Buddha Park, a scattered and enchanting collection of Buddhist and Hindu sculptures on the Mekong Riverside, close to the Friendship Bridge. There are approximately 200 religious images dating back over 500 years, which were created by a mysterious monk spreading his philosophy on life and his ideas about the universe. A spectacular view of over the Mekong River at sunset is a perfect way to finish the day. Overnight in Vientiane Meals: breakfast, lunch Read more
