Day1: Vientiane arrival (D)
Upon arrival in Vientiane you will be transferred to your hotel. This afternoon there will be a tour of Vientiane. Although it is a capital city, Vientiane has the feel of a small provincial town. The wide boulevards are almost devoid of traffic and with its many temples, the city retains the feel of another age. Our tour includes visits to the major temples of Wat Sisaket, Wat Prakeo and the impressive That Luang Stupa, the country’s most important monument. We will also see the Arch of Triumph, the National Museum and the main market. In the evening, following the meal you can enjoy an evening stroll along the banks of the Mekong River.

Day2: Vientiane – Luang Prabang (B, L)
This morning we transfer to the airport for the short domestic flight to Luang Prabang.
We embark on a tour of this enthralling town visiting Wat Xieng Thong, the Golden City monastery. Dating back to the 16th century this splendid temple is considered to be the finest in Laos with its low sweeping roofs as well as a rare bronze reclining Buddha. We will also visit the fine temple of Wat Mai, Wat Vixoun and Wat That Luang. Later in the day we adjourn to the Phousi Holy Hill to enjoy the excellent views of the town and a great sunset
*Note: Flight Vientiane/ Luang Prabang/ Vientiane is not included in the package
Day3: Luang Prabang (B, L)
Today we take a trip to the Royal Palace Museum. The palace built in 1904 is relatively new by Luang Prabang standards and is a hybrid of traditional Lao and colonial French design. Originally the palace was constructed to house King Sisavang Vong but the French later commissioned the building. This helps to explain the mix of Lao and French architecture. Afterwards we visit the morning market and the weaving village Ban Phanom. This will be followed by an excursion by boat on the Mekong River to the holy caves of Pac Ou. The caves are crammed with gilded and wooden images of Buddha. Along the way we will have a picnic lunch before returning to Luang Prabang.
Day4: Luang Prabang – Vientiane (B)
This morning following breakfast there will be a transfer from the hotel to the airport for the flight back to Vientiane and your connecting flight out of Laos.
