Itineraries

Day 1: Arrival in Vientiane - City Tour

On arrival at the airport, you will be met and transferred to check in the hotel.

After a soft rest, start your “4-day Laos Classic Tour” with the visit to the major sights of the capital; including the oldest Wat Sisaket, the temple with thousands of miniature Buddha statues and the former royal temple of Wat Prakeo, which previously housed the famous Emerald Buddha Image. On the way to Lao’s national icon, the famous and sacred structure of That Luang Stupa, we stop enroute to take some pictures of the imposing Patuxay Monument, which is well known as Vientiane’s own Arc de Triumph.
End your tour of the capital along the banks of the Mekong River as the sun begins to set. Stroll along the river, stop to enjoy a cold drink, or sample a snack from one of the many local food stalls.
The welcome dinner will be served at the local restaurant with the traditional dance and folk song, the best chance to experience the local culture. Overnight in Vientiane

Meals: D

Accommodation: Hotel

Day 2: Explore Buddha Park - Take Flight to Luang Prabang

In the morning, we will first visit Wat Si Muang, which is very famous for its supernatural power. After that drive to Buddha Park which takes around 45 minutes away. On the way, stop and take photos of the Friendship Bridge which was built by the Australian government in 1994 and links Laos and Thailand.
Arrive at Buddha Park and enjoy a stroll around the park.  Also known as Xieng Khuan, this unusual park is filled with over 200 Buddhist and Hindu statues. The quiet and tranquil setting along the Mekong River is a contrast to the slightly eccentric sculptures which were built in 1958 by a Laos’s shaman. The concrete sculptures are bizarre but intriguing, sitting majestically in the peaceful park.
After visiting Buddha Park, start the drive back to Vientiane. En route, stop at Mai Savanh to explore the traditional textiles of the Lao people. This shop specializes in high quality silk products and involves several families in their process, from the northern province of Luang Nam Tha Province and the southern provinces of Attapeu and Sekong. (Note: Mai Savanh is closed on Saturday & Sunday)
In the afternoon, visit COPE, an association working to help landmine victims. A visit to the center provides in-depth information about the history of the American/Vietnam war and the lasting impact of unexploded ordinances (UXO) in the area and the efforts underway to clear them.
We then transfer out to take the flight to Luang Prabang. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel. Overnight in Luang Prabang

Day 3: Cruise the Mekong to Pak Ou Caves - Refresh at Kuang Si Waterfalls

In the morning, we embark on a cruise upstream on the Mekong River, which also gives us a breathtaking view of the tranquil countryside, before reaching the mysterious Pak Ou Caves, a 16th century cave monastery filled with thousands of Buddha images, which locates 25 Kilometers North of Luang Prabang in the limestone cliffs overlooking the Mekong river.

In the afternoon, we will drive south to Kuang Si waterfalls, which is the biggest in the Luang Prabang area with three tiers leading to a 50-metre drop into spectacular azure pools before flowing downstream. The pools also make great swimming holes and are very popular with both tourists and locals
We will also take a short visit to the Bear Rescue Center, which houses a couple of dozen animals rescued from the hands of poachers and traffickers.
On the way back to Luang Prabang, we will take a short visit to the Ock Pop Tock Living Craft Center, set serenely close to the Mekong, this beautiful, traditionally styled workshop, where weavers, spinners and batik makers produce top-quality fabrics, offers free tours every half-hour. This is also one of the best spots to admire the sunset in Luang Prabang
Transfer back to your hotel late afternoon. Overnight in Luang Prabang

Meals: B, L

Accommodation: Hotel

Day 4: Morning Alms Giving - City Tour - Departure

Wake up as the sun rises, we will prepare to join the most sacred tradition of Laos, the daily morning alms giving, which dates to the 14th century. More than 200 Buddhist monks depart from various temple to gather their daily meal from the faithful residents sitting quietly on the streets.

From there, we will visit the temporary morning market near the former Royal Palace. Just set on the ground, the local people come here to barter their day’s catch from rice, to vegetable, to fish, or chicken. This is the best way to experience the taste of local life

After breakfast, we climb up to the top of Mount Phousi for an enjoyable exploration of the sacred, gilded stupa as well as a panoramic sunset view of the city and the Mekong River. From there, you will visit Royal Palace Museum, which was built in 1904 during the French colonial era for King Sisavang Vong and his family.

Your city tour continues with a visit to the magnificent Wat Xiengthong, a superb piece of Lao temple architecture, which presents a sweeping two-tiered roof and ornate mosaics including a beautiful ‘tree of life ‘glass montage on the rear temple wall.

If time permits, we will take a short walk around the small streets of city center, watching the life of local people.

We then transfer out to the airport to take the departure flight finishing your “4-day Laos Best Tour”

Private tour of Bangkok

Our guide was waiting for us as we got off the cruise ship. On the way to Bangkok he explained some of the history and geography of the region. He took us around the sights and was extremely informative. Excellent guide and driver. Much cheaper than the cruise organised your and treated as individuals rather than members of coach party. Lunch was also excellent as was the organisation, booking process etc. Highly recommended.

Fun Tours; Very Good Service

From our first inquiry up to the tours, we were assisted very well. We were a group of 8 adults and 2 toddlers so I was looking for a tour in Bangkok which I could customize according to our preferences and would be flexible enough for the children. Tookta handled my inquiry and reservation. Her responses were timely. After doing some research I gave her a list of places and activities we wanted to do in Bangkok. And voila, she replied with an itinerary that perfectly fitted our preference. Down payment was also hassle free. We were assigned with Kate. She speaks English well and was very patient especially when we were running late because of the kids. She even interacted and sang with them. Being able to speak in English well also allowed her to help us in communicating with the locals.

Ideal wenn die Zeit knapp ist

Wir haben eine 2 Tagestour gebucht von Bangkok nach Chiang Mai, da wir nur noch wenig Zeit hatten und wir nicht auf die wunderschöne Sehenswürdigkeit zwischen den zwei Metropolen verichten wollten. Die Tour war sehr professionel organisiert. Wir konnten unsere eigene Wünsche einbringen. Die Restaurant auf dem Weg waren auch sehr gut ausgewählt. Kann es nur empfehlen.
