Top Things To Do In Vientiane

The quiet capital of Laos has many historic treasures as “the city of sandalwood” a Buddhist stupa. The city features old Buddhist temples, and a French touch is still visible from the old days. Vientiane offers a relaxing riverside break where you can enjoy a wonderful sunset over the Mekong.

Vat Sisaket is famous for not only its cloister wall storing thousands of tiny Buddha images but also its beautiful architecture and layout with history dated back to 1818.
 

Vat Phra Keo, built in 1565, is one of the most impressive and interesting temples in Vientiane. It previously housed the famous Emerald Buddha image.
 

Pha That Louang (built 1566 and reconstructed 1930) is the most important Laotian religious and national monument, respected by all Lao citizens as holy pagoda. The temple has a unique architecture reflecting Lao culture and identity, becoming a symbol of Lao nationalism.
 

Patuxay (the memorial monument) was built in 1957 and is the most prominent landmark in the city. The architecture of the monument was inspired by the architecture of the “Arc de Triomphe” in Paris and combined with typical Lao motifs. From the top of the monument, you can see an excellent panoramic view of the city.
