AND BUDDHA PARK
Vientiane and Buddha Park tour is a short itinerary ideal for those who are passing through Vientiane and have a only few days available. However it can also be considered as a starting point of your trip to Laos and can be combined with other tailored made routes.
In addition to the main attractions of the capital such as Wat Sisaket, Wat Ho Prakeo, That Luang Stupa and Patuxai, is included the visit to Wat Xieng Khouan, also known as Buddha Park, the park that artistically combines Buddhist and Hindu iconography through the numerous images representative of the religions.
To enrich the travel experience, we added an excursion to Nam Ngum Lake, the large reservoir created by the dam on the Nam Ngum River, which allows us to visit local villages and learn about their lifestyle.
The itinerary is developed from/to Vientiane. However can be further customised to suit your travel and budget needs, and it can be combined with other routes.
