Vientiane

Vientiane ©
The riverside capital of Laos, Vientiane still has a relatively small urban area and a laid-back, relaxed feel to it.
Vientiane is known for historic sites, parks, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in panoramic vistas at Patuxai, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wat Si Muang, stop by Mai Savanh Lao, and don't miss a visit to Phou Khoun Observation Site.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Vientiane trip maker site.

Barcelona, Spain to Vientiane is an approximately 20- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of flight, bus, and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Barcelona to Vientiane. Traveling from Barcelona in May, expect nights in Vientiane to be a bit warmer, around 29°C, while days are warmer, around 40°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sun) to allow time to drive to Vang Vieng.

Lying 150 km (93 mi) from Vientiane en route to Luang Prabang, and perched on the Song River, Vang Vieng attracts eco-tourists for the bizarre limestone hills surrounding the town.
Tham Loup & Tham Hoi Caves has been added to your itinerary. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Vang Vieng Elephant Sanctuary, Head underground at Tham Khan Cave, explore the activities along Tham Phu Kham Cave and Blue Lagoon, and relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour.

For maps, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, read Vang Vieng online holiday builder.

Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang ©
Designated a World Heritage Site in 1995, Luang Prabang sits at the meeting point of two rivers and offers numerous opportunities for sailing, climbing, and exploring scenic caves and waterfalls.
Change things up with a short trip to 100 Waterfalls in Nong Khiaw (about 52 minutes away). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Kuang Si Waterfall, take an in-depth tour of Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre, see the interesting displays at Royal Palace Museum, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Phousi.

To see photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Luang Prabang journey maker site.

You can drive from Vang Vieng to Luang Prabang in 4 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 41°C in May, and nighttime lows around 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
