Vientiane

Vientiane ©
The riverside capital of Laos, Vientiane still has a relatively small urban area and a laid-back, relaxed feel to it.
Kick off your visit on the 20th (Sat): enjoy breathtaking views from Patuxai, browse the eclectic array of goods at Morning Market, look for gifts at Mai Savanh Lao, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wat Si Saket, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Wat That Luang Neua, and finally make a trip to Great Sacred Stupa (Pha That Luang).

For traveler tips, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Vientiane attractions planner.

New Delhi, India to Vientiane is an approximately 9.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight, bus, and car; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1.5 hours traveling from New Delhi to Vientiane. While traveling from New Delhi, expect a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Vientiane, ranging from highs of 39°C to lows of 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel to 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.
Garden of Eden has been added to your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to MandaLao Elephant Conservation and 100 Waterfalls. Step off the beaten path and head to L'etranger Books and Tea and The Morning Market. There's much more to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Kuang Si Waterfall, take in the spiritual surroundings of Wat Mai Suwannaphumaham, admire the landmark architecture of Wat Xiengthong, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Phousi.

For ratings, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, read our Luang Prabang route planning website.
