Pick you up from your hotel at 8am, we depart for Wat Sisaket, among the oldest and most beautiful temples in Vientiane and still remains in its original form. It has been survived from the Siamese War of 1828 and its cloister contains more than 8000 Buddha statues.
Continue on to the nearby Wat Haw Phra Keo. Used as a religious museum, Wat Haw Phra Keo displays a collection of both Lao and Khmer works of art. It is a good glimpse into the city’s arts and culture.
After that, we transfer to Talat Sao, one of Vientiane’s most popular markets, made up from two stories of restaurants, fruit stands, vegetable vendors and jewellers. Here, you can find anything you want, from traditional crafts, Lao textiles, basketry as souvenirs, to high-end goods like electronics and jewellery.
Later, we will take you to the Buddha Park. It is a famous sculpture park with more than 200 religious statues including a huge 40m high reclining Buddha image. It was built in 1958 by Luang Pu Bunleua Sulilat, a monk who studied both Buddhism and Hinduism. This explains why his park is full not only of Buddha images but also of Hindu gods as well as demons and animals from both beliefs. However, this is more a place of modern sculpture than a religious site. Nowadays, it is actually a park where local people come to relax.
Back to Vientiane and end trip at 5.30pm.
