Arrival in Vientiane
On arrival in Vientiane, you’ll be transferred to your quirky modern hotel in the centre of Vientiane, with panoramic views over the rushing Mekong River. From the hotel, it’s just a short walk to the morning market and some of the best restaurants in town. Sitting by the river, Beer Lao in hand, it’s hard to believe that you’re in a capital city. You’ll notice French-style patisseries and bakeries sprinkled throughout the streets, so be sure to pick up a pain au chocolat.
Hungry Tuk-Tuk tour
Today you’ll explore Laotian cuisine by tuk-tuk! You’ll start by watching the making of and then tasting Kao Larm, the delicious traditional dessert of sticky rice and coconut roasted in bamboo tubes. Afterwards you’ll visit a local fresh food market to check out the amazing diversity of Lao food, and enjoy a traditional coffee. For lunch you’ll tuck into a traditional soup made with a fragrant broth and thick rice noodles. Next you’ll learn how to make a green papaya salad just the way you like it before sitting down and enjoying your lunch with the locals!

Vientiane – Cycling Tour
If you would like to explore the city on two wheels then join a guide and small group for this half day tour. Marvel at temples filled with Buddha statues, visit That Luang Stupa, the single most important monument in Laos as the national symbol, and contemplate at Patouxay, built in commemoration of those who died during the wars in Laos’ past. You will finish with a typical Laotian lunch, served at a local restaurant before returning to your hotel.
