Day 1 : Vientiane means The City Of The Moon. It is the capital of Laos and its largest city. It sits on the left bank of The Mekong River, in a sweeping bend.

After a short check in you will take a short sightseeing trip of the city, taking in some of its well-known historic sites. Wat Sisaket was built before the Siamese war of 1828 and is home to The Religious Museum. Its cloister contains 6,840 ceramic and silver statues of the Buddha. Wat Ho Prakeo used to house the Emerald Buddha. The Emerald Buddha is now in Bangkok and Wat Ho Prakeo now holds an important collection of Buddha statues. Pha That Luang is the name given to the impressive stupa. It is a symbol of the Lao Nation. It was built to cover an original smaller stupa, which it is claimed, holds a section of the breastbone of Buddha. The Arch of Triumph called Patouxy, was built between 1957 and 1968 and commemorates the nation’s war dead. It has become one of the most well-known landmarks of the city of Vientiane.
