We pick you up at your hotel and immediately begin our exploration of this an ancient city situated on a bend by the Mekong River. Being Laos’ largest and capital city, there is much to see and do. There are religious museums like Wat Sisaket, the oldest city temple, which survived the 1828 Siamese war. Its cloister contains more than 8000 Buddha statues. Wat Ho Prakeo is the former home-temple for the Emerald Buddha statue, and today it contains a collection of Buddha statues, antiques and artifacts found in and around Vientiane. That Luang Stupa is the single most important monument in Laos, as it is said to contain a piece of the Buddha’s chest bone. Patuxay (Lao Arc de Triomphe) was built in commemoration of those who died during past wars and today it is the city’s main landmark. During the tour, we will make sure to stop at all of these attractions, spending time learning more about Laos’ fascinating culture and history. We will also visit Mrs. Carol Cassidy’s weaving studio. She is an American who arrived in Vientiane in 1989 as part of a United Nations project to promote traditional weaving. She remained and formed the Lao Textiles Studio that today employs over 40 weavers, creating naturally dyed, woven silk pieces reflecting reinterpreted traditional Lao design.  Her textiles are seen at the NA DAO restaurant and mix tapestry, brocade and ikat techniques (meeting Carol is of course subject to her availability).
