8:30 Pick up at your hotel
We will visit Wat Sisaket, the oldest temple in the city. Built in 1818, Wat Sisaket is the sole survivor of the 1828 invasion and features remarkable frescoes and more than 10,000 Buddha images. Nearby stands Ho Prakeo, once the loyal temple of the Lao monarchy. Built in 1565, Ho Prakeo was converted into a museum in 1970 and contains some of the finest Buddha sculptures and artifacts in the country.
The main structure originally housed the famous Emerald Buddha, which now resides in Bangkok’s Wat Ho Prakeo. We continue our tour with a visit to Patouxay, Laos’s own “arc de Triumph,” constructed in 1962. Our next stop is the That-Luang Stupa, considered the national symbol of Laos and originally built in 1566 by King Sethtathirat. Its central structure is 45 meters tall and echoes the curving lines of an elongated lotus.
