Browse Our Vientiane Tours

Vientiane is among the smallest — and quite possibly the most laid-back — of the world’s capital cities. While the colorful frenzy of its morning markets and stately architecture attest to its role as the country’s capital, the pace of life in Vientiane is more reminiscent of a large village. Here you can appreciate the details: melt into its lulling bougainvillea-lined streets, sip delicious local coffees in sidewalk cafes, take in the slow sunset over the Mekong riverbank. A tailormade Vientiane tour will introduce you to the treasures of this serene city. Vientiane’s beauty is subtle, but also sublime — the intricacy of Buddhist relics in city shrines, the surprising tastes of local delicacies served in candle-lit, crumbling colonial patios, and the easy smiles of the Vientianese as they go about their tranquil days.

Absolutely! Wai Lin was amazing and helped me build my personalized itinerary from scratch with all the activities that I was most interested in. We worked together through the “What’s App” app. He was very responsive and readily available, energetic, supportive, and became a good friend in the process! I would highly recommend Backyard Travel to anyone looking to customize their own itinerary while having all hotels, guides, and transportation coordinated for them. Wai Lin was especially a pleasure to work with and was able to offer suggestions and advice while also being very open to my feedback and preferences. What an awesome trip it was!

The guide and the driver came to our hotel on time. We learnt a lot from them, including the history & the culture etc.Although the trip to Kong Lor cave is a long journey, it is comfortable within the car with air-conditioned, drinking water supply and our funny & joyful guide.

For what we received we were very disappointed with the cost. Yes, we visited what was listed but there were hiccups. Like, having to ask why we did not go to Plain of Jars 3 and then a hastily bit of organisation to actually go there later that afternoon. The reason – guide thought we were not interested. It was the best “Jars” site. That is what we wanted to see!! Lunch meals were very very average considering the amount of money the whole trip cost. Surely a cold soft drink and / or a beer could be offered as well, it wasn’t. There were also 2 other slight changes made to the itinerary to their benefit not ours.To end the trip, the guide said 4 times about arriving early in Vientiane – the reason, so he and the driver could get back home earlier than late. The trip should be about the customer not others. One hotel we stayed in for 2 nights was about 2km out of town. We wanted to have a look around but this distance proved prohibitive. While water was offered generously it was always hot and hence not drinkable for us. The 10 seater van was squashy for legroom unless you were the guide and sat next to the driver!

Kai was a fantastic guide, with a great personality and lots of knowledge. The tour was well organised, and we were very well looked after throughout our stay. Kai went out of his way to make sure we had the best experience in Luang Prabang. The trip was tailored to our preferences, we traveled in style and were able to eat and stay at fantastic locations.

What’s Special aboutVientiane?

Backyard Travel’s tailored Vientiane tours help you truly understand the city as the political and economic heart of Laos. From museum tours and live music performances to visits to community restaurants and handicraft shops, delve into the complex forces that shape this city and country.



CHARACTER

Vientiane residents are no exception to the mild-mannered demeanor that characterizes the rest of Laos. Even in the heat of chaotic markets, expect courteous greetings, big smiles, and a sincere desire to make your time in Laos memorable.



CLIMATE

Vientiane is a great year-round destination. Despite its tropical climate and rainy seasons, the weather is OK, and rain is actually not too heavy. Winter is ideal temperature-wise, thus the peak travel season. Summers are sticky, meaning fewer tourists.



ENTERTAINMENT

Entertainment options in Vientiane range from traditional Lao opera and old Russian circus performances to trendy bars and French-infused jazz clubs. To get started like a local, head to the riverfront to meet up with friends and toast to the sunset.



CULTURE

The old French colonial capital, Vientiane exhibits an especially strong French heritage. But Vientiane is never afraid to put an exciting Lao twist on art and culture. Take a bite of a khao jee sandwich and you’ll understand.



LANGUAGE

Lao is the most widely spoken language in the city. Some city residents and migrants from other areas of the country speak local dialects. French lingers but is not prominent. English and Chinese are widely spoken in tourist destinations.



HISTORY

From ancient beginnings as a Khmer settlement, Vientiane has faced a series of invasions — from neighboring kingdoms and far-flung colonial powers — that has shaped its riveting history and multicultural heritage. Even a simple stroll along the waterfront reveals the past.

Meet our Laos Tour Specialists

Backyard Travel and the Laos team are committed to making your time in the Vientiane as worry-free and rewarding as possible. Our local travel specialists are here to plan your wondrous journey to this City of Sandalwood — a tailormade Vientiane holiday designed around your interests.
