Today's Activities: Wat Sisaket, Royal Temple of Wat Prakeo, That Luang Stupa, Morning Market, Lao National Museum, Hotel to airport Transfer (Vientiane), Airport Transfer (Luang Prabang), Mount Phousi
Meals: Breakfast, Chinese Lunch

- Wat Sisaket (1 hour): The temple was built between 1819 and 1824 by King Anou. According to tradition, this was where the Lao lords and nobles came to swear allegiance to the King. When the Siamese sacked Vientiane in 1828, they spared this temple, perhaps because it is built in a style similar to Thai temples. The French restored the temple in 1924, and again around 1930.
Although it is ostensibly a museum, Wat Sisaket is still a working monastery, with several monks and novices in residence.
- Royal Temple of Wat Prakeo (50 minutes): Situated next to the Presidential Palace, this temple was the temple of the former Lao Royal family. Formerly, the temple was the home of the emerald Buddha, that was taken back by the Thais in 1778 and now resides in Bangkok.
The emerald Buddha, firstly, resided at a city named Lampang in northern Thailand and was in territory of the Lanna Kingdom. In 1472, a King of the Lanna Kingdom named Tiloka Raja took the emerald Buddha to the capital of the Kingdom named Chiang Mai.
In 1552, a half booded King (Lanna and Lao) of the Lanna Kingdom named Jayajesthadhiraja (or Chaiya Chettha Thirat) was requested by the court of the Kingdom of Laos to come back to reign at Luang Phrabang. So, he brought the emerald Buddha with him to Luang Phrabang. In 1564, he again brought him to the new capital named Vientiane (Wiang Chan). Until the year 1779, the King of the Thonburi Kingdom named Taksin, came to Vientiane and took him back to Thailand but resided him in the new capital named Thonburi.
- That Luang Stupa (50 minutes): A symbol of Laos’s nationhood and the country's most sacred Buddhist monument, That Luang was built in the 16th century under the rule of King Setthathirat. A symbol of the main stupa appears on the country's national seal.
After being destroyed by the Thai invasion in the 19th century, the monument was later restored to its original design, with inclusion of many references to Lao culture and identity, hence its status as a symbol of the nation. Each level features different architectural designs with encoded Buddhist doctrine.
- Morning Market (20 minutes): Central market known as the ‘Morning Market’ which is a great place for browsing antiques, handmade textiles and gifts.
- Lao National Museum (40 minutes): This French colonial building, formerly a government office block, is now used to document the struggles and the eventual overthrowing of the French and the subsequent implementation of the communist structure. The Museum Revolution is a two-storey colonial mansion, separated into different sections; each relevant to the country's history. Departments include culture, archaeology, history and politics, with the latter two making up the majority of the display. This is an interesting way to get better acquainted with the history of Laos through the eyes of the country and visitors should keep in mind that the English translations are not that detailed but the photographs and displays are well put together and insightful all the same.
- Mount Phousi (50 minutes): The main hill in the city from which you have a good view of the whole area. It's not a very steep climb from the bottom and sunrise and sunset are the most sensible and rewarding times to go up. There is a near-panoramic view from the top.

Accommodations: New Daraphet hotel Villa Santi Hotel  Maison Souvannaphoum 

Day 3

Place & Transport: Luang Prabang
Today's Activities: Wat Xieng Thong, Pak Ou Caves, Wat Wisunarat (Wat Visoun)
Meals: Breakfast, Chinese Lunch

- Wat Xieng Thong (50 minutes): A masterpiece of Buddhist architecture from the 16th century, impressing visitors with its golden facades and mural paintings. The temple was used for the highest royal ceremonies and to temporarily house the bodies of deceased kings. Built in 1560, by King Setthathirat, Wat Xieng Thong remained in royal benefaction until 1975. Placed on the northern tip of Luang Prabang, the magnificent structure is fringed by the river.
- Pak Ou Caves: The famous "Buddha caves" are north of town on the Mekong and can be reached by road (approx 1 hr) or river boat (around 1.5 hrs). Alternatively, you can hire canoes and a guide for the day, which would allow you to view the beautiful scenery and visit the caves without throngs of other tourists. It's also possible to finish the trip at the 'whisky village' where the local Laolao (lao rice spirit) is made. There are two caves - one on the entry level and another - the upper caves - on top of the hill. A very steep climb, but worth the efforts. A candle or torch recommended to see the upper cave, as it is dark.
- Wat Wisunarat (Wat Visoun) (20 minutes): Built in 1513, this is the oldest temple in Luang Prabang. Originally built with wood the temple was remade with brick and stucco after it was set fire to by Black Haw riders in 1887. The sloping-style of the roof is a distinctive feature due to the fact that it is a not a common Laotian design trait. Inside the building is a stupa that was commissioned in 1503, complete with small Buddha images made from precious materials and sacred objects, many of which were stolen when the Haw invaded the temple.

Day 5

Place & Transport: Hanoi
Today's Activities: Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum, One pillar pagoda, The National Fine Arts Museum, Temple of Literature, Old Quarter
Meals: Breakfast, Chinese Lunch

- Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum (40 minutes): This is the final resting place of the great leader, enclosed in a glass sarcophagus. A fascinating place to ponder his life, as well as observe the reactions of the local people to his embalmed body. It was actually Ho Chi Minh's express wish to be cremated so this presents an extra frisson to the place. Very strict rules on dress and behavior apply and photography is forbidden. The mausoleum is closed for three months of the year, normally from September onwards.
- The National Fine Arts Museum: Located at 66 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, the museum began receiving visitors on June 24, 1966. One of Vietnam's comprehensive display of architectures, sculptures, drawings, and fine arts is housed at the museum. The museum also contains displays of the ethnic minority people in Vietnam. Stone ax blades, stone sculptures, statues and ornaments, Muong skirts, belts, and Tay Nguyen bronze rings are some of the few items on display
Visitors are able to see works of art dating to the stone and bronze ages. Stone rings, earings and necklaces are evidence of a civilization dating back 2,000 to 3,000 years. The bronze statues, drums, and ornaments on display bring the visitors closer to that part of history that is rich with tradition and culture.
- Temple of Literature (40 minutes): This ancient Confucian sanctuary is now considered one of Hanoi's finest historical sites. The temple is based on Confucius' birthplace at Qufu in the Chinese province of Shandong. It consists of five courtyards lined out in order, entrance to the first, via the impressive twin-tiered Văn Miếu gate, leads to three pathways that run the length of the complex.
- Old Quarter: At the beginning of the 20th century the city consisted of only about 36 streets, most of which are now part of the old quarter.
Packed with charming colonial architecture, Buddhist temples and pagodas, the Old Quarter, located near Hoan Kiem Lake in Hoan Kiem District, is Hanoi’s major commercial district. Its heart and soul is exposed in the ancient commercial streets which are named after their original businesses dating back about 1,000 years. Though most of the specialties (cotton, jewellery, herbs, and silk) have changed over time and have been replaced with a variety of modern-day commodities and services, visitors can still appreciate some of the original goods as well as get a feel of rich old Vietnamese customs.

- Ha Long Bay Cruise: Ha Long Bay consists of a dense cluster of over 3,000 limestone monolithic islands (although locals claim there are only 1,969 as this is the year of Ho Chi Minh's death).
Viewed from above, Ha Long Bay looks like an extremely vivid huge drawing, and sailing beneath the bay is like leisuring in between a huge valley on water. Ha Long bay is exactly a wonderfully skilful masterpiece of Nature that turns thousands of dumb soulless stone islands into fantastic sculptural and artistic works of various graceful shapes, both familiar and strange to human beings. Thousands of islands emerging in the fanciful waves look strong and magnificent but also mild and vivid. Amidst these islands tourists may feel as if they were astrayed in a petrified legendary world.

Meals: Breakfast, Chinese Lunch

- Perfume River: A boat trip along the romantic Perfume River carries us through a tranquil setting of gardens and lakes, where Hue’s best known religious sites are located: the Thien Mu Pagoda and the mausoleum of former emperor Minh Mang.
- Thien Mu Pagoda: According to legend, the people around this area used to see a vision of an old lady appearing on the hill where the pagoda now sits. Upon seeing people, she always said that someday a great leader would build a pagoda at this site to bring peace to the country. One day, when Lord Nguyen Hoang passed by this area, upon hearing the story, he ordered the construction of the pagoda in 1601. He named it Chua Thien Mu - Heavenly Lady Pagoda.
Overlooking the southwest bank of the Perfume River, the Pagoda has two sections. The front of the Pagoda can be accessed from the Perfume river and has the Phuoc Duyen tower which can be seen from many points in Hue. This area also houses the great bell which was cast in 1710. It also has the turtoise bearing a great stele carved in 1715.
The rear of the pagoda is the main hall where Buddha is enshrined. It is also an area where the monks of the temple live and practice Buddhism. The Pagoda was the center of Buddhism in central Vietnam. In 1963, in a defying act against the Diem regime, Thich Quang Duc burned himself in downtown Saigon. Today, the car that took him to Saigon is stored in the rear of Thien Mu Pagoda.
- The Imperial Citadel: Based on the ancient practice of geomancy, the Citadel was designed and planned around the natural elements in the area north of the Perfume River. The complex faces southeast, taking Mount Ngu Binh (Royal Screen Mount) as a natural screen. Two islets in the Perfume River, Ta Thanh Long (Left Green Dragon) and Huu Bach Ho (Right White Tiger) play the role of sentinels for the Citadel. The construction of the Citadel took place from 1805 to 1832.
The Citadel is a square enclosure with a circumference of 10,000 m, a height of 6.6 m and a thickness of about 21 cm. The center of the wall is packed with dirt while the outer shell is built with bricks. There are ten gates to access the Citadel each with a two story watch tower. The gates are named according to their direction of exit. The southeastern gate is also known as Thuong Tu gate, The Eastern gate is also called Cua Dong Ba etc...The Citadel was built to accommodate 24 bastions with over 400 canons.
- Minh Mang Royal Tomb: The height of the Nguyen Dynasty was reached during the reign of Emperor Minh Mang (1820-1840). His tomb was built 12km from Hue in four years (1840-1843). The king had the plans drawn and the location chosen by the royal advisor, the mandarin Le Van Duc. The king passed away as construction commenced. His successor, the Emperor Thieu Tri sought the completion of the project.
It took ten thousand soldiers and artisans to complete the project. The tomb consists of about 40 monuments of various sizes; all lie within an oval shaped wall with a circumference of 2000m. A walk of about 700m in length bisects the interior of the complex into two equal halves. Along it are the Salutation Court, Stele House, Sung An Temple, Minh Lau Pavilion, and the tomb itself being at the very back of the complex
- Hai Van Pass: Hai Van Pass is one of the most scenic hillside roads in Vietnam. When braving the steep winding roads of a paved mountain pass, you will have a chance to discover peace, quiet and history along the way...
On the north – south nation highway, Hai Van Pass is an impressive landscape. It is like a giant dragon, lying on Highway 1 on the border between Thua Thien-Hue Province and Danang City.This is the highest pass in Vietnam (500m above sea level). This rugged pass is the final secti

Hoi An symbol, the most popular remnant is the Japanese Covered Bridge (Chua Cau or Lai Vien Kieu), on the west end of Tran Phu Street. The bridge was constructed in the early 1600's by the Japanese community. Tourists should spend time on visiting Quan Cong Temple, Musium of Culture… Many ancient style - oriented architects come here to have a direct look into the ancient houses of the town, among which are Phung Hung House, just west of the Japanese Bridge, Quan Thang House, or Tan Ky House.

Meals: Breakfast, Chinese Lunch

- Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral: Situated right in the heart of Hochiminh City is the most famous landmark as well as core Cathedral of the city,
Notre-Dame Cathedral is a famous age-long cathedral in Southern Vietnam. It is a magnificient building located at the paris Square in Hochiminh City downtown, attracting not only Catholics but also most tourists for its neo-Romanesque style architecture and a sacred atmosphere
Established by French colonists, the cathedral was constructed between 1863 and 1880. It has two bell towers, reaching a height of over 58 meters (190 feet). Following the French conquest of Cochinchina and Saigon, the Roman Catholic Church established a community and religious services for French colonialists.
In 1962, the Vatican gave the cathedral the title Basilique.
- War Remnants Museum: The museum contains numerous artefacts, photographs and pictures documenting American war crimes. It comprises a series of eight themed rooms in several buildings, with period military equipment located within a walled yard. The military equipment include a UH-1 "Huey" helicopter, an F-5A fighter, a BLU-82 "Daisy Cutter" bomb, M48 Patton tank, and an A-1 attack bomber. One building reproduces the so-called tiger cages in which the South Vietnamese government housed political prisoners. Other exhibits include graphic photographs, accompanied by short copy in English, Vietnamese and Japanese, covering the effects of Agent Orange and other chemical defoliant sprays, the use of napalm and phosphorus bombs, and atrocities such as the My Lai massacre. Curiosities include a guillotine used by the French and the South Vietnamese to execute prisoners, last in 1960, and three jars of preserved human fetuses. Such artifacts and documents illustrate the killing of civilians, spreading of chemicals, torturing of prisoners and the effects of the war on the north. Planes, tanks, bombs and helicopters are also on display.

The ruins of the Roluos Groups were temples that were constructed when the ancient Khmers created their first settlement in the Angkor region. That ancient kingdom at Roluos is called Hariharalaya.
Roluos Group is about 13 kilometers east of Siem Reap. Take Route 6 for 13 km. The first group, comprising Preah Ko, Bakong and Prei Monti, is located south of Route 6. Look out for the turning in with a signpost. Lolei is on the north side of Route 6 about 400 meters farther on.

Accommodations: Angkor Star Tara Angkor Hotel Intercontinental Hotel 

Day 13

Place & Transport: Siem Reap
Today's Activities: Angkor Thom, Angkor Wat
Meals: Breakfast, Chinese Lunch, Chinese Dinner

- Angkor Thom: The dimensions of Angkor Thom is simply mind boggling. It is a square piece of walled up area measuring a massive 360 acres (9 sq km!) and surrounded by a gigantic moat. Each side of Angkor Thom is three kilometres long. The moat surrounding the outer wall is 100 metres wide. But what makes the first sight of Angkor Thom so awesome are the causeways.
There are five entrances into Angkor Thom, four in each cardinal direction, north, south, east and west, while the fifth, called the Victory Gate, leads eastwards from the Angkor Thom Royal Palace grounds. Each of these used to have a causeway leading towards it, but today only the south gate has water under it.
Angkor Thom is located to the northwest of Angkor Wat. By area, Angkor Thom is bigger than Angkor Wat; the difference is Angkor Thom consists of a collection of ancient ruins whereas Angkor Wat is one single massive building. Angkor Thom includes many temples, terraces, as well as the royal palace - of which what remains are the walls and the royal ponds - all within a perfectly square area, bounded by high walls, and punctuated by the five entrance gateways, called Gopuras. It is indeed, as its name imply, a great ancient city.
- Angkor Wat: There are few places anywhere on earth to match the splendour of Angkor Wat. The temple is one of the largest monuments to religion ever built and is truly one the wonders of the world. Believed to have been constructed as a temple and mausoleum for King Suryavarman II at the peak of the Khmer empire in the first half of the 12th century, Angkor Wat is probably the best-preserved of the Angkorean temples. As with other Angkorean temples and walled cities such as Angkor Thom, the central theme of Khmer architecture revolved around the idea of the temple-mountain. By the time building on Angkor Wat was begun early in the 12th century, this had been elaborated to a central tower surrounded by four smaller towers. The central monument represents the mythical Mount Meru, the holy mountain at the centre of the universe, which was home to the Hindu god Vishnu. The five towers symbolise Mount Meru's five peaks.
A rectangular wall measuring 1025 metres by 800 metres borders the inner edge of the moat. There is a gate in each side of the wall, but unusually for the mainly Hindu-influenced Angkorian temples, the main entrance faces west. This entrance is a richly decorated portico, 235 m wide with three gates. However, the temple's greatest sculptural treasure is its 2 km-long bas-reliefs around and walls of the outer gallery and the hundred figures of devatas and apsaras. This intricately carved gallery te

Day 14

Place & Transport: Siem Reap to Phnom Penh, Flight No. TBA
Today's Activities: Banteay Srei, , Banteay Kdei, Hotel to airport Transfer (Siem Reap)
Meals: Breakfast, Chinese Lunch

- Banteay Srei: Built during the second half of 10th Century during the reign of King Rajendravarman II (reigned 944-968) and King Jayavarman V (reigned 968-1001)
Banteay Srei is a small ancient Khmer ruin that has probably the most exquisite carvings in Angkor. The name Banteay Srei is a modern Khmer name meaning "Citadel of the Women". Most likely this is not its original name, but simply a loose translation of Banteay Srei. After Angkor Wat and Bayon, this is my third favourite temples, due mainly to its intricate decoration and the beautiful pinkish colour of the sandstone used for its construction.
- Banteay Kdei: Built in the middle of the 12th Century to beginning 13th Century by King Jayavarman VII (reigned 1181-1220)
is an ancient Angkor ruin located on the western shore of the man-made reservoir, Srah Srang. It was built as a Buddhist monastic complex by Jayavarman VII, the prolific ruler who constructed much of Angkor's temples. By the time Banteay Kdei was built, much of the good quality stones have been exhausted. Hence it was built mostly using low quality sandstone. Due to the poor quality of the material used, much of Banteay Kdei is today crumbling. And to make matters worse, the craftsmanship was also poor. I have to say that Jayavarman VII was big on quantity but not on quality.
Banteay Kdei is similar in style to Ta Prohm just a stone's throw away down the road. It is slightly smaller, less ornate (at least, judging from what remains to be seen) and less overtaken by nature. (Here, I have to mention that Ta Prohm appears overtaken by nature because the restorers deliberately kept it that way.) Typically visitors begin their tour of Banteay Kdei at the East Gopura near Srah Srang, and walk from east to west, across the compound, through the ruins, and out again, through to the gopura on the other side. That was how I did as well, on my visits to Banteay Kdei.
