Full description
Your guide will meet you at your hotel in Vientiane, before you go on an hour-long visit to Xieng Khuan Buddha Park, located just 15 miles (25 km) from the city.

Also known as Spirit City, the Park was created in the 1950s by Luang Pu Bunleua Sulilat, a shaman and priest. Today, the fanciful sculpture garden is a testament to his vision of a religious-themed park with more than 200 Hindu and Buddhist statues. Explore the park with your knowledgeable guide who will point out its top attractions, such as the 390-foot (119-meter) reclining Buddha. One of the Park's many statues is even interactive: you can walk into a demon’s mouth and climb your way from hell to heaven.

Leave the Park to head to Carol Cassidy’s Lao Textiles workshop, studio, and gallery. Learn how this American woman helped to revive Lao's traditional silk weaving industry. Meet the female artists in the center who receive masterful training and create exquisite designs that are often showcased around the world.
