Itinerary & Expenses for Vientiane, Laos Trip

I was only able to stay in Vientiane during my short stay in Laos. I wish I had more time, I will come back to visit Luang Prabang and Phonsavahn (hopefully) in the future.

Here is the itinerary and expenses during my short 3 days and 2 nights trip to the capital of Vientiane:

*8,050 kip = 1 USD

300,000 kip - Accommodation
186,000 kip - Food and water
27,000 kip - Postcards
55,000 kip - Souvenirs
70,000 kip - Transportation
50,000 kip - Airport transfer
3,000 kip  Entrance to go up the Patouxay
5,000 kip - Entrance for Si Saket
5,000 kip - Entrance for Ho Phra Keo
5,000 kip - Entrance for That Luang
300,000 kip - Check-in baggage                                 
1,006,000 kip - Total expenses for 3 days and 2 nights

Vientiane was a very laid back city with not a lot to do, but I liked it that way. The days were slow and the people just as relaxed. Vientiane was the last stop during my 10 days, 3 countries trip. I won't try doing this again because the flying to and from places in a short amount of time was just too tiring.

It was really cool that I got to hitchhike along with other fellow travelers when we all headed out of the airport. There was this nice expat (I assume) who gave us all a lift. There was me, three Malaysians, and two Russians. He immediately knew I was Filipino, which was cool.


Day 1
Ho Phra Keo
Si Saket
That Dam
Presidential Palace
Vientiane City Pillar Shrine
Wat Si Muang
Wat Mixay
Ong Teu Temple
Inpeng Temple
Sithan Neua Temple
Wat Chan Temple

Day 2
Pha That Luang

It is easy to walk to all of the places in day 1 of this list, but it takes quite a while to get to Patouxay and much longer to get to Pha That Luang if you walk. There are lots of restaurants along the Mekong River where you can eat.
