My wife and I ( active 65yr+ ) are to spend approx 6 days in this area prior to a Mekong River boat cruise later this year. We are interested in temples, parks, Markets, craft villages, farming activity and some sight seeing in the country side.
An suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have already short listed the TA site for Vientiane but they might need some expansion and diversity. Trips by tuk tuk, song theaws, hire car or local mini buses are doable. Over night trips out of the city are a possibility. Very flexible, just need some thoughts.
