Famous Attractions

Pha That Luang is a great sacred Buddha stupa in Vientiane. Located on a hill five kilometers north of downtown Vientiane, it was built between 1560 A.D. and 1566 A.D., under the reign of King Setthathirat on the ruins of a 13th century Khmer Temple. The copper statue of King Setthathirat sits outside the west gate. This breathtaking stupa is the most significant Buddhist monument and the national symbol. It is the most magnificent stupa all over the country, in which the ashes of kings of different dynasties and accomplished monks are preserved. Moreover, it is the center of Buddhists and the Holy Land in Laos. In November every year, the biggest religious That Luang Festival will be held here.

Patuxai is situated in the center of Vientiane and close to the Chancellery. Built from 1960 to 1969, it is a great monument for people who lost their lives in the struggle for independence. It resembles the Arch of Triumph in Paris in the distance, however, it is a typical Laotian architecture decorated with exquisite carvings of Buddhism. It also provides a beautiful panorama of the Vientiane. The Music Fountain Park around Patuxai is the aid construction by the Chinese government.

Mekong goes through Laos from north to south, covering a total of about 1,500 kilometers. A boat trip on this river is an enjoyable experience.

Morning Market is actually a three-storey grocery market open till evening. All kinds of goods are sold here, such as traditional clothes, handicraft, golden or silver ornaments.
