Excellent attraction if you enjoy the history of the capital city. A chance to have a wonderful portrait taken by one of the freindly and excellent photographers. available on site. I have recommended to family friends and colleagues.

Patuxai is a very famous tourist spot in Vientiane. Located right at the centre of the road, this grand structure has a very beautiful garden all around it and a lovely fountain in front of it. You'll find a lot of locals as well as tourists at the spot.

The locals come here daily for a walk or jog around the park and sit right below or in front of the monument. There is a lot of space to relax here, so it serves as a good break from your day of touring around Vientiane. One cannot miss this place when in the city for a visit.

Big arch with great views and prettier than I expected. Is it a must do experience? I think you should. The ceiling was very pretty and the view is great.

This is pretty much the centre of the city. If you can make it to the top through the slightly precarious staircase, you would get to a nice view of the city from all sides. You don't need more than 15-20 minutes here as there is nothing else to do unless you wish to sit around the road and park below. There are stores on the way up to the top but really there is enough of what they sell available everywhere
