Imposing building completed in 1986 is the official residence of the Lao president. French influenced Beaux-Arts architectural style that is characterized by formal design and elaborate ornamentation. You can peer in and see the columns, shaded balconies and the balustrades, but enter the wrought iron gates, you cannot. A shame really as it is an impressive building and similarly well groomed lawns and gardens...

Thankfully we had seen other reviews and knew we could not enter grounds let alone get it. Impressive building yes, but as an attraction only average as you can see very little

Like most government building I saw Laos is still a developing country. I didn't see one security on around the premises.

Just another palace with gate. No entry for tourist. It is decent building, nice to take photo, but yeah, it is what a palace should be and it is gated.
