Things to Do in Vientiane

There several historic buildings and important temples worth visiting Vientiane, and these include:

  • Pha That Luang: Pha That Luang is Laos’s most important temple. The temple dates back hundreds, or possibly thousands of years, although the temple in its current form was built in the late 1560s. The main feature of the temple is its 44 metre tall gold covered central stupa, surrounded by small stupas.
  • Patuxai Monument: The Patuxai Monument is a large arch at the end of the main street in Vientiane, the Avenue Lane Xang. The arch was completed in 1968 and bears a resemblance to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. The construction and design were carried during the period immediately after Laos gaining independence from France.
  • Wat Si Sa Ket: Also located on the Avenue Lane Xang, the Wat Si Sa Ket is one of the oldest temples in Vientiane. An invading army from Siam destroyed most of the city in 1827, including nearly all of its temples. Wat Si Sa Ket, which survived, was built as the main temple for Laotian King Chao Anouvong who famously led a rebellion against control by neighbouring Siam. The temple has lots of points of interest, including the use of architectural styles from several different Asian countries.
