    Worth visiting to see how Lao people used the weapons in those early days. It becomes interesting to see Brave soldiers fought the war with thses weapons.  more »

    I went not expecting much, but it was fun. Things don't know in Japan, such as photos of more of the history of the Lao People's army, the invasion of France. Now studying.

    Abroad in Laos, not much is known about wars waged by this country. So, go to the War Museum is very useful. Inside, the old armored vehicles, mainly the production of the Soviet Union. There is a lot of information about the war with Thailand. Very impressive paintings and sculptures of warriors.

    A interesting museum. A lot of artillery from the last 100 years of Laos military history. It is a quick trip, you can spend maybe an hour at most in here. It is a relief from the heat outside.

    Very interesting to learn about the hardships the country has gone through. The English footnotes are quite difficult to understand though.

    It's not the best museum you could hope to visit, none the less it's still worth a visit to see some of the other 'points of view'.

Where to stay in Vientiane

Pretty little Vientiane offers a good range of accommodations, with most either mid-range or upmarket hotels by national standards. Close to the riverfront sit the grandest of the bunch, with newly built high-rise hotels and boutiques set in old French colonial buildings. Move away from the water a little to find some standard, unassuming hotels, mixed in with a few more boutiques and high-rises overlooking the prettier plazas and along the main boulevards. For budget options, look at the guesthouses and hostels on the side streets around Rue Setthathilath, but make sure to reserve your room early to avoid disappointment.
