  • A bit of a fail for us since we went to the fountain in daylight hours. The fountain was not fountaining and everythong was closed up. Go at night I reckon. -Zac.  more »
  • I visited this fountain during the daytime which was possibly a mistake as the fountain was not turned on and seemed to be surrounded by expensive modern restaurants and upmarket bars / cocktail loung...  more »
  • In the evening, a bit thanks to the beer, some colored lights can also be led to believe that it is a decent, in the morning light, when there is no cheats unfortunately is bleak, at this point the city deserves something better.

  • I think this place is a hot spot in Laos and when u visit at night u can enjoy dinner with love music. Expensive compared to other diners there. This place closes 23:30 like other places in Laos. Not so much night life.
  • Very bad service. The band that plays music is good but after some time all the songs are the same
  • Definitely a worthy dinner spot when the sun has set and the air is cool, they play music and have many food choices!
  • Beautiful landmark, beautiful. However, does not really fit in with the rest of Vientiane :-)
  • live music and beer lover are you? this place.

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.
