Presidential Palace, Vientiane

Inspirock Rating:
1/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
Visit the official home of the president of Laos at Presidential Palace, a structure founded in 1973 and built with grand Beaux-Arts architecture. Despite its grandeur, it did not actually become a royal residence until 1986 due to political changes and unrest. Nowadays, visitors can catch glimpses of the impressive colonnades, balconies, and gardens surrounding the palace. While you cannot actually enter the building, the attraction still makes a great stop for taking photos and admiring the elegant architecture from outside the tall iron fence.

  • Grand old lady and you can't help being impressed by here grandeure. Not opeb to the public and only used for government function. 
  • It would be nice to be able to see inside the presidential palace but the gates are locked and we only get to see the outside. 
  • They wouldn't let me go knock on the door, so didn't get to see inside ;-) It's location is probably within a short walk of where ever your hotel is - so, go and take a few photos!
