Presidential Palace, Vientiane

(1/5 based on 170+ 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. Put Presidential Palace on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Vientiane itinerary maker.
