Highlights of Vientiane
Vientiane is the capital of Laos. It has a population of 760,000 people. Here you will see a mixture of Buddhist buildings and statues intermingled with French colonial architecture. This city sits on the Mekong River, close to the Thai border. It became the capital in 1563 for fear of invasion by the Burmese. However in 1827 it was the Siamese (the Thais) who looted the city and burnt it down to the ground. With the capture of the city by the French in 1893, it rose to prominence as its commerce grew.
The most famous monument in Laos is Pha That Luang. A national symbol, it is also an icon of Buddhism in Laos. Furthermore other Buddhist notable temples include Wat Ong Teu, Wat Mixay and Ho Pra Keo.
Buddha Park is an interesting park to visit. Moreover you can freely wander around this sculpture park to view its many buddhist and hindu statues. Additionally there are many other landmarks. For example Patuxai is “the Victory Gate”. Built in 1962, it is dedicated to those who struggled for liberation against France. Other notable landmarks include Setthathirath, Chao Fa Ngum Statue and the Black Stupa . In addition see the King Anouvong Statue.
The Lao Textile Museum is a testament to its different tribes that inhabit the country. Bringing with them their own culture expressed in cloth. The Lao People’s Army Museum is just as interesting, It highlights what was happening in Laos during the American-Vietnamese War.
