The Presidential Palace of Vientiane

Vientiane Attractions

The elegant Presidential Palace of Vientiane dates back to 1973, serving as the royal residence of the Royal Lao government. Designed by local architect Khamphoung Phonekeo, the building was only completed and opened in 1986 due to the political change and takeover of Pathet Lao in 1975.

The Presidential Palace became the venue for government functions and ceremonies. While closed to the public, it usually attracts photographers with its imposing but elegant Beaux-Arts architecture, tall colonnades, shaded balconies, and wrought-iron gates.

You can even see lush gardens surrounding the French colonial structure. The Presidential Palace of Vientiane is best seen at night, when it’s illuminated with artificial lights – giving you an opportunity for night photography in the Lao capital.
