Attractions near the Best Western Vientiane Hotel
The other Arc de Triomphe
In the 1950s Laos received a large monetary donation, which was meant to help the country develop its airports. Instead, the money was spent on Patuxai, a replica of France’s iconic Arc de Triomphe, which has since garnered the nickname 'the vertical runway'.
Although work was never quite finished on this monument, visitors can still climb the stairs through the various levels to enjoy panoramic views over the city. On the lower floors and in the centre of the top floor are gift shops. The highest level is only accessible through stairs found inside one of these souvenir stores.
The culinary delights of Fountain Park
The centre of Vientiane is home to many local and international restaurants offering excellent cuisine, and some of the best can be found in Fountain Park. This area, which boasts a grand fountain that is beautifully illuminated at night, features a circle of eateries including Indian, French, Japanese and Italian restaurants, as well as a Scandinavian bakery.
People don’t just come here for the food. On most nights the guests of these eateries are entertained by local performers who sing a mix of sweet local ditties and covers of Western pop songs.
