Another landmark of the city vandalised just for creating a tourist trap. It is not that I really liked the earlier Nam Phou circle, but the present one is a urban furuncle of bad taste and noise.

Namphou Circle is a place with fountain, which is the center of Vientiane. The zero meter milestone of Laos is found in this place. Around the circle, there are many restaurants and bars. I recommend you to visit there at night.

You should have seen what was here before they built this monstrosity. Lovely square with traditional Lao buildings - and now it's this tourist eyesore designed for people who really should stay at home if they want to actually come to this place.

This place is terrible. Tourist trap prices. Half hour after ordering they tell you your order is not available. Avoid, avoid, avoid!

Located in the centre of the city with a fountain. This is a busy intersection and is a drop-off point for most hotel shuttles. Restaurants and cafes surround the circle.

The area comes alive in the evening, once the lights and music comes on. Plenty of restaurants and bar with outdoor seating surround the fountain. Nice atmosphere after dusk.
