“Don't make a special trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

If you passing look through the gates at an impressive building. Now you have seen it move on as you can't go inside.

“Grand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

It is very grandiose and found at the end of Xane Luang. It would be lovely if they allow a tour on the palace ground. Nice architecture and beautifully maintained lawn if you peek through the gate.

“Interesting if you're walking passed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

It's a fun photo opportunity, and eveb though you can't go in it's still very beautiful on the outside. Don't go out of your way to go there, but if you're in the area you might as well!

“Mediocrity”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

You can't walk in or it's hard to understand how to do this. You can walk around, but there is a fence...

“Normal Lao Government Building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

I saw this built from the ground up and it just got bigger and bigger until it was completed. Its nice to look at from Patuxai and driving pass but you can't stop and walk in. The walls go around the whole complex which must of cost a lot. Its nice to tick it off the list of attractions in Vientiane.
