Tips

  • Use upstairs! Perfect view!
  • Must visit when you come to Laos (Vientiane)
  • MUST VISIT: You can go upstairs for a great panoramic view of the city. Patuxai is almost similar to Paris' Arc de Triomphe and New Delhi's India Gate.
  • Laos' take on the Arc de Triomphe. Great views over the city from the top which runs 3,000 kip to climb. Come at dusk/night if you want to see the fountain running.
  • Beautiful place
  • ( Patuxay) .. LArc De Triomphe
  • The symbol of Laos with similar symbol of Paris
  • Beautiful monument. A must do!
  • Worth to go up, even though there's not much to see.
  • Great view from the top for only 3k. Strangely full of shops and in need of maintenance. Be careful of high walkways with no barriers and crumbling concrete underfoot.
  • Build in 1968 and also know as Victory Gate, it's a 7 floor historical monument (you can go up for a small donation) build to celebrate the indipendence from France.
  • One of the tourist attraction in Vientiane, buy the ticket and go up to the top, lots of souvenir shops, and good view point from the top.
  • Un arco del triunfo de arquitectura sudasiatica construido por EEUU . Recomendado subir a su mirador
  • Great historic site & beautiful scenic views
  • ~ . ~^^
  • The monument's own plaque basically apologizes for being an ugly "concrete monster", as it looks nice like the Arch du Triomphe from afar.
  • Go up for the view is only 3000kip. Worth it, though as a landmark its rather ugly and sad.
