Lao War Memorial
Erected in 1998, the Lao War Memorial, located on a hilltop, offers a picturesque view of the surrounding area. The Pathet Lao (Laotian communist) soldiers who died in the war have their names etched in stone.
Plain of Jars
The Plain of Jars is a peaceful but mysterious place, a vast open plain, dotted with odd giant stones, stretching to the distant mountains. Reminiscent of the fields of Naza Lines in Peru, the Plain of Jars piques our curiosity with the hint of ancient and esoteric human activity. European research in the 1930s found that the jars were used in prehistoric burial rituals and date back to the Iron Age of 500 B.C. The plain is a field day for photography enthusiasts.
Vietnamese War Memorial
Dedicated to the Vietnamese soldiers who fought and died in northeast Laos, the memorial was created as a gesture of solidarity between the two countries in the wake of the "American War."
