This is a shop/information centre that has locally made in Laos souveniers, which help local villagers & villages. A great place to buy something truly authentic

We went here so that the driver could get his car permit registered for the trip. The displays are poor. The items on sale just stuffed in cabinets. Did not see any prices or sales person around. Would not visit again.

My guide took me here at the start of a tour. UXE in the back yard was interesting. Exhibits inside were pretty lame. Staff required visitors to fill out a personal questionnaire. Skip this place if you have other stops. Lots of room for improvement.

This information office does not provide much in the way of information, maps or guides. There is very little to do in phonsavan apart from the jars. So drop in here to fill 15 mins.

Not a lot to see, but an essential stop when visiting Phonsavan, to pick up maps and information. Also has reasonably-priced souvenirs and a lot of bombs on display behind the building.
