This is part of any tour of Vientiane. It's unusual in its size and structure. Not my favourite religious monument in Laos but worth a look.

This big gilded monument has become a national landmark due to its long history. It is a symbolical construction in the shape of a square having a three-staged stupa in the middle said to contain some remnants of Lord Buddha. Obviously, it has become the center of a famous Buddhist pilgrimage where Thai as well as Lao worshippers gather to pray in a huge festival.

There's truly nothing like Pha That Luang in the world. It is stunning and even that doesn't truly do it justice. It's located a little bit away from the center of town but worth the journey. Be prepared to be floored!

For me my visit to the Pha That Luang was the greatest moment of my Vientianne Stayment . Only the entrance for the golden Stuppa was 4000 Kip , what is not too much and arround the stuppa , you can find some nice temples to pray and inside the temple left of the Stuppa you can find a wonderful golden Bhuddha inside. Further arround the temple there a still lots of beautiful constructions and seriously the value to visit and to take you time for sightseeing.For me a great attraction

We visited Pha That Luang by bicycle. The complex is outside the centre, and you have to cycle on some of the main roads to get there. There is very little traffic, so that is not really an issue.
The Stupa itself is nice, although the day that we were there you could not climb it, but could only walk around it. The Stupa is closed over lunch (12-1 PM)
I found it worth a visit because of the whole park and temple complex that is around it.
