This stupa is the national monument of Laos. Pretty impressive both from the exterior and the interior. There’s a small market near the entrance that sell wares catered to tourists. If you are around the area, do check out the three other temples located just beside this stupa. They are free to enter and one of them house a number of nice paintings.

The size and scale of the stupa can only be appreciated by walking around it although you cannot get to close due to the highly sacred nature of the monument. The reclining Buddha next to but outside the stupa enclosure is also worth a look

I went to Pha That Luang when I was in Vientiane some time back. I loved its serenity and architecture. It was really beautiful, worth a visit when in Vientiane.

This is considering the most regarded of the temples in VTE. Its a bit disappointing as there really isn't much to see for the temple itself. However, it is important to see since you are in VTE

Not very impressive for a highly-acclaimed national treasure. Felt that the other two temples offerred more.
