“A must see to fully understand Laos”

UXO Lao Visitors Centre
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Laos has a horrifying recent history, taking the unwanted position as the most bombed country ever. Unexploded ordnance presents a constant danger to Laotians in many parts of the country. UXO Lao is engaged in education and the ongoing task of clearing the estimated 80m unexploded bombs that remain in the country. This small exhibition centre provides an insight into UXO Laos' work, including the human impact of unexploded ordnance. A humbling experience. I'd recommend a visit.

From the old town centre you can go there via tuktuk for about 10.000kip, the entrance is admission free. Its a small but professional made exhibition including a small film presentation. The staff was helpfull and the topic they focus on is still a hot topic in Laos... woth going there for about an hour of visiting!

If you only see one place in town then it should be this. It's only a small place but the video they show at the end is excellent.

This is a great learning opportunity. Well presented. A little hard to find bit essentially behind a park about 15 minute walk from the tourist info office. Map inside.

My husband andI and our friends went to UXO and spent about an hour there. Apart from the informative display there a three short movie clips to watch which help get the message across about how they are involved in the mammoth task of cleaning up the UXOs after the Americans bombed the blazes out of Laos over a 9 year period.
