Patuxai, Vientiane, Laos

Patuxay, Vientiane, Laos

 

Patuxai or “The Victory Gate” is the Laos version of an Arch of Triumph. It is located in Vientiane on Lan Xang Avenue and it was built with funds that the USA gave to Laos to build a new airport. The Government decided this monument was much more necessary.
