Presidential Palace, Vientiane
The façade of the palace overlooks the Fa Ngum quay, alongside the Mekong. This imposing building was constructed between 1973 and 1986 on the site of King Anouvong's palace in a pompous mix of the Beaux-Arts style and traditional Asian architecture. It is not used as a residence, but is home to the government's legal offices and acts as the venue for major State receptions.
