Pha That Luang in Vientiane.

There aren’t too many “sites” in Vientiane, but this monument and the surrounding Wats were quite impressive.

From wiki

Pha That Luang.

‘Great Stupa’) is a gold-covered large Buddhist stupa in the centre of Vientiane, Laos. Since its initial establishment, suggested to be in the 3rd century, the stupa has undergone several reconstructions as recently as the 1930s due to foreign invasions of the area. It is generally regarded as the most important national monument in Laos and a national symbol.
