this shows you the horror of the war and how the Cope centre helps the people and is slowly clearing the bombies. It brings a real meaning about this beautiful country and the big task ahead

Not a large place, but really worth to visit. You learn a lot about the history of Laos and also about te problems they still experience due to all bombs. Make sure you have enough time for your visit and you will be impressed!
