Fodor's Review

An ersatz Arc de Triomphe, the monument is a prominent landmark, if minor attraction, between the city center and Pha That Luang. A disarmingly candid plaque describes Patuxay as a "monster of concrete." Harsh, if perhaps true, but if you have some time to kill during the day, you can scale its seven stories for a decent photo op.
