Champasak Palace

Champasak Palace


Pakse, Lao People's Democratic Republic (LA)
Champasak Palace, in Pakse, Laos, was a former residence of the Prince of Champasak, Chao Boun Oum. It was built for Prince Boun Oum, as a residence, but he had to abandon it in 1974, before it was finished as the Royal Lao government was overthrown by the communist Pathet Lao. After the revolution, the building was completed and served as a venue for the Communist party congresses and accommodation for visiting dignitaries. The Palace was then converted into a hotel in 1995 after a Thai company succeeded in its negotiations with the Lao government.
