That Dam

The black stupa

Photo of That Dam, , Vientiane

What we say: 2.5 stars

Legend has it that That Dam was home to a seven-headed dragon with the power to protect Vientiane from invaders; perhaps its failure to do so is why this stupa receives no upkeep!

There's little to see here, but there are some charming cafes beside it. Free.
