Appreciate it from a distance
What we say:
The classically-designed residence at the junction of Lane Xang Ave and Settathirath Rd is the Lao Presidential Palace.
The sprawling mansion with colonnaded balconies was originally built to house the colonial French governors, but now serves as a venue for government functions. It is not open to the public so, unless you're a visiting head-of-state, you're not getting any closer than the road.
