Lao’s tallest tower opens

VIENTIANE (XINHUA) – Latsavong Wanda Vista Hotel, the tallest tower in Laos, has opened for business and will accommodate guests during Laos’ ASEAN chairmanship in 2024.

A grand opening ceremony in the capital Vientiane was held on Wednesday and attended by Prime Minister Sonexay Siphandone, local media reported yesterday.

Standing 138 metres high and having 36 floors, the hotel is the tallest tower in the country.

Speaking at the ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Defense Chansamone Chanyalath said the hotel was put into operation thanks to collaboration between the Lao Ministry of National Defense and Chinese real estate investors.

The hotel would provide jobs for Lao people, attract tourists and spur socio-economic development in Laos. In particular, it will serve delegates attending meetings and events during Laos’ ASEAN chairmanship in 2024, said Chansamone.
