If you only do one thing outside of visiting Wats and nice boutiques - this is it! Interesting and important to learn the history and the continuing struggle of Laos to clear more arable land from unexploded bombs. Like the 80 million cluster bombs! Ask...More

The movie is tragic. Many UXO here to see. Good information and displays. My brother-in-law died in the “Vietnam” war but was actually in Laos. Every American should visit, if only to leave a large donation

This Centre is a “must do” while in Laos. It is astonishing that we know so little about the atrocities committed in Laos due to cluster bombing and carpet bombing during the Vietnam war. The population still suffers from unexplored ordinance, children are maimed and...More

I never knew that Laos was the most "bombed" country in the world miles per miles. The agony of the affected Laotian living in the heavily bombed area during the Vietnam war is just indescribable with countless innocent people (many of the children) lost their...More

Rode a bike to UXO visitor center. Entrance is free. Learned much about UXO as Laos has the highest number of UXOs due to the US bombing during the Vietnam War. Watch the videos; highly educational including for children. Well worth the 1-2 hours of...More
