Continue the trip to visit Fort Carnot. It was built in 1900 following the acquisition of Laos into French Indochina in 1893. Observe the remains of French architecture during the war in Laos and get  panoramic view of the city from the French guarde tower.

How to get there: Houai Xay tuk-tuks are available for the short ride to Fort Carnot. For walkers, cyclers, and motorbike riders, head south on the main road, turn left onto the road across from the post office, and then turn right to the hilltop and aim for the telephone towers. It takes around five minutes from the main street to reach the site by tuk-tuk  or you can get  to it on foot in about 15 minutes.
