Patuxai or Patuxay, Vientiane's Arc de Triomphe, costs 3000 kip to go up for a decent view of the surrounding area. The structure itself, although probably requiring some finishing touches, is nice enough if you don't look too closely.

It's an another 30-minute walk to Pha That Luang, a giant golden Buddhist mound known as the most important national monument in Laos.
