Prince Souphanouvong, a dashing, square-faced and moustachioed man who was known as a charming and intelligent conversationalist, was named President of the Laotian People's Democratic Republic after the Communist victory in Indochina in 1975. The huge statue is situated in a very nice park with seats and plenty of exotic flowers. Quite near to the XAO centre. Worth a trip to see this.
