Champasak Palace, in Pakse was a former residence of the Prince of Champasak, Chao Boun Oum. It was built for the prince as a residence but he had to abandon it in 1974, before it was finished. The Royal Lao government was overthrown by the communist Pathet Lao party and the rest is history. After the revolution, the building was completed and served as a venue for the Communist party congresses and accommodation for visiting dignitaries. The Palace was then converted into a hotel in 1995.
