We all 'enjoyed' our visit to the COPE center. The kids found it really interesting and watched all the videos. For us, a highlight in Vietiane.

As a traveler it's easy to just enjoy what a country and it's people has to offer you, without sparing too many thougths on their history and current dilemmas. A place like COPE reminds you about the injustice of the American Secret War and the...More

This small museum documents the results of the "secret war" in Laos and the continuing response. Emotionally moving.

It's worth to visit & there is no entrance fee. You can purchase any things from there and all the funds will go to charity.

Easy to find in Vientiane. Very hard to learn about the bombs in the country and the on going destruction wrought by them but very educational. Shows the good work they are doing with prostheses in Laos. It takes about an hour or slightly less...More

This was really interesting. I had no idea that Laos had been so heavily impacted by unexplored bombs during the Vietnam War. The statistics of injured & killed Laos victims is very high and so many areas yet to be cleared. COPE is doing a...More

Sorry I didn't get back sooner but the wifi the past couple of weeks hasn't been great. I see you have the information now and hope you get to visit the centre. You can walk to the centre if you don't want to take a Tuk Tuk... More
