UXO Lao Office in Saravanh Province, Laos

A 2-meter-tall, 3,000-pound bomb stands as a pillar to Salavan Province’s past at the entrance to the UXO Lao’s office compound, and presents just a hint of the defused unexploded ordinances (UXOs) on display inside. Two more large bombshells straddle the flagpole in front of the office’s front door, but even before stepping inside, there is plenty to see.

Racks of inert bombs, a mortar, cluster bomb (bombie) casings, and an airplane Gatling gun – relics of a bygone military era – line the front walls. Another row of even larger projectiles and other war relics flank the office along its left face, many so dated and bizarre, they hardly seem genuine.
Salavan was the second-most bombarded province in Laos after Xieng Khouang, and the painstaking job of finding and dismantling or destroying these live remnants still turns up UXOs in non-tourist areas.

Location: The UXO Lao Office is on the main road between the Tourist Information Center and the bus station.
