This water tower is the most distinguishable landmark in the Government Hill neighborhood. You can see it from downtown, standing well above any other surrounding structures. A little bit of insider trivia: the tower no longer supplies water but is used today as a radio tower.
This restaurant in Government Hill offers a mix of Lao, Thai, and Vietnamese cuisine — and delivers big on both flavor and portions. The signature dishes are the phở dishes, which come in huge bowls, and the Pad Thai, which is mild in heat and slightly sweet. You can also order from a delightful selection of curries and stir-fries.
