Savannakhet, officially named Kaysone Phomvihane and previously known as Khanthabouli (ຄັນທະບູລີ), is a city in western Laos and the capital of the Savannakhet Province. With a population of 120,000 (undated), it is the second-largest city in Laos, after Vientiane. The city is the birthplace of Kaysone Phomvihane, the first leader of Laos from independence in 1975 to 1992, and was named after him in 2005.

Another aspect of Phu Thai is its contact with the Katuic languages, a branch of the Austroasiatic languages.
