Buddha Park, Vientiane

(1,600+ reviews on the web)
Monument Nature / Park
Observe more than 200 sacred statues and a giant 40 meter (131 ft) high image of the reclining Buddha at Buddha Park. Built in 1958 by a monk who studied both Hinduism and Buddhism, the park represents a blend of two religions and all their artistic embodiments of deities, demons, and animals. As you stroll across the exotic compound, observe statues of a Hindu god-king riding a three-headed elephant, a deity with twelve faces and six hands, and a four-armed divine being riding a horse. Our Vientiane trip builder makes visiting Buddha Park and other Vientiane attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Very lovely place. The park is small, but has a lot of statues, so you can spent a lot if time to explore them. Entrance fee is 5000 kip. The bus that goes there is N14 and cost 6000 kip to one way.
  • It's ok but the road to it is not tarmac surface for a few miles. Interesting place with unusual sculptures and a large replica of Earth with devil he'll below and rising tree to heaven above. You can go inside mouth of the Earth and climb up inside through corridors and come out at the top of the World. Make sure you don't need toilet here as it's filthy and costs 2,000 LAK to enter.
  • Fascinating mix of objects. The last ~5 kilometers of the approach road is quite bad. Wouldn't recommend riding a bicycle there. 5,000 kip to get in, another 3,000 if you declare a camera at the ticket booth.
  • Good place for travel. We went to there by motobike from center. It took around 40 minutes. The weather was so hot. We recommend to go there on 4 or 5 pm.
  • Okay place to go to pass some time when in Vientiane. The statues are interesting, especially the big round thing where you can climb up on top. Went there in May 2017 and the road was awful - dusty and consisted of 99% potholes. Make sure to bring a scarf or something to cover your face if you go by motorbike (until they fix the road).
