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. With our international travel planner, Vientiane attractions like Buddha Park can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Cool place to visit in Vientiane. Price was 40 000kip for foreigners. Beautiful garden with many Buddha statues. If you walk a bit further you come to the Mekong.

  • Please note that the entrance fee for foreigners has been raised to 40,000 kip. Also the price of the bus tickets on line 14 has been raised, it was 12,000 kip each way. The park itself was nice...

  • The trip was an amazing experience … the park is located 25 km away from the capital Vientiane, you can take the bus n°14 at the Central Bus Station of Vientiane. This park contains over 200 Hindu and Buddhist statues. The average time Buddha Park is an entertaining couple of hours. There is also a restaurant by the river to recover from the heat after walking in the park. The entrance fee to the park is 15 000 Kip per person. I highly recommend this place!
  • It is fairly small and quite far from the city. I might have enjoyed if I had picked up an audio tour pack. Only 15,000 kip for a ticket though. Toilets and refreshments available inside.
  • This place is stunning! I love the variety of different budhhas and sculptures. You can even walk into one of them. If you are hungry you cam get food and drinks there too
  • Very nice place to visit since they have built some more accommodations, new side of the park which is full of green and flowers. Getting out of Vientiane for awhile, It's about 24 km from the city centre. The entrance for foreigner is 15,000 Kip. For lao is 10,000 kip.
  • Super amazing work of art. Many different sculptures of Buddha and ancient civilization. Your can enter the stupa looking building it has 3 stories, roof top for a good view of the entire park. Steps are steep and narrow.
