Buddha Park, Vientiane

3.9
#1 of 26 in Sightseeing in Vientiane
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.

  • Not so far from the city center. Different from any other park, it has many status. We had a tour with local guide who had explained much about each we saw. Nice story. Must visit it!  more »
  • The buddha park is at least atypical. We have not regretted the move but know that we paid 150000kip to 2 to go by tuk - tuk and it took about 1 hour to get there and 1 hour back because the site is at 27kms and the road is in the works! On-site, we paid the entrance but no extra charge for the camera.

  • 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.
  • Truely amazing! It is outside of the city center which makes it a bit hard to get to, but totally worth the visit if you are in Vientiane. You can rent a motorbike or take the local bus. The park has over 200 statues of buddah, Hindu gods, animals and demons.
  • 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.
  • Interesting park,quirky statues,about 26 km from Vientiane city center, bumpy and dirt road.Went here by rented motorbike.Worth a look.

Where to stay in Vientiane

Pretty little Vientiane offers a good range of accommodations, with most either mid-range or upmarket hotels by national standards. Close to the riverfront sit the grandest of the bunch, with newly built high-rise hotels and boutiques set in old French colonial buildings. Move away from the water a little to find some standard, unassuming hotels, mixed in with a few more boutiques and high-rises overlooking the prettier plazas and along the main boulevards. For budget options, look at the guesthouses and hostels on the side streets around Rue Setthathilath, but make sure to reserve your room early to avoid disappointment.
