Buddha Park, Vientiane

3.9
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.

    Had been ago, accompanied by friend of Laos Buddha Park. Getting a ride to 14 buses stayed parked green. About half an hour, arrive. The old ones are not widely different Buddha images at a glance, such as not on many lined up. Highlight # 1's in can climb up into a large building. Buddha? Or entered from inside the mouth of what, during the very dark and spooky atmosphere. Climbing stairs two or three times that in very steep and a bit dangerous. But tickle the adventurous spirit that was very exciting. And assigned to the top and view good however. It's hopefully I like going here is not, such as the temples of the old tradition, to see interesting Buddha art in surprising spots. Was told by the way Lao friends over in 1 hour watching in about 30 minutes. Still I was satisfied 10 minutes. Entrance fee is 5000. Go bike, dirt road as it is inadvisable, and going with minimum dirty, muddy puddles too good clothes and shoes recommended.

    Really good experience. This park is little bit far from Vientiane, around 45 minutes by car. It's full of Buddha statues and really green. Was nice to walk around, take a look at the river and Thaila...  more »

    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.

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.
