  • There's nothing special. Is a park large where by the night put the market night (not there is food only clothing and similar) and rest of the heat daytime under the shadow of some tree. Take mosquito repellent, that Yes. The main statue is nothing striking, personally not nothing I liked. Surely have other most interesting parks in the city. Going to be step, surely, to go to other sites, so you can take advantage of to relax a little in their gardens (have the Royal Palace nearby).

  • That may be in your travel plans. But for me, nothing interesting sachai. The Sun is hot, but okay, if you want to find a quiet for relaxing.

  • The park is along side the Mekong and a nice place for an evening stroll and jogging. It is also near to the night market. Nice place to hang out after the night market activities.

  • It's a wonderful place. Before 5pm, the road here is still open for vehicles to access, but after that it's closed for Riverside goers. A lots come here to jog and go for aerobic. The Park also houses Vientiane's Night Market.
  • Very well maintained gardens but surrounded by a busy road.
  • King Anouvong statue. King defeated Thais. showing the border of two countries
  • The park itself is fine but the market is nothing special it's just filled with cheap junk and clothes.
  • Its a lovely place.
