    This Park is located on the edge of the Mekong is not unpleasant to walk around. You can admire the statue representing the King Anouvong who reigned in the early nineteenth century. The night market in Vientiane offers clearly that many products for tourists at higher prices to those that can be had elsewhere.

    It is recommended to go in time for the sunset tour. Night Bazaar is held, so does not get bored. It is perfect as a photo spot.

    The park is famous for its blocks-long nighttime market which is very lively. There is a long walkway along the banks of the Mekong River and worshipers frequent the statue of Chao Anouvong.  more »

    nice park that is behind the presidential building. if you go here, be sure to keep going to past the end of the park to the left side facing the Mekong/south, past the statue and away from the downtown, where you will find the New World area weather permitting. Very clean and similar to many western inter city civic parks. you can see the Mekong River from here and walk along back to the night market area. (this area shows signs of coming development as of June 2017, so there may be more here in the near future)

    Generally I like the ambiance of the area around it. The Lao people are so friendly. Will definitely come back and visit again.

    Take a walk to watch sunset, then stroll around night market which is cheaper in price.

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.
