  • Not very special, but if you're in the area worth to go along. Like many attractions in Vientiane pretty ordinary.

  • Normal Park near the city centre, along the Mekong, it is possible to walk during the day, but there is nothing special, and in the evening there opens the night market with Misc. souvenirs, clothes, shoes and all sorts of things.

  • Actually the title says it all. The place is not far from the nightmarket and directly at the river front. The statue itself isn't really spectacular.

  • 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.
