  • The Park is very clean, green gazonchiki made. But local people prefer to sit/lie on gazonchikah. There is a fountain. I've since realized in this park don't smoke, or simply advocate a healthy lifestyle. Was appropriate plaque. Noticed there are also a number of simulators, you can work out for free. The Park is located on the waterfront and after 18.00 there opens Knight market, where can be nice and cheap to build.

  • Park was made to celebrate an Wan Wang, so standing statues of the King. When you first arrived in Vientiane was still the Mekong River here. Park was made to fall outside of the river embankments to make. Not less than 10 years were still made, but planted a lot of trees, has become a place of recreation and relaxation for citizens.

  • It's difficult to say where Chao Anouvong Park starts and ends on Google Maps... The park is really well maintained and a nice place to unwind..The King Chao Anouvong statue facing Thailand is quite imposing by its height by day and by night with its lighting. The walk along the Mae Khong is quite agreeable and stretches long ways on both sides. Locals practicing Tai Chi or Chi Gong in the morning, locals and foreigners walking, running, exercising... Lots of work is currently done to enlarge the area which has amazingly changed in the past years. The Chinese temple is worth a visit too.. Unfortunately some places and walks around were built are brand new, nicely equipped but abandoned..
  • A great plàce yo relax exercise and enjoy the beauty of nature
  • A rather well maintained park close to the river front. You can find some shade during the heat of the day. Maybe if you sit there, you'll be approached by some ladies on a bicycle with a Japanese had who offer you all kind of services like shoulder massage, removing grey hear (and i'm basically bold:-)) or cutting finger nails.
  • A very serene and remote village.. Very quiet in the early morning... Fresh air and cooling in January.... Road can be a bit dusty
  • A nice to sit and relax, however be aware of the locals trying to wash your feet, at night a section of the park turns into a night market so check that out.
