  • I was visiting the landmark in deliberately do not need for you to follow. I tried to picture a hot time when you visit the landing looked at would be better. This is right next to the River Road, it is difficult to walk.

  • Here is the King, looking over the Mekong and hands to Thailand? Times in the seventies must have been that, as the agents, drug dealers, and hippies here lustiert have US dollars and the population! Never forgotten our "Peter Scholl Latour" with his war reports from the Vietnam war. Today it's raining (thank God), the town is deserted and paralyzed. We go in a bar and see whether we were a couple meet the old warhorse at the Gin and tonic?

  • This is a nice park, unfortunately it doesn't appear to be well cared for so lots of rubbish and the gardens need some TLC  more »

  • 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
  • Great spot to catch sunset in Vientiane City overlooking the Mekong and Thailand. A recreational park for the locals and also a pleasant place to visit for visitors. 5 minutes walk to the night market.
  • The north side of park is nicer than south side. Still plastic trash to be found around the park. Lots of flies. Fitness equipment here but most is rundown or broken. 2000kip to use toilet. Shop in front of toilet only has bags of chips and sugary drinks. Night market on north side. Statue has no English only Lao explanation.
  • this place is nice and beautiful day time is good for relax and night time is good for people to shopping you can see many thimg here such as clothes, food. . .one thing that nice is sunset
