  • Great walk to see this , and take pictures. We walked from centre fo town. There is really not too muck to say about this great to view when walking.  more »
  • Except for the big statue by the promenade, this park is nothing special. At times littered, sometimes unpleasant people. Or just locals having a picnic - or kiss.  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.
  • 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 is the best in Vientiane: river side, clubs, night market. Good place to exercise in the evening. Lots of local here to exercise in the evening.
  • The statue overlooking to Thailand. Its a park where the locals like to pic nic and relax . There have some shops nearby for drinks and ice creams. Have a few small food shops serves small snacks. Walking distance to the famous night market.
  • I used to bang local chicks at night here, behind the bushes. Epic blowjobs made in Laos! Recommended!

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.
