  • Walking in the park in the morning and late the afternoon would be nicer because there are a few big trees there. It was great to the the Pha That Luang from the park.

  • 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.
