  • Unfortunately no photos on my iPad to, but go here definitely go! We are by bike to the sculpture garden cycled. 8 km from our hotel. Easy to find. Bicycle tour 80 baht. Entrance sculpture garden 20 baht. So for just over 2.5 euro you have a really nice excursion! The sculpture garden is certainly not known among tourists. Everything is only in Thai. That's too bad because you the story of each image now is missing. But even without that text and explanation, it is absolutely a great attraction. Some images are up to 20 metres high. And all very detailed. Nice to have seen!

  • I was six years ago in the Buddha Park only on the Laos side. Remember then I was very amazed. And so I went to look at the same Park sculptor on the other side of the Mekong. Has received a great deal of fun. No doubt this is a man of enormous talent and a gift. It is simply not negotiable. 20 years he worked in Laos until you put the Communist regime of the country in the late 70 's. He studied the arts at Hindu magicians in Vietnam. And here he is simply moved to the other side of the river and began to create its own miracle. Sad that his odds are on a false charge, allegedly bad said about King that was probably a revenge locals spent 11 months in jail and a year later he died at the age of 72 years. Undoubtedly the brilliantly talented person, note the sculpture of an elephant and hairy mongrels at the entrance that embodies our lad dogs barking and caravan, and here the elephant, goes. Note the sculptures of dogs, it's the same people. A 25 metre long snake-Naga who closed the Buddha from the rain. All very interesting and informative. Admission is 20 baht. Got over 100 Batt on tuk tuk, but they wanted a lot more. Bargain. Back came just 4 km away. Just come straight down, there true ogoltelyh scared and flocks because the barking dogs, but descend directly to the sunken Chedi in 1857 year rather drifted into the river. The top is visible in the dry season. And then along the promenade you reach the Center.
