About Buddha Park, Vientiane
Photography lovers have plenty of reasons to visit Buddha Park. For one, it is Laos’ most famous park for photography. There are around 200 religious statues in this garden. each of these sculptures have been magnified according to their importance and carefully decorated by craftsmen. Buddha is accompanied by sculptures of Hindu gods like Indra riding the three-headed elephant, a four-armed god sitting on a horse and another deity with 12 faces with multiple hands holding various objects. Possibly, the most famous amongst them is the 40-feet wide reclining Buddha. This is easily the most majestic of sculptures in the park. The garden was built in 1958 by Luang Pu Bunleua Sulilat.

Buddha Park, Vientiane Reviews
Thought this place was amazing. Staff very helpful and friendly. Security mainly. Grounds littered with sculptures well worth a visit. Beautiful.Grounds are lovely too. Well done.
In vientiane there is few places to see, and Buddha park is one of these places. Just take a bus in the city to reach there, is cheap and safe, try to get a seat because the way take around 1 hour. In the park there is a monument you can go inside and there are 2 ways to reach the top, through the middle and around. If you go in the middle is dark and full of small statues, I recommended this way.
Gorgeous area with a lot of intricate and ancient work. I particularly liked the 3 levels of Hell Earth and Heaven. View on the top is worth the climb and the restaurant by the water is a good place to cool off after you have finished. A must see if you are in Vientianne
One of our cheapest activities we found. Buses easily found and the bus terminal, and return busses every 15 minutes we spent a hour here and got lots of nice photos that you probably wouldn't get at temple's. A nice experience
Comercialized now. Paid parking and paid to go to the bathroom. The park was naturally beautiful back then. Now it's been taken over by private sector.
