Buddha Park - Review
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
I wanted to try the public bus so this was a great opportunity; an interesting ride of some 45 min from the bus terminal (fare: LAK 6K). Reaching there at 16h I had just one hour to spend, which was sufficient. You probably wouldn't need more than an hour coz of the heat anyway. I understand the statues here have little historic value though they may appear to be old. Better consider it a fun park of a rare collection of some weird sculptures. Very easy access by bus/bike, not worth paying for the tour I'd say. Entry: 5K Toilet: 2K (as of Aug 2017)
Neat little tourist attraction. Bothing amazing, nothing terrible. Worth a visit if you're out of ideas.
Enjoyable afternoon trip. Great for selfies! The flowers also attract some very lovely butterflies. Recommend taking the bus since it is very convenient.
Nice change of scenery. If only the road leading up to it was in a better state.
it is ok if you have nothing to do at the town. u can take bus no. 14 from central bus station directly to here. bus fares has increased to LAK 8k, same goes to entrance fees from LAK 5k to 15k. One thing very important is hot weather, don't forget your sunscreen and umbrella. it's like burning
