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 - Write a Review
Nice place to go but we had a bad experience with the restaurant inside the park. We ordered fried fish and they cheated us by taking some fish meat out for themselves. We asked them about it, of course, they didn’t accept . I took a picture of it but I don’t know how to post😓
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 hr to spend, which was sufficient. You probably wouldn't need more than an hr 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 August 2017)
Interesting Buddhist / Hindu style statues. Nice if you like this sort of stuff. Entrance fee was 5000 kip.
Nice place to visit in vientiane. You can catch the local bus from the bus station in the downtown near the shopping mal and pay 6000 kip. The bus has air condition and it id about 45 min trip. You must find the bus number 14
An interesting park just outside central Vientiane. We got a tuk tuk ride there and back which didn't cost much. The road is pretty bumpy and a fairly memorable journey. It think it was around 5000kip or so entry fee. It's not a huge park, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in statues. There is also a head that you can climb into and experience different levels. From heaven to hell of we interpreted it correctly. It can get super hot so avoid the midday period.
