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

  • A really interesting corner of Vientiane. Really enjoyed exploring the hidden passageways inside the monkey head and the statues are both surprising and intricate. Definitely visit if in Vientiane!

  • One of the point of attraction. Just about hundred of Buddha statue surrounding. Dont expecting much here but can pay a visit.

  • Worth a look if you're in Vientiane with time to spare. The ride to the park is longer than you'll probably stay. Entry is 15,000kip and you can take the bus from Talat Sao mall where the central bus terminal is. Number 14 and it is 8,000kip each way. The bus is actually around the corner away from the rows of buses. Ask around and ppl will direct you to where the bus is. The roads are in the process of being repaved and there's only a short stretch that's left, so it's not too bad of a ride.

  • It's a nice place to visit. The park isn't big, but it's packed with statues. The view from the top is quite cool. It's almost 40 minutes ride from Vientiane bus station and the road after the Bridge is awful, but it was quite an experience at the end. There is a nice cafe you can have a lunch at.

  • A bit of a novelty park on the Mekong and a very pleasant half day independant tour by local bus from Vientiane to just past the Friendship Bridge (about 40 minutes each way). Good modern facilities on site, pleasant landscapes, statuary curiosities. Take care climbing the giant pumpkin as 'elf n safety doesn't really exist.
