Great place. You have to pay to enter. They offer some artwork and postcards that you can purchase at the end. There needs to be a brochure or tour guide of some type. It would have been amazing to have had a tour guide to discuss history and beliefs associated with the Buddha Park. Still, it is worth going. Take... More

During my trip to Laos, i plan to visit Buddha park but unfortunately they were closed. I'll surely make another trip to visit this place.

No doubt Buddha Park was one of my trip´s greatest highligths. In first place because it´s outsided the crowded, heavy traffic and bad air of VIentiane streets and second because the place itself is amazingly inteesting with beautiful sculptures and lots of symbology. Conservation status of museum pieaces is not that good specially those inside the psycodelic 'pumpkin' representing heaven,... More

The park is about a 10 min drive from the friendship bridge. Well worth a visit, not big enough for all day, but need a good couple of hours, set close to the mekong river in a lovely peaceful setting This is the first of 2 Buddha parks the 2nd and biggest is just outside nong khai Thailand about 15mins...

This park has concrete statues of Buddha, Hindu gods, and a few Chinese gods. It ought to be tacky but somehow it isn't. The highlights are a giant reclining Buddha in the death pose and a round three story building one climbs. The levels represent hell, Earth, and heaven. Each level has statues (quite a few are broken) showing what... More

Buddha Park is a glorious selection of concrete Buddhas and fantastical animals. The concrete has faded to a dark grey giving them an age and gravitas which belies there birth in 1958. A climb through the mouth of a large edifice and up to the top of the dome affords a wonderful view of the park. Great fun.

You should visit if you have a full morning or afternoon to kill. There are weird rules like a camera/photo charge, but that's not enforced. There's no history in this park, it was put together by an artist who eventually went to Thailand and built a replica park. There's a mix of religions represented in the sculptures. The most interesting... More

Definitely worth a trip! Pretty grounds to walk around in, great on a sunny day. Sculptures are amazing And climbing up the temple gives you a great view out over the whole park!

Relaxing to walk around between these sculptures. Worth to enter the pumpkin to see the different levels and the view from the top. You can spend 1-2 hours. Our guide had some interesting explanations/ mythological stories. Some shade in the afternoon due to the high statues/ some of the trees. It also has a cafeteria but we did not check... More

Worth the bus ride out. Find the central bus station. Take the 14 bus (which is actually around the corner). Cost is 6,000 kip. 40 minute ride to Buddha Park. Cool statues. You can climb way up inside one-I wished we'd brought a flashlight. We read one review on here which suggested renting a bike. I would not take a... More
