This park if a fair way out past Friendship Bridge No1 and I am not sure even if you have this time its worth the trouble. The park seems to be a favourite of locals but the statutes and other items are all looking very neglected and some have fallen over. I believe that it is an improvement from a... More

Getting out here is a little adventure in itself. There are some good food places arounds the street. Really smaller than I thought it would be, but affordable.

It is a little bit far from the center - 30km. It takes around 45 mins to get there. We spent 250k Kip total for 4 people (round trip).The sculpture is nice for taking picture. But some of them are not well-repaired.

We recommend the local bus ride from the central bus station behind Tatlao shopping mall! As others pointed out It costs 6,000kip that you pay at the end of your trip (terminus - the asphalt road ends there) you get to see the suburbs while staying cool in the air con bus. It is past the Thai-Lao friendship bridge so... More

The park was a lot smaller than we expected. It was about the size of 2 football fields max. The statues are all close together so we were done in 30 minutes. To bad because it took quite some time to get there.

We were happy we went, however we felt 20 minutes there was enough to see the park. We took the public bus (number 14) for 6,000 kip each way which meant we could relax in air conditioned comfort, and look at the sights on the way. The bus drops you at the entrance to the park.

We spent the first half of one our days in Vientiane at Buddha Park and we're glad we did. We took a tuktuk (a lot of drivers have a price chart of what they're asking, so you can haggle from there) and we're glad we did because the drive is about half an hour outside of the main city and... More

We hired a scooter - took 40 mins along busy dusty roads to get to park. Interesting and some nice photo ops but skip it if you don't have time. Go as early as you can to avoid the tourist buses.

We went today, was okay. Nothing special to be honest. Some of the statutes are cool, and the giant pumpkin thing allows a good view across the whole park from the top. We hired a scooter for the day, so didn't lose out as we had plenty of other things to see, however some people have said they paid $20... More

The statues are made of concrete and some are quite bizarre. There are statues of humans, gods, animals, and demons. One sculpture resembles a giant pumpkin which is something you don't see every day! A bit out of town and it gets hot if you go in the afternoon.
