Observe more than 200 sacred statues and a giant 40 meter (131 ft) high image of the reclining Buddha at Buddha Park. Built in 1958 by a monk who studied both Hinduism and Buddhism, the park represents a blend of two religions and all their artistic embodiments of deities, demons, and animals. As you stroll across the exotic compound, observe statues of a Hindu god-king riding a three-headed elephant, a deity with twelve faces and six hands, and a four-armed divine being riding a horse. With our international travel planner, Vientiane attractions like Buddha Park can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
Buddha Park reviews

This is truly worth a visit, the scale of some of the structures are astounding. There are plenty of great photo opportunities that will make your Instagram followers jealous. There are tours that... more »
Rented a motorbike to drive about 30 min to the park. Spent about 30-45 minutes there. I loved all the buddha sculptures and climbing the cement building to see a great aerial view of the place. Right now they are building a beautiful entrance and a wharf along the river. There's a beautiful garden with tons of sunflowers for a good photo op. Really nice, would recommend, especially in a few months when everything is done.
We used public transport to reach here which was surprisingly comfortable. There is an entry fee for this park. A lot of Buddha and Hindu statues in the park. Best visited on an overcast day to avoid the heat. A good place to enjoy for a couple of hours. A lot of small shops and hawkers around selling quick bites or drinks. Though you may better off having your lunch or dinner in Vientiane city as this park is a little outside.
