“Overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Although Buddha Park is only 25 km from the city, it took us more than an hour to get there. Driving through the dirt roads, one could get seasick. After a long, uncomfortable journey, one discovers that the park is just full of stone sculptures from 1958. My 80-year old mother said that she's even older than this tourist site. I said that she should then be a tourist attraction :)

“Don't miss this park in Vientiane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Such a lot of statues in this park, it is amazing! We had a great time looking and photographing them. Only problem is that the sun was HOT, go earlier in the morning.

“Bizarre but worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

A trip out of the city on a bumpy road you will find Buddha Park. An amazing array of weird and wonderful statues so remember your camera. Not a long visit required, you might only be there for a hour but worth a trek out.

“Not worth travelling so far for this”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

It was a small garden the size of a football field filled with a huge reclining buddha and some other weird statues.
The road there was bad, full of dust and bumpy.
Nothing fantastic!
