Vientiane Buddha Park (Buddha Park, also Xieng Khuan, meaning "spiritual city") consists of several dozen statues of Buddhist and Hindu religions. There are statues of deities and scenes from important historical religious events, and the park itself is decorated with flower beds and equipped with paths for walking. It is believed that this is one of the must-visit places in Vientiane, but at the same time do not expect too much: yes, it is spectacular, but without a tour or proper knowledge you will not understand anything here, but only be able to take a dozen photos. The park is not very large, the visit will take at most 30 minutes, and with the road by bus a couple of hours. There is a cafe on site, a free toilet. You can go ashore, overlooking the Mekong River on the shores of Thailand.

Buddha Park was founded in 1958 by the Mystic priest Luang Pu Bunleua Sulilat, and since then continues to be completed. Across the river on the Thai side, by the way, is the more impressive Sala Keoku religious Park in Nong Khai.
