A day at Buddha Park

March 1, 2010 – Day 431 – Vientiane, Laos

In the back of a tuk tuk we bounced and sped out of Vientiane to Buddha Park. About 26 km outside the city is a small park by the Mekong filled with numerous different styles of Buddha statues.

The entire park was built in 1958 by one man who left Laos shortly after and crossed the river to Thailand where he built another identical park. A great place to spend a few minutes even though the ride out to it does take quite a while.
