Today we visited the Buddha Park outside of Vientaine.
Here is a quote from the Lonely Planet:-
"About 25 klm southeast of Vientaine, eccentric Xieng Khuan thrills with other-worldly Buddhist and Hindu sculptures, and was designed & built in 1958 by Luang Pu, a yogi-priest-shaman who merged Hindu and Buddhist philosophy, mythology and iconography into a cryptic whole."
Sounded a bit odd so off we went.
Travel options were a return trip by Tuk Tuk for 200,000 Kip (about AUD $31) or take a local bus for 24,000 Kip return (about AUD $3.75).
Irrespective of the price difference, why would anyone bounce along in a Tuk Tuk for 50 klm when you could share a bus with the local people and gain a better insight into how things work in a foreign Country?
We hope you enjoy the photos.
