Fodor's Review

The attraction at this park near the river (and 20 km [12] miles] from Vientiane near the Thai border) is a model village of miniature Lao houses. Sculptures of Lao heroes dot the grounds. There's also a small zoo in one corner. Take a short stroll downstream and admire the sleek lines of the Friendship Bridge and pop into one of the many restaurants lining the riverbank. Get here with public bus #14 from the Talat Sao bus station.
