Fodor's Expert Review Inpeng Cultural and Entertainment Park
This large park near the river has waterslides, beer gardens, restaurants, and plenty of family fun, plus a model village of miniature Lao houses. Sculptures of Lao heroes dot the grounds, and there's a small zoo. Take a short stroll downriver to admire the sleek lines of the Friendship Bridge, and pop into one of the many restaurants lining the riverbank. Get here via public Bus 14 from the Talat Sao bus station.
