If you are ever in Nongkhai, this is an unforgettable sight. I won't say more because I don't want to spoil your experience. You really should go !!
A Lao sculpture who loved really big arrtwork dedicated his life to make this parc a very strange masterpiece. Even if you find it a tad bizarre, you will never forget it.
The first time I saw these amazing statues I was utterly in awe. I recently returned 4 years later with my partner. He was just as in awe as I was. The second time around I noticed more details than I think I did the first time. Definitely go if you are in the area, although be warned its a... More

This place has to be seen to be believed. A monk on a mission apparently built this back in the 1970s and 80s and seems to have thrown in everything from Buddhism and Hinduism, with a few mod-cons for good measure. Worth seeing, if for no other reason than it is something different! Also spelled as kaew ku (remember, it's... More
