After breakfast, we take a short drive to the surprising Buddha Park. On the outskirts of Vientiane, along the Mekong River, lies a vast, manicured garden lined with trees housing over 200 concrete sculptures of Buddha, Hindu gods, and mythological creatures of various sizes. The park's most striking sculpture is a huge pumpkin with three levels representing earth, heaven, and hell. It can be explored via a staircase, offering spectacular views of the park from the top. Despite its interesting sculptures, Buddha Park is not a temple. However, locals regularly visit to worship its religious monuments, such as its large reclining Buddha. Enjoy a local lunch at the nearby Lao Disabled Women Development Center (LDWDC), where we join their 'surn tour' to learn more about the status of disabled women in Laos. Women with disabilities are among the most disadvantaged, vulnerable, and impoverished people in Laos. The training offered by LDWDC helps empower women, increasing their self-esteem and financial independence. Funded almost entirely through donations, your visit will provide crucial support to help the center continue enabling the disabled in Laos. The rest of the day is at our leisure, with dinner on your own account.
