Loas

Loas is a small little country that no ones reallt heards about. its similar to Thailand and just as nice. I stayed at the Don Chan Palace, Hotel & Convention, Vientiane. which was $76 cad.
the fisrt day I went to the Buddha Park. The park was started in 1958 by Luang Pu (Venerable Grandfather) Bunleua Sulilat.[2] Luang Pu Bunleua Sulilat was a priest-shaman who integrated Hinduism and Buddhism. The park look like it was hunted and it looked very old
The second day I visted Wat Si Saket was built in 1818 on the order of King Anouvong (Sethathirath V.) Si is derived from the Sanskrit title of veneration Sri, prefixed to the name of Wat Saket in Bangkok, which was renamed by Anouvong's contemporary, King Rama I. Wat Si Saket was built in the Siamese style of Buddhist architecture, with a surrounding terrace and an ornate five-tiered roof, rather than in the Lao style.
