Here you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the local markets and food stalls or relax enjoying fantastic views of the Mekong River and across the river to Thailand. I have recommended to family friends and colleagues

Walking distance is neat at night. U can walk park side or walk on the street regulated for people but night market goods are usally not suitable for tourists. 밤이 걸어다니기엔 좋음. 공원쪽과 도로 길가 쪽있음. 그치만 물건의 질은별로 살만한거 없음. 그래도 많은사람들이 낮보다는 밤에...More

They have Zumba classes at night. I’m not sure of the time but it was happening around 7 when I showed up. Anyone can join in. It’s a fun experience!

Calling the Mekong Riverside Park an attraction is an overstatement. If in the area it is worth a quick look but the views aren't specular even at night.

Avoid, we went for a walk and was way overpriced. Locals get preferential treatment on tables and tourists get put to one side. Not a good place.
