Nice buildings. Colorful and historical but could have been a better visit if not under construction. Good location near tourist hotels. Not far from The river. Free entry so why not visit. Convenient and free :-)

We really enjoy Wat Si Saket very much. It is very rare to see the Wat which is more than five hundred years old and it has been preserved very well. We were impressed that one of the pillars of the Temple has been kept...More

This was well worth the effort of getting to. It was a whole complex of buildings with the monks present doing odd jobs as well as praying.

I went right before noon and so wasn't able to enter the temple because it was prayer time. The outside architecture was beautiful and the surrounding hallways were nice, with all the miniature buddhas in wall niches. It's a quick visit, maybe 15-20 min.

By far the best place to visit in Vientiane, Peaceful atmosphere to take in the architecture, the Buddha's and the wall paintings. Do not miss this place!
