A quick tour there is a must if you like temples. I loved the architecture of the Wat, so beautifully designed.

“The Wat of a Thousand Buddhas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Wat Sisaket or Sisaket Temple, open from 8am to 4pm daily is located in Lang Xang Road opposite the Presidential Palace. Within the wall, you’ll find thousands of tiny Buddha images and hundreds of seated Buddhas in rows. You may not realized it but there are over 6,800 buddhas in total made of stone, wood and bronze from 16th and 19th centuries. Entry Fee is 10,000 kip (US$1.25)

“Worth to see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

We had not much time in Vientiane . But it was a good decision to go to Wat Si Saket because the architecture, the temples are in a special way more archaic than in Thailand ( for me). Enjoy

“Not really a stand-out moment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Maybe I'd seen too many temples in Thailand, but this temple didn't really excite or impress me. It's worth seeing because, in truth, there really isn't much else to see in Vientiane. Take a slow walk there and if you see something exciting on the way stop there instead. However, of you've never seen a temple before then this is a must-see!

“Worth the Walk!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

This temple is walkable from almost every hotel in Vientiane. Don't waste your money on a tuk tuk if you can. The entrance to the temple is $5000 kip and offers some of the best architecture Vientiane has to offer. There are no photos inside the main temple, but the hall of buddhas makes this temple unique. It's also still used by many monks who you will see roaming the grounds. Signs are in multiple languages so you can read about the various historical artifacts they have. Don't waste your money on a guide. We spent about 30-45 minutes here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The photos are fantastic.
