A great place to go - quiet, shady, a bit outside of the town of Chiang Saen, Wat Pa Sak represents a sophisticated piece of Lannanese architecture and culture. I have been there several times and always enjoyed it.

Chiang Saen is a strange town- just across the river from Laos but hundreds of kilometres from anywhere of importance in Thailand. It is not surprising then that its history is quite different from that of most of the country. It has had as much to do with Burmese traders and armies as those from the Thai centres of power. It has its own eclectic collection of ruins which attest to this history apart. Easily the most important of them is Wat Pa Sak, with its fourteenth century with rows of elegant standing Buddhas. Though six hundred years old, some of the original stucco figures remain and these are a delight to behold and photograph. At the time of our visit there was scaffolding around the main stupa, so I hope they don't restore it insensitively. If they do, they will have done a service to this sleepy's finest treasure.
