The busy temple is a must see in town and there are much photo opportunities. Personally, I just find it a bit made up and quite gaudy.

The first temple was build in Vientiane which is more than 400 years ago. So, it is very old of age and a very holy temple.

A truly stunning Wat. Having seen and visited over dozen Laotian Wats, Wat Si Saket is the best. Definitely worth the ~$1 entry fee. Go and visit, you will not be disappointed.
