  • A small temple of which so many are in Vientiane. Not especially worth a visit but if you comes along you can get inside. Free access

  • A lovely temple right in the heart of the city as many are. At the gates though there are statues which make this one slightly more unique for Laos, ( more Thai style).  more »

  • It's such a shame that they've taken the lovely little courtyard and gravel path that used to run between the school and the temple and paved it over with 20 tonnes of ugly grey concrete. Feel sad for the kids and the monks every time I walk through here now.
  • Nice Temple. Very quiet and slower pace like in the rest of the city.
  • Very quite and peacefully place.
  • Nice
  • Keep good cars

Where to stay in Vientiane

Pretty little Vientiane offers a good range of accommodations, with most either mid-range or upmarket hotels by national standards. Close to the riverfront sit the grandest of the bunch, with newly built high-rise hotels and boutiques set in old French colonial buildings. Move away from the water a little to find some standard, unassuming hotels, mixed in with a few more boutiques and high-rises overlooking the prettier plazas and along the main boulevards. For budget options, look at the guesthouses and hostels on the side streets around Rue Setthathilath, but make sure to reserve your room early to avoid disappointment.
