Wat Si Muang, Vientiane

4.3
#3 of 12 in Historic Sites in Vientiane
Find good fortune at Wat Si Muang, a wooden worship temple known for its good luck, attracting visitors to come and make a wish. If the wish is granted, people return to the temple to offer gifts and to give thanks for their fulfilled wish. Intricate details and carvings engulf both the inside and outside of the building, and the golden shade of the walls helps it stand out from the surroundings. Don't miss the golden Buddha statue that sits under a tree in the garden, in front of the temple. See Wat Si Muang and all Vientiane has to offer by arranging your trip with our Vientiane tour itinerary planner.

  • I spent a few hours sitting, these temples are places of life they allow to better understand the country and its people

  • Not far from the morning market for convenient travel in comfort. Guards in the surrounding area, where scores of machines.

  • A small busy temple located in the city centre, this is a working temple popular with the locals. We stopped here awhile for some quiet contemplation.  more »

  • Very peaceful and attractive wat may be one of the best
  • The most beautiful and peaceful Wat I have visited in Vientiane by far. A little bit out of the way but definitely worth the trip.
  • This wat is very relaxing. Not very old or historic, but a peaceful place to relax out of the merciless sun.
  • Very peaceful!
  • I enjoyed this wat and it's surroundings more than any of the sites we visited

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.
