A beautiful temple with colourful roof and nice architecture. There is also a school here within its premise. A visit here can be enjoyed in peace and quiet as this temple does not see many tourists.

Together with Wat Ong Teu and Wat Inpeng, they are temples with no tourists. More like a monastery. Quiet. You could take your time to appreciate the art and space with no interference from group of tourists.

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).

Because wats are everywhere, simple wat as this becomes so common and the peculiarity and specialness of them is lost.

No admission fee. Can walk around the grounds first and take photos. Must remove shoes before entering the temple. Easy to stop here when walking in the city.

Located downtown among many restaurants, bars and the Mekong...this pretty little temple is both a school and a place of worship. Not as grand as other Lao temples, but ok for a short visit if in the neighborhood.

There are a lot of beautiful temples in Vientiane, and this is one. There are however, no exhibits or information in English, so to appreaciate it and know what is what, a guide would be good.
