Half way up Mt Phu Si from either the South or East, one will come across small wats, one of which protects the Buddha's footprint. Nothing much to see, except that its a good stop for some great views.

This wat can be reached while climbing up Mount Phosi. It has a shrine containing Buddha's footprint. Views here are North across the Mekong over the airport so you can view sunrise from here.

One of the first things you pass if you are walking up Phousi Hill. The Wat's biggest plus point is the balcony, with a view just as good as at the top but without the crowds. Note - you can see sunrise but not sunset...More

On our way to the Phu Si Hill we passed by the Buddha’s Footprint temple. It's too dark to see anything inside, you'll need a flashlight to explore it properly. It’s not really a temple, it looks like a dark and small hole in the...More
