This is an interesting and pretty place to wander around. If you're lucky, you'll catch a large group of monks filing into the big temple to chant. You can stay in the back and watch. Also, it sounds kind of hokey, but "monk chat" (chatting with the monks there) at the tables in the back is actually way more fun... More

Beautiful landmark to see, with nice temples around it, but the main sight itself (pictured in listing) can only be seen from a distance. A nice hour spent looking at surrounding statues, the gates of the complex, etc.

Lovely visit in the morning. Don't miss the fun stories in front of the buddha images and there is a small lovely vendor selling excellent mango sticky rice with coconut ice cream at 2x baht.

The place is easy to found and although it's was a hot afternoon, there are places made with bamboo for you to sit or even lay down. i think i can grab a book and sit there for the whole afternoon and enjoy my time in Chiang mai. Chedi Luang is full of historical meaning and looks gorgeous as well.... More

A truly peaceful experience. If you go in the morning it will be more enjoyable as hordes of people go in the afternoon. This is a must see in Chiang Mai.

if you´re in Chiang am you can´t fail to see this place. It´s right in the centre of the city and is a must see. When i was there they had a very strange festival going on about 6 groups were playing in close vicinity with each other so it sounded horrible and a couple of monks were recording it... More
