The temple itself is very beautiful. Inside, there's a massage area and it's only 140.- for 1 hour foot/thai massage. The atmosphere is relaxing. I had foot massage and it was my last day in Chiangmai so I wish I could have found this place earlier. It opens from 10am to 8pm daily. They sell local made tiger balm and... More

This is another temple, worth visiting in case you're near the Night Market anyway. The interior of the Pagoda is very interesting, very much different.

Its a proper Thai massage so no oils and for me some pain as i had very stiff muscles and joints fro many days spent trekking and cycling in Vietnam. But oh so worth it as... More

The temple is a pretty mixture of Lanna and Burmese style architecture and has a laid back atmosphere. Massage inside the grounds is exceptional and a steal at 140 Baht. Take your time and go for 2 hours, it's well worth it. Alternatively try their speciality, one hour Tok Sen massage (administered with wooden mallet and hammer), which is particularly... More

The wat itself is nothing very special but nice atmosphere, however on the grounds of the temple you will find one of the best massage places in norther Thailand and I know what Iam talking about.

Stumble across this temple as we were walking along the night bazaar street. Beautiful from the outside with the sun setting and it looks amazing with the white structure. Have not tried the massage mentioned though and if I have the opportunity in the next few days, may try out the massage and 170 baht is definitely cheap.

This is a beautiful temple of course. Full of good energy and nice people- but in the back is a Thai massage area. It is 140 Baht and worth every penny. Ah Lyn Yah is amazing and very sweet. I asked for her every time. It's a very intense massage- you will be really relaxed.

On our first day in Chiang Mai, on our way to the Old City from the east side of the river, we passed Wat Mahawan and went in to have a look. What makes it a bit different from many other temples is the mixture or styles. There are many different types of guardians. I found out afterwards the reason... More

This is a peaceful temple just off a busy street. Inside the walls, you can get a good idea of traditional Thai Buddhist architectural style. I went here after getting a two-hour massage inside the grounds at a massage school. Excellent place for traditional Thai massage.
