Chiang Dao Attractions: What to do & Places to Visit in Chiang Dao
"Read about this place in a book about places to see in the world but had never heard about it until then , but I just found it one of the most beautiful places in the world. There is not a lot to the temple but the walk up the steps and the setting in with mountains all around it is just stunning. Y..."ou can see for miles and if you go up earlier in the day when its cooler it may be better for some. You get a sense of total peace up there and you can understand why the monks use this place. Definately one not to be missed in my books.

"Walk up the 510 steps to Wat Tham Pha Plong. Along the way contemplate the many Buddhist quotes (in English and Thai) that are displayed. At the top, you will be rewarded with a great view and two very interesting shrines at the temple. Meditate at the cave shire for awhile before heading back do..."wn.
I brought my knee braces in case the way was difficult, but never needed them. The first 200 or so steps are a normal height. The remaining 300 or so are much more shallow, and not difficult at all to climb.

"I didn't see a lot I was interested in buying (except for food -- have a light breakfast). The real value here (for me) was people watching. Especially the hill tribe people who come down for the market. If you haven't seen many Asian markets, it is a sight to see. There are some very interestin..."g things to see even if you are going to buy anything.
