Wat Chet Yot is one of my new favorites! I visited early morning & there wasn't a tourist in sight. This is an old Wat with lots of history, located North West of the wall. The grounds are large but need a good cleaning, I...More

I'll start by saying that I'm a Buddhist and really enjoy visiting temples. I enjoyed Wat Ched Yot for its solitude and for its unique architectural features and history. It was built primarily in the 15th century and the main building with the seven stupas...More

I love having this quiet and lovely space so near some of the busiest traffic in Chiang Mai. Can walk around a little and meet a friend as most folks have heard of this.

Probably my favourite temple in Chiang Mai, located on the Super Highway just outside town, accessible by local taxi. Amazing architecture, much quieter than other more popular temples in Chiang Mai, this complex is really old and well worth the visit, nice grounds to explore...More

Not a bad place but there are better spots around the city to visit. But nice to stop if you are going by.

So many of these in Chiang Mai. It's pretty big and off the beaten path. Worth a wander, I guess. But Chiang Mai is otten hot, smokey, or rainy, so it's kind of uncomfortable wandering around outside.
