Interesting wat to visit; gives a view of traditional Buddhist culture. Convenient to visit on walking tour.

Nice to visit for a quick look, but there are more authentic Wats to visit in Chiang Mai that have not been modernized or overrun by tourists as much as Wat Phra Singh. Still worth a visit for a first-time visitor.

My second time here but this temple still the best in my mind in CNX city. We knows this temple by match with Dragon Chinese horoscope. Come to visit if you like Northern style temple.

We spent 90 min at this temple in the late afternoon. Like most temples, you can donate B$20 in exchange for offerings to the Buddha such as lotus, candles and incense. We went round the golden stupa 3 times as a form of respect for...More

Not my favourite but still a nice traditional thai temple, where you can even exchange and speak with monks.

I highly recommend visiting inside Wat Phra Singh. Also, visit the little courtyard to the south of the wat. It's serene and has many pieces of advice posted on signs on the trees there.
