This is truly one of the best temples in Thailand. The whole area is very tranquil and very well maintained. Small, but gorgeous buildings and atmosphere. A must see in Chiang Mai.

The ornate grounds of this temple are so pretty. There are several buildings and structures to see. The monks chanting and walking the grounds, as well as the burning incense, add to your experience. If you visit on a Sunday, the Sunday Night market starts...More

I went here with friends who live in Thailand. The temple was gorgeous. I would recommend going near sunset. The pictures are stunning.

Beautiful temple. Make sure when you go, out of respect, be covered up. Cover your shoulders and legs.

This wat contains the beautiful Phra Singh Buddha. Admission was 20 Bhat. There were several buildings and one not to be missed had the reclining buddha. The gold elephants were impressive. We really enjoyed the beauty of this wat.

Absolutely. You can walk to the Tha Pae Gate. I walked back and forth many times. The only problem is you will be sweating walking :)

I need some help putting together my itinerary for Chiang Mai tour. I am going to hire a driver for the day and not sure what all i can pack into a 8 hour trip. Here are the things we know we are going to do: 1. Dio Suthep Temple 2. Orchid & Butterfly farm 3. Tiger Kingdom How much time do you think that will take. I don't expect we will spend a ton of time at the orchid & butterfly farm. Maybe 20 mins. We will want to spend some time at the tiger kingdom and interact with the...More

Yes you can do all that in one day with a driver Wat Saun Dok is on the road to Doi Suthep and Tiger Kingdom is out near Mae Rim . This mean you cross town and you will have plenty of traffic. I went to The butterfly and Orchid some years ago ,I have also been to an Orchid only one at Mae Rim I would go to the Tiger Temple in the morning if you are there peak season. Chok Dee

Parking in Chiang Mai city. (5 Replies)
We'll be in Chiang Mai early October for a few days and planning on staying on the east side of the river. I'll be driving the extended family around in a mini van and wonder what the prospects of trying to park in the inner city area would be like? Say for instance trying to park near Wat Phra Singh. There will be 8 of us so leaving the van and trying to all cram in a taxi doesn't sound like fun. I suppose there are songthews running around though. cheers Mark.

I've hired a self drive mini van before for a trip with lots of family members, but we needed it for a trip out on the Mae hongson loop. If you'll be staying in and around chiang Mai then it will probably be easier and less stressful to hire songthaews, it would be pretty cheap too as the cost is spread among quite a few of you. It won't be difficult to find a driver who will take you anywhere you want to go.
