Need to take a tuk tuk to get there as it’s a bit out of the city, but it’s lovely and quite different to the others. Very peaceful, we were the only tourist there and got to see some local children in traditional dress.

Consists of several temples & shrines, the most unique one is the snake temple with Indian influence. Many people come to pray as it's the full moon day of Lunar calender. It's pleasant to stroll around before noon as the wind was still bit cooler.

This is really one of the best temple complexes in the Chiang Mai area. It's a bit further out than most of the other temples, but that means fewer tourists, which is a good thing. This isn't a single temple, but rather, a complex and...More

Lying northwest of the city center, on the other side of the super highway, Wat Jed Yod dates its construction to the Kingdom of Lanna’s Golden Age. King Tilokaraj ordered it built to be the venue for the 8th World Buddhist Council in 1477. The...More

Very ancient, several old Temples set amongst gardens and very old trees. Very scenic different from other temples, not far to get to. Ordination hall females aren’t allowed in but it was locked up anyway when I was there so no one could get in....More

Expect to spend about an hour here as there are so many beautiful temples on well kept grounds. Some of the most stunning features are the massive ancient trees, all adorned with sashes. We came after the monsoon season so everything was covered in moss...More

I will be taking the green bus from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai. Where will the bus drop me off? I would like to book a hotel close by the station.

There are two bus stations in Chiang Rai. The one in the centre of town is the best one if you decide to stay in town. Many hotel options. We stayed at the Nak Nakara, an 80 Baht tuk tuk ride from the night market.

Doc Tremblay - why do you recommend Patara over ENP? I am trying to decide between the two too! I am leaning more towards Patara just wasn't sure whether riding the elephants was cruel to them? Sorry Lizzylu for barging in on your post! Your itinerary looks great, I am going to Chaing Mai soon too, I wish I had as many days to spend there as you!
