Bad taste at its best
Apr 2021
The Lord Buddha would be ashamed to see what has become of his teachings
Bad taste, incredible kitsch, to be missed

Unusual temple
Feb 2021
Starting from the initial and spectacular entry this temple does not disappoint and, in the old days, several rolls of film would be used to record both the detail and the overall views. The main hall too is lovely, overlooked by a serene but friendly white Buddha. Don't miss the beautiful angels at his feet either.
The entire ensemble is characterised by elaborate sculptures - for want of a better word 'modern thai roccoco' common throughout the city of Chiang Rai.

Beautiful Blue Temple
Jan 2020
“The Blue Temple” of Chiang Rai
Wat Rong Suea is also known as the Blue Temple due to its color especially the interior. We reached this temple as part of a taxi tour to the golden triangle. Entrance to this site was free. Right in front at the entrance to the compound, is a white Buddha seated on blue pedestals within a water fountain. A glance to the left here, will reveal another white Buddha, seated with his followers. The main building is the viharn which is golden and blue in colour, on the exterior. The entrance to the Viharn is guarded by Nagas . The building’s interior is strikingly blue in colour, and a sight to behold. There are two rows of pillars with murals holding the roof up. The walls which are also in blue have painting with scenes of the life times of Buddha. The ceilings are very beautifully done, again in blue and golden colour. The main deity is a large white Buddha on the altar.
As you walk behind the Viharn, there is a blue and gold coloured chedi. There is a White standing Buddha at the back of the Viharn. There are some shops on one side, selling food drinks and souveneirs. We were there at 9am and the weather was pleasant. We spent about 1 hour here to look around and capture some pictures. There were some taxis parked, but it would be still advisable to book a round trip and have the driver wait.

One of must place to visit in Chiangrai
Oct 2020 • Friends
Beautiful color temple. Amazing creatures. Accept the white temple, this blue temple is a must visit in Chiangrai. You just need a little time to see all the building. The only way to get to the blue temple either you take tuk tuk, taxi or rent a motorbike.

A lovely place for a visit. Not a huge complex so 45 mins is plenty of time to see everything.
Beautiful place. The colours are vibrant. The statues around are impressive.
Recommend a visit.
