The sights I experienced in this shrine are indescribable. We went with a private car and guide service so we really didn't have to worry about any of the logistics. My husband and I walked up the steps to the temple - bit exhausting but...More

The temple is without doubt one or the most impressive around Chiang Mai, with all its gold-plated decorations. On top of that, behind the temple one finds a good view over Chiang Mai city. One major drawback of the temple is the amount of tourist...More

Wat Phra That located on an uphill in Chiang Mai. So most of the people will take local bus or hire a local travel agent to there. Entrance fee + cable car fee are nearly 100baht for foreigners (non-Thai). You can take photos there, or...More
