It's a good idea to get there early to avoid the crowds and the heat. There is plenty to see here and lots of food options

A cultural touchstone of Chiang Mai with unparalleled views of the city. Busy but worth it. Irrespective of religious background, this is a good way to see the Buddhist way of worship.

Was a great experiance learnt so much about Buddha and the people. Well worth the 300 steps to top to see the temple and surrounding views. 300 steps down. Can take cable car up.

We had a lovely day up at the temple, very scenic and loads of great picture opportunities, the only thing that I’d say to be careful of is the journey up (the only thing taking it down from a 5 star review). The roads were...More
