    Amazing Wat to visit that is right in the walled center of town. It is big and very impressive! There is a minimal entrance fee to get in. Really enjoyed the opportunity to casually sit down with a Buddist monk to ask questions of his life and religious practice. This was part of the experience. It is a place for beautiful camera shots as the place is well kept. Not to be missed!

    Such a beautiful atmospheric temple to visit, our guide was so interesting explaining all the parts of it (well worth having) we visited late afternoon were able to see and hear the monks chanting and receive a blessing. we used the funicular to reach it as its around 300 steep steps otherwise. Great city views if it is clear

    Beautiful temple complex in the forest on a hillside. Very peaceful too and not too crowded. 10 mins or so outside the city, and a sensible stop on the way to Doi Suthep if you are going.

    Amazing silver temple, really makes an impression! There is only one disadvantage - women cannot enter the temple inside :(

    A nice temple, currently under reconstruction. The place is nice and, as many temples in this region, really impressive.

    This was a brilliant day and I learned so much.
    The monk leading the one day meditation course was excellent. Do not miss this course if you are in Chiang Mai. I’ve been on a number of meditation courses, but this was one of the most enjoyable and interesting.

    Wat Suan Dok is one among a plethora of Buddhist temples in Chiang Mai. The collection of white chedi, although getting dated, is the main highlight. The main temple is equally impressive. Unfortunately the main stupa is under renovation. Admission required for entry into the main temple.

    Beautiful temple in beautiful surroundings, definitely worth visting if you're in Chiang Mai. It's quite small and wooden, so different from the others in Chiang mai, which makes it quite unique

    A wonderful temple, very peaceful, and with an interesting architecture, as it is totally wooden. Behind the temple, you find a place with a lot of colored lanterns hanging.
    A very nice temple I wod highly recommend visiting. Moreover, the entrance is free.

    I really love to walk along the road surround the village. There are many shops that sell products, range from big wooden furniture to stylistic wooden vase and crafts. If you are the one who love decorating your home, you will love this place. I visit this place many times but still love to be there if I have time. Reasonable price. Some products are the same as the ones you find in the night market of CM but I like to buy directly from the producers. It may be a bit in-convenient to travel there if you don't have a car.

    Bhubing Palace is a royal winter residence built to accommodate the royal family during their visits to Chiang Mai. We reached here, as part of a taxi tour of Wat Doi Suthep, and other temples on the west of the Chiang Mai Old Town. It is about 6km from Wat Doi Suthep. Entry to the place is by purchase of a ticket priced at 50Baht. You must be properly attired, shoulders covered and with long pants, or you may be given a pants to cover up before entry to the compound.
    There are a number of buildings here. There is a log cabin which is the seasonal residence of the royal princess, a eucalyptus wood log cabin which is the seasonal residence of crown prince, a two storey royal Guesthouse, a teak wood pavilion, a fern garden, and a water reservoir. The gardens with various flowering plants, including roses are well landscaped, well maintained, clean quiet and peaceful away from noise. There are sign boards explaining the various buildings here. We were there in the morning, and the weather was pleasant due to the elevation and the surroundings. We spent about one and a half hours, here to look around and capture some pictures. Our visit here was worthwhile.
