Full description

Experience Chiang Rai on a full-day trip from Chiang Mai to White Temple, Wat Rong Seua Teb, and Baan Dam Museum. Travel in a comfortable car and choose from a group or private tour.

Enjoy the convenience of being picked up from your accommodation in Chiang Mai. Sit back and relax on the air conditioned drive. Stop at the Mae Khachan Hot Springs to relax, dip your feet into steaming mineral water, have a snack, or walk around the gardens.

Continue to the modern architectural masterpiece known as the White Temple. Explore this fantastical space that was designed and built by a local artist, Chaloemchai Khositphiphat.

Head to the Wat Rong Seua Ten (temple of the dancing tiger) to uncover the secrets of this religious site that was built where tigers were said to have leapt over the river. Admire the stunning blue and gold colors of this temple.

The tour was quite great even if the ride is very long. Would have love to spend more time in Chiang Rai, but it is impossible because of riding time. Koi our guide for the day was really nice, she was present to provide informations if wanted but let us have free time to go around by our own on the different temples. I recommand this tour !

Truly wonderful experience with our dear and very nice guide Cookie, who was also extremely kind by taking several photos of us. Both the blue temple and the white temple are truly magical places that I recommend everyone to go and visit. The lunch that was offered to us was a buffet and was worth much more than the price we paid. Thanks and we hope to see you again one day. Pupi.

My wife and I selected a private tour to give us more flexibility in time duration at each temple, lunch selection, and rest breaks travelling the 3.5 hours each way to Chang Rai. Sunny was both our guide and driver and she provided a wonderful stress free experience on the road and at informative knowledge each temple sight.
