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.

We had a wonderful tour! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we had a great day. The driver was great as well and made sure we had a safe trip. The temples we visited were absolutely amazing and pictures don’t do it justice! We never felt rushed and had the perfect amount of time to explore at each stop. We liked that we were able to learn from our guide at the start of each stop, but then given the time to explore on our own. We learned a lot about the temples, Thailand, and Thai culture. Would highly recommended this tour!

Mr. Puchapong (Shy) was an amazing guide. He arrived early at the meetup location so we could begin the tour on time. He is very knowledgeable regarding the history of Thailand and was able to answer all questions. On this tour I saw several amazing temples, ate good food, learned history and was thoroughly entertained. Highly recommend 5/5

Tour included everything that was promised, and the tour guide spoke good english and did a good job of explaining everything. She also helped take pictures and showed us the best spots with the least tourists. We had plenty of time at each of the locations, but were still home earlier than planned.
