From Chiang Mai: Chiang Rai Famous Temples Small Group Tour

1. From Chiang Mai: Chiang Rai Famous Temples Small Group Tour

Visit Chiang Mai’s sister city, Chiang Rai, on a 12-hour journey to visit 3 very different temples. Quirky, charming, and creative are words that could describe Chiang Rai. At the very least, this city is quite different from Chiang Mai, so join this trip to experience something quite new. Select the private option to have this experience with your friends and family only. Before you begin your tour, you’ll break up the long drive at the Mae Khachan Hot Springs to relax, dip your feet into steaming mineral water, have a snack, or walk around the gardens. Your first stop is the main attraction of the day: the White Temple. If you were expecting ancient ruins, then you might be surprised to find a modern architectural masterpiece designed and built by a local artist, Chaloemchai Khositphiphat. People say he spent over $40 million of his own money to create this unconventional art exhibit and through it, gain immortal life.   After exploring this Temple, head to the next stop, the Blue Wonder. Locally known as Wat Rong Seua Ten, this translates to “temple of the dancing tiger”, because it was built on a site where tigers were said jump over the river.   If the White Temple could be called the stairway to heaven, the Black House has been called a “dark, mysterious, and almost sadistic” place, complete with preserved animals and a collection of bones. Built by national artist Thawan Duchanee, the Black House (also called the Baan Dam Museum) is a cluster of nearly 40 shadowy structures exhibiting art dating back to the Ayutthaya period. After fully admiring these 3 very different structures, you'll be taken back to Chiang Mai.

What people are saying about Chiang Rai (Province)

This was a well organized and wondrous experience. The guide was super clear and took us to some of the most stunning locations in Chiang Rai - giving us a little history as we went. It was also a beautiful drive through the winding mountains - lots of rice paddies to be seen. The van was very comfortable with cushion seats, air conditioning, and music.

My guide (Mr Parnatee) was fantastic! He knew so much at every stop, and was very attentive to all of my questions and requests for the tour. I had an amazing time in Chiang Rai, and I strongly recommend this trip to anyone wanting a one day trip.

It’s not our first time we booked a tour with Get Your Guide. Once in Nice and now in Chiang Mai. Everything was prompt and nicely organised, our guide Corn was very engaging and friendly and very well prepared :)

It was a great and excellent trip. Niran has a deep knowledge of the region and was really kind and friendly. I highly recommend the trip! Many thanks! I am looking forward to see you again.

Best guided experience ever! Cannot recommend enough
