One of my favourite activities in all of Thailand (that and Ayutthaya) and this was my highlight in Chiang Rai (from Chiang Mai). This place is a must-see for any tourist visit Thailand, especially if you are in Chiang Mai. The modern artwork inside the temple is also quite interesting because it combines Buddhism and modernity. The Golden Triangle boat ride is also worthwhile to know about the history/geography of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar.

Luis was a great tour guide. Not only was he extremely friendly, but also super knowledgeable about a broad range of topics, from ancient temples to modern Asian politics. We had a great day with some good traditional Thai food in between, and saw beautiful attractions from the White Temple to the Mekong River. We highly recommend this trip and Luis, as well as the driver.

Travelling time approximately 8h in total as we have to travel all the way to the border. Ms Bee was very informative and willingly answer questions that we had. The van that we took was comfortable which made the long travelling time bearable. Lunch was also good. Enjoyed my time!

Wonderful excursion with a great lunch. Our guide Tui was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of interesting information.

Fantastic trip. The guide was excellent and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend it.
