  • Magnificent complex of temples that really is impressive. Beautiful wood carving wall and structure. Colorful dragon and animal creatures in front of every temple. Bluish main temple that really stands out majestically, the reason why people just simply call this place blue temple. It's about 1 hour drive from Chiang Mai and worth to visit. One of the most beautiful place I've been in Chiang Mai.
  • Very clean and well maintained. The details of the temples are awesome, especially the craving work. Love that there's no donation pushing activities.... We can walk peacefully admiring the buildings and donate whenever / wherever we want to, no lottery selling in side the temple, please dress properly. No shorts or mini skirts, shoulders covered and leave your dogs at home. I recommend you start from the temple at the far end, walk pass the shop and start from there, bring comfortable shoes because you will have to take off the shoes and wear them again often... Bring your shoes with you to each building, so you don't need to come back to get them back when you finish the last building.
