Það sem verður gert

The main attraction of this tour is the White Temple. If you’re looking for ancient ruins, you might be surprised to find a modern architectural masterpiece designed and built by local artist Chaloemchai Khositphiphat.

The Blue Temple or Wat Rong Seua Ten literally translates to ‘temple of the dancing tiger.’ It was built on a site where tigers were said to have jumped over the river.

If the White Temple was meant to be a stairway to heaven, the Black House has been called a “dark, mysterious, and almost sadistic” representation of hell, complete with preserved animals and a collection of bones.

Built by Thailand national artist Thawan Duchanee (who incidentally was the mentor of Chaloemchai, the White Temple guy), the Baan dam Museum (Black House) is a cluster of nearly 40 small shadowy structures exhibiting art dating back to the Ayutthaya period. This is truly something the likes of which we’ll never see anywhere else!

Visiting the temples of Chiang Rai was the highlight of my trip to Chiang Mai! Some of my friends had said the long drive was too much, but I disagree - it is 1000% worth it. Our guide Tim and driver Dear were incredible. We were picked up early in the morning around 7am and spent about an hour and a half driving before visiting a hot spring for a break. We then drove to the White Temple, which was absolutely breathtaking. Because we had some rain, Tim let us stay a little longer and we had a great lunch before driving to the Blue Temple. We then visited the Black House (basically an art museum and a beautiful example of Lanna architecture) and another Chinese temple on the way home. Tim was an amazing guide, and told us the history of each place as we drove. He also took us to the best food stops at each temple, so we were well fed the entire day. I never felt rushed at any of the temples - we had plenty of time to explore and take pictures. The drive was also very manageable, as it was broken up by stops and most people slept anyways. We arrived back in Chiang Mai around 8pm - a long but wonderful day!

5 stars! I booked a trip to see some of the temples in Chiang Rai from Chiang Mai. To set things straight, this is not an ‘up close and personal’ Airbnb experience by Mattanaporn, as she subcontracts to a third party, in my case with Trip Guru. I believe you can book it directly there. Upon realizing this, I was a bit worried but decided to give it a go anyway. The trip turned out to be fantastic, and my guide was perfect. He drives very smoothly across the difficult curves of the road, while manage to keep the conversation going. He was very knowledgeable about everything local and everything Thai and an excellent English speaker. The trip turned out to be the highlight of my visit to Chiang Mai.

A brilliant trip to see the iconic three temples and museum in Chiang Rai. Its a long day trip but well worth it, seeing pictures of these places does not do it justice. We also stopped by the hot spring in Chiang Mai and another temple in Chiang Rai. Our guide Nong, was great at telling us the stories behind each places. He also helped take some really brilliant instagramable pictures too! He looked out for all our needs and took us to an excellent place for lunch!
