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.

From Chiang Mai: Chiang Dao Cave Trekking Full-Day Tour

2. From Chiang Mai: Chiang Dao Cave Trekking Full-Day Tour

Get picked up from your hotel in Chiang Mai city center and head off on a day trip to Chiang Dao. Begin with a visit to the Chiang Dao Cave (Wat Tham Chiang Dao), which is without a doubt one of the area's most fascinating sites. Five limestone caverns invite visitors to uncover the beautiful stalactites, stalagmites, Buddha statues, and offerings from faithful pilgrims. After paying a small entrance fee, the tour begins through a system of interconnected caverns extending over seven miles into the heart of the mountain. Expect cooler air in here, although hot days may create humid conditions at times. Some of the caves are illuminated by electric lights. Here you'll find Buddha statues, including a 13-foot reclining one. Don’t miss the row of five seated Buddhas in the first cavern, which many travelers find particularly impressive. After the cave adventure, the next stop is the Chiang Dao market to gorge on delicious local meals before heading to the Buatong Sticky Waterfall, one of the most unique waterfalls in Thailand. One impressive feature of this natural wonder is the sticky mineral deposits that allow visitors to actually climb up the waterfall without falling off, with the help of a safety rope. This is definitely a great way to cool off after a long day of your trip. Afterward, relax on a complimentary transfer back to your hotel in Chiang Mai city.

From Chiang Mai: Lamphun and Lampang Temples Tour

3. From Chiang Mai: Lamphun and Lampang Temples Tour

Begin with complimentary hotel pickup from Chiang Mai for a day spent in the less-crowded historical cities of Lamphun and Lampang. The tour's first stop is Wat Phra That Lampang Luang, said to be one of the best examples of Lanna-style architecture in the country. The temple complex houses a historical museum, massive brick gate, intricately-painted viharas, a sand-filled courtyard, bronze and copper stupas, all in a tranquil setting. Next, choose to jump on a horse cart — after all, Lampang is known throughout Thailand as "Horse Cart City." It is the only town in the country where these carriages are still found. A 15 to 30-minute tour around town will take you along the Wang River or past the city's quintessential sights. After lunch, head to Wat Prathat Hariphunchai, a fantastic 9th-century temple complex by the river. Said to be Lamphun’s largest, oldest, and most attractive temple compound, Hariphunchai Temple got its name from the Mon Kingdom city that ruled this part of northern Thailand from the 9th to 13th centuries. The final stop is Wat Chammathewi Temple, home to a stupa surrounded by arches holding 60 Buddha statues; Queen Chama Devi’s ashes are said to be found inside. The unusual square "stepped pyramid" pagoda is the oldest surviving example of its kind from the Dvaravati period, the family of which ruled much of Thailand from the 6th to 11th centuries. After the day is completed, relax on a transfer back to your hotel in Chiang Mai city.

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.

A lot of time spent on the road (is what it is - it’ll be much nicer when the highway is finished!) but well worth the time. Really spectacular temples really unlike any other I’ve seen. Sammy, our guide, was really friendly and knowledgeable and super chilled with time and has a really comfortable vehicle too which was great :)

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 :)

Real nice trip. Beautiful temples, great guide and good driver, which you'll be happy about seeing as it is a long trip.

Very nice tour... puma is very nice... It's really worth it just the white temple itself
