Chiang Rai Day Trip from Chiang Mai City
From US$62.41
Overview
No visit to Chiang Mai is complete without seeing Wat Rong Khun, better known as the White Temple. Travel to the landmark with ease on a hassle-free day trip from Chiang Mai, ideal for first-time visitors with limited time. In just one day, tick off the 7th-century Chiang Saen and the Golden Triangle, and take a boat ride on the Khong River. Enjoy the convenience of hotel pickup and drop-off in an air-conditioned minivan, and receive personalized attention from your guide in a small group limited to nine people.
What to Expect

This guided tour begins with pickup from your Chiang Mai hotel. Board an air-conditioned minivan destined for the Chiang Rai province. During the journey, make a short stop at the Mae Khachan Hot Spring (Wiang Po Po).

Continue to Wat Rung Khun aka the White Temple. Your next stop is Chiang Saen, a river town replete with ancient temple ruins. Here, you get the chance to break for a buffet lunch.

Absorb views of the Golden Triangle, the name given to where the borders of Laos, Thailand, and Myanmar intersect, and relax during a boat ride on the Khong River.

After a short stop at the Hall of Opium, return to your Chiang Mai hotel.

Wat Rong Khun popularly known as White Temple.

Beautiful architecture by "Ajarn Chalermchai" and very well made and maintained. His own art museum across the road is a must see. Many tourists do not go as it is a 3 to 4 hours drive from Chaing Mai to Chiangrai.

Beautiful and a must see

The temple was no let down. The story behind the artist who created the temple is interesting and the murals inside the temple are so beautiful. His touch of modern icons depicted in the murals was unexpected (batman, star wars, marilyn monroe, Brad Pitt, Avatar,...More
