Chiang Rai Temples Private Tour from Chiang Mai with Lunch
From US$107.00

Visit the magnificent temples of Chiang Rai on a full-day, private-tour from Chiang Mai to a series of iconic Buddhist sites. Enjoy the flexibility of a private driver/guide throughout the day as you visit Wat Sang Kaew Photiyarn, Wat Rong Khun, Wat Huai Pla Kung, and more, with a break for lunch in a local restaurant. This 13-hour temple tour from Chiang Mai includes pickup and drop-off at city hotels, lunch, and entrance fees, and it’s a fun, personal way to explore the sites of northern Thailand.

What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Chiang Mai for 7am departure to Chiang Rai then a 1 hour drive with a break to stretch your legs at a local hot spring.

The first stop of the day is Wat Sang Kaew Photiyarn where you'll see an enormous monument and temple built by a monk named Kruba Aritachat Arijittto. Next visit Wat Rong Khun, the White Temple, whose exterior is covered with tiny mirrors that shimmer in the sunlight.

A path leads you inside  passing by a fire where thousands of hands reach out for mercy.  Following your time at Wat Rong Khun, pause for lunch at a local restaurant. 

Next, proceed to the Red Temple Wat Huai Pla Kung, a Chinese temple with 9 floors, each with different images of the Buddha (not wheelchair accessible.)

The final stop will be at Wat Rong Sauten to see the blue chapel. Then, you'll begin the return trip to Chiang Mai where this tour concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.
