This temple was a really nice surprise. Please pay attention to the drawings inside the temple they are beautifull and tell a story. This temple is good to be visited with a guide

It really is breathtaking and easy to get to on a tuk tuk if staying in Chaing Rai. Just 50 baht on arrival to get in and as you do with most temples, you must have your shoulders and legs covered past the knees. You...More

This was such a gorgeous sight. I’ve never seen something so white in Thailand and it stood out beautifully. To learn that the owner of this doesn’t take huge donations and takes all equal ones so that not one single person can put their name...More

One of the best Temples I saw in Thailand, but make sure you get there early as when we were leaving the place was packed. A must see when traveling to Thailand, I was completely mind blown with its beauty.

Basically a huge white "temple" swarming with Chinese tourists with selfie sticks. The entrance to the main building has a funky thing representing hell I guess with hands reaching up. That was cool. And the interior is strange, with all kind of pop characters and...More

We are far from huge fans of temples, but this is one that’s completely different from the standard temple you would normally see Designed and built by a modern artist / architect it has a modern take on the centuries old Buddhist faith. Quirky in...More

IF art is meant to challenge people's perceptions of the world around them then I really don't know where to start with the White Temple. I was making my second visit there in five months and, even though I knew what to expect, I still...More

It was an interesting spot- but have to say that I was disappointed. I did not expect the temple to be new. Plus- there were TONS of tour groups there. Just my take on it. I don't think I would go back. BUT- I prefer... More
