We visited the temple with our friends and toured around the temple. Try to avoid the tourists from everywhere since everyone wants to pay a visit to the famous Abort. The tourists can eat inexpensive vegetarian lunch at the temple.

Just an awe inspiring place to visit. The White Buddha is spectacular, puts Phuket’s Big Buddha to shame. The Pagoda is stunning. Make sure you climb to the top. Put this on your must do list in Chiang Rai.
