Wat Rong Khun
Surely this what you came for? Looking like something out of a Thai Fairy tale and a must see for anyone visiting Thailand, Wat Rong Khun also Known as the 'White Temple' is a project of well-known Thai artist Chalermchai Kosipipat. The temple represents a paradise like heaven with the glistening all-white exterior representing the purity of the Buddha.

Construction began in 1997, officially completing in 2008 however new elements are still being added which are expected to complete by 2070!

Wat Rong Suea Ten
After Lunch we will visit our second temple, Wat Rong Suea Ten, translating to “Temple of the Dancing Tiger” but better known as the 'Blue temple'.

Another ancient temple once stood here, and tigers are said to have roamed freely over the grounds when it was abandoned nearly a century ago.

The local village decided to rebuild the temple in 1996 and began construction in 2005 which was officially completed in 2016, but like the White Temple, The Blue Temple is still considered a work in progress. Considered a must see!

Wat Huay Pla Kang
Our final stop is at Wat Huay Pla Kang, also known as “ The Big Buddha of Chiang Rai”.

This is known for its enormous white statue of Guanyin. The temple sits in a beautiful surrounding on a hill in the rural area of Northern Chiang Mai.

Wat Huay Pla Kang is a mix of Thai Lanna and Chinese styles. On the grounds are a huge statue of Guanyin, a nine tiered pagoda and a Thai temple.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Longneck Karen Village
An optional visit to the Karen Village giving you the opportunity to meet the tribe known to wear long brass rings stacked on their neck hence the name 'longneck'.

Some say the neck rings were worn to protect the villagers from attacking tigers as they typically lived in rural jungle regions and others say it was to make the women seem unattractive to invading soldiers so the women wouldn't be taken away. Take the opportunity to ask them yourself, meet and interact with them in their homes.
