Amazing Temple, must see tourist attraction when visit Chiang Mai. Not far away from down town area, easy to go. They have a good view of overseeing whole Chiang Mai.

Although not so well known, this Wat is a gem. To me it is nicer than Wat Phra Tat Doi Suthep. There also are far less tourists than at Doi Suthep.

Lots of Thais here making merit, receiving blessings, etc so I wouldn't call it a peaceful mountain retreat. It's good to observe though and if you've not been to Thailand before it's a must see to understand a little of local culture and religion. You...More
