We went in later afternoon, and it was not too busy. I loved this temple. It was so much more impressive than I expected, and I would love to return in the future to see the progress.

Every tourist will go to the White Palace and there's a reason for it. It's just a great building. You just have to go. There might be some times during the day less crowded, but I don't know that times.

It's a beautiful white temple but due to peak tourist season in January, very hard to take a photo without human being background. But overall, it's a charming, beautiful white temple.

If you are going to Chiang Rai this place is one of the two unmissable sites in my view. To think it is only 20 years old and the construction and imagination are incredible. One of the only reasons to visit Chiang Rai.

Much depends on the individual, some look at it in awe, some would just be there for pictures. For ladies with shorts, you may rent a white sarong at the shop outside for a small fee.

Great place to add to Thailand's many beautiful Wats. Artistry and imagination not to be missed. Touch of humor only a plus.

The artistic detail in this temple is incredible. Although the temple grounds are relatively small, there is a lot to see. As usual, it is much cheaper and more enjoyable if you see the temple without a tour. If you go before 11am or in the evening you will miss most of the crowds. Just hop on the bus from... More
