Quiet time at small Wat. Not big Wat as compared to other Wats across Thailand. If you happen to be across this area, then its alright to visit the Wat and have some quiet time.

We had arranged an individual tour around the sights of Chiang Rai, the Golden Triangle through Chai Machete Tours and came here for a look round. Much smaller and quieter than its counterpart in Chiang Mai. Nice and peaceful.

Enjoyed this temple that we passed on our self temple hopping trip around Chiang Rai! Great details and a good visit, despite the construction happening around.

I agree with the first reply. There are hotels/hostels located near by. Chiang Rai is a small city, most temples are located near the city center. Ask your hotel for a map of the city and let them mark where the temples... More
