This temple may not be traditional, but it is beautiful and full of amazing art! It's worth it to pay to go inside even though you can't take photos. The artwork inside is surprising (with paintings including Neo and others from movies), but it all...More

Amazing design, construction, and very artistic! A bit crowded because it is one of the major attractions in Chiang Rai, but it's worth your tourist time. Many food vendors around the area, so great place to just hang out too. Check it out if you're...More

The white temple is not to be missed when travelling through Chiang Rai. The building was beautiful and our guide gave excellent explanations and history behind all the buildings. The only thing I hated about the place was the chinese tourists. Too many of them!

To enter the temple you must have shoulders and knees covered. Although it is privately owned it is respected as a sacred place.

It also depends on the weather. If it is raining in that evening, then maybe the place closes earlier.
