Full description
Explore Chiang Mai’s more popular temples with a Tuk Tuk and take a stroll through the eclectic and colorful Warorot Street Market in this half-day tour. The first stop will be Wat Chedi Luang. Known as the “Temple of the Big Stupa”, this 700+-year-old temple, famous for its Lanna-inspired designs, was once the home of the much-revered Emerald Buddha statue. Take a visit there today and you'll see a replica version which was a donation from the Thai king.  Pass by the 3 Kings Monument, a shrine named after the three founders of Chiang Mai, before moving on to Wat Phra Singh temple. One of the more venerated temples in Chiang Mai, Wat Phra Singh was built in the 14th century and is famous for its northern Thai designs and impeccable gardens. Next, visit the Tha Phae Gate. A famous landmark for locals and visitors alike, it was once part of a high-bricked defensive wall that surrounded the city. Discover the host of bars, restaurants, and hotels within walking distance. After wandering around the gate, visit Wat Srisuphan, or the Silver Temple which was named after its ornate silver-colored designs. Before the day ends, stop at Warorot Market or Muang Mai Street Market and shop for local street food or produce.

We had an absolutely amazing experience, sweet driver and guide. We saw the perfect amount of temples, and we got some exciting history about both the temples, but also the history of Northern Thailand. We also got to see some different food markets. All in all, it was a very actual experience that my boyfriend and I can definitely recommend to others.

Great tour of the main temples of the city, no doubt our guide Tim is a great professional. We learned a lot from this tour! I definitely recommend the tour to learn a little more about the history of the city. Thanks for everything Tim and our excellent tuk tuk driver.

A wonderful day with May, who told us so much worth knowing about Chiang Mai and the temples. The driver Pim did a good job too. We would definitely recommend the tour, it was one of the highlights of the trip.
