The Coolest Things To Do  in Chiang Rai

By Polyglot Petra 2/4/24

Chiang Rai, thanks to the famous White Temple, is one of the most popular destinations for visitors to Thailand.  But did you know what else you could do there? Let's take a look!


The newest addition to the stunning collection of temples...

Open to the public in 2016, it is much less frequented than the White Temple.

From 7am-8pm daily, visitors can enter the grounds for FREE.

Phahee Village

One of the coffee-cultivating hill tribes an hour north of Chiang Rai

Go early in the morning or stay the night before to get this view for your morning coffee. If you hit a jackpot, there will be cloud inversions!

Phahee Village Location: 20.3511631, 99.8249426

Baan Dam

Or The Black House, is culturally opposite of the White Temple

It is actually not a temple, but a museum, filled with lifelong art and woodwork collections of a renown artist, Thawan Duchanee.

Consisting of over 40 pitch-black wooden buildings in the Thai traditional style, it is quite a sight to behold.
