1. WAT RONG KHUN
Wat Rong Khun is one of Thailand’s most special and famous temples (more commonly known as the White Temple to foreigners).
The temple is open for visitors since 1997. An artist from Chiang Rai, named Chalermchai Kositpipat, completely rebuilt a temple and created the White Temple. Every detail of the temple has meaning.
The temple is the one thing you cannot miss! If you visit here in the evening, I recommend you wait till the sunset to get great shots with an incredibly beautiful view.
2. WAT RONG SEUR TEN
More commonly known as the Blue Temple to foreigners. The name Wat Rong Suea Ten actually translates to Tiger Temple, named for the tigers that once roamed the area.
This Blue Temple is as special as the White Temple. The artist that created the Blue Temple, Putha Kabkaew, was a student of the artist that designed the White Temple, Chalermchai Kositpipat.
The blue and golden colors of the temple make for great vivid pictures. Since the temple is famous, it can be very crowded. However, there are still quiet areas that you can get plenty of photos without other disturbing.
3. WAT SANG KAEW PHOTHIYAN
Wat Sang Kaew Phothiyan is more commonly known as the Lotus Temple to foreigners. It is the perfect stop on your way to Chiang Rai.
The temple scenery is beautiful and when you look down you can see the whole district of Mae Suay and many of its sub-districts. Sang Kaew Phothiyan is translated as, “A lotus that sprouts and emerged from the water and emits light like a sparkling gem with brilliant light.
