Chiang Mai: White Temple, Baan Dam Museum and Blue Temple Full Day Tour

10 hours
This tour is suitable for those who don't have much time to visit Chiang Rai. You'll head out from Chiang Mai and visit Chiang Rai's iconic landmarks - from White Temple to Baan Dam Museum and Blue Temple. 
The tour starts at 7-7:30 AM with the pick-up from your hotel. The first location on our itinerary is White Temple or Wat Rong Khun. Rong Khun Temple is unique from other temples in that it has been constructed entirely in a radiant white color with sparking reflections from mirrored glass mosaics embedded in the white plaster. The temple is the idea of Mr. Chalermchai Kositpipat, one of Thailand most renowned artists, who wanted to build a temple all in white to signify the purity of Lord Buddha. Next, we head to Baan Dam Museum. Part art studio, part museum, part home, Baan Dam is an eclectic mix of traditional northern Thai buildings interspersed with some outlandish modern designs. Baan Dam is a thought-provoking combination of sanuk, the surreal and the sombre and whilst it’s fair to say that some of the artwork and themes on display won’t be to everybody’s liking, we’d still recommend checking out the Black House if you are visiting Chiang Rai. Finally, we visit Blue Temple or Wat Rong Seua Ten.  It is a recent temple which is still under construction, but the main hall is now completed. It has a  magnificent blue interior with a large white Buddha that marks the spirits. The paintings are reminiscent of the style of what you can see inside the White Temple. You'll also have the option to visit one of the numerous Karen Long Neck villages in Thailand, which is one of the most exotic experiences on the planet. The mystery and beauty that sound the tradition of using brass rings for exaggerated jewelry is something better seen in person than in a book. Another option is The Golden Triangle - The area where the borders of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar meet at the confluence of the Ruak and Mekong rivers.  Along with Afghanistan in the Golden Crescent, it has been one of the most extensive opium-producing areas of Asia, and of the world, since the 1950s. Most of the world's heroin came from the Golden Triangle until the early 21st century when Afghanistan became the world's largest producer.
