  • Not too inaccessible, the path is quiet, with plenty of room for nature sounds to prevail. The road is also bordered with essential teachings of the Buddha, with nearly impeccable English.  more »
  • It's not an ordinary wat, but at the top in the cave it looks like inside a temple. The walk up the stairs is easy, shadowed by the many very tall trees. It's absolutely worth a visit.  more »

Where to stay in Chiang Dao

Chiang Dao lodgings range from backpacker rooms to cozy resorts, so there is something for every budget. The town remains a perfect getaway for tourists wanting to escape crowds and explore Thailand's untamed wilderness, and some guesthouses are set in the jungle to provide easy access to those unspoiled areas. In true Thai spirit, guesthouses are warmly decorated and run by friendly staff, though many rooms often share bathrooms and offer no air conditioning. If you plan to visit at the peak of the season, reserve your accommodations in advance and expect higher prices for both rooms and bike rentals.
