    What an amazing and peaceful place this is. It's a very nice hike to the top (temple and view point), in a very quiet area. At the bottom there is a table with (packed) food. It is very appreciated if...  more »

    Very nice temple who has kept his true destination. It's a beautiful walk. Does climb 600 steps to fend off 90% of mass tourism which is a great thing. Even in the rainy season, the show is striking.

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.
