  • This is the largest meditation center in the north of Chiangmai, and the Jiangsu has a good reputation in the field of Zen meditation. I spent 10 days in total, and it was an experience course, complete with a 26-day course. This is a very good experience, focus on the present, focus on their own hearts, understand themselves.

  • Feels like home when I came for meditation retreat a couple months. Fantastic atmosphere during practice, kindly instructors both monks and nuns helped a lot following the meditation steps. Everyday meals are delicious and there are meaningful for life. The evening chanting on the main temple is wonderful for me. Making a triple circumambulation on the Buddhist holy day is a gorgeous.
  • Small temple. Great for meditation. Vegetarian and "normal" food. Small shop inside. Laundry service available
  • Great and peaceful temple. There is a nice coconuts icecream cafe near the main gate of the temple. You can get fantastic icecream just 30THB.
  • Coolest experience. I have never seen so many monks in my life. You can only go into the white library temple but it was great with just that and walking around the grounds.
  • Very peaceful location for a very local temple, wooden style. Probably you will be the only foreigner here. They also have a meditation center.

Where to stay in Chiang Mai

While visiting Chiang Mai, keep in mind that the old town district and the area surrounding the famous night market offer both boutique (relatively expensive) and backpacker (relatively inexpensive) options. The riverside neighborhoods boast exclusive hotels and resorts, where comparatively pricey rooms come with good views and extensive facilities.
