Am excellent start to the day. Nong was a very friendly, organised and informative guide. We were picked up on time as arranged, Nong is knowledgeable and will explain the history and tell stories around the temples’ origins and development. The tour was a pleasure- highly recommend. Thank you Nong.

Definitely this was the highlight of our tour to Chiang Mai. Early morning one was definitely worth it as the temple wasn't that crowded and we got to hear the Monks chanting in the morning as well. Clouds were not favorable to us due to rain the previous night. So we didn't get to see the sunrise that clearly. Wat Pha Lat is one of the best experiences I've had in a temple with the morning mist, monks cleaning the place and a small waterfall to meditate, it was a surreal experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Non, our tour guide was such a friendly and nice person. I would definitely recommend the morning tour for this one!

First of all: wonderful experience! Our tourguide Nong is fluent in English by Thai standards and a funny and kind man. He is also very knowlegdable and knows every little detail about the temples but also about different subjects we asked him about! The trip starts early but it's really worth the early wake up call! You startvat the top of the mountain with a view over ChiangMai and luckily the weather wasn't too bad so we could see very far! Must be amazing when there's still clouds at all, but still a great view nonetheless. Highly recommend you book with Nong and listen to the stories he has to tell!
