I have read good reviews about this place, and how it is possible to rent bicycles and explore on your own. However, we were unable to do that. Not many tuk tuk drivers know about this place, and they generally charge very expensive, as they said its very far. From map, it was 5km from the city centre. But in... More

Peaceful and reflective temple to visit. We were fortunate that there was no one else about. There were a couple of stalls but no one bothered you.

Horse Riding stroll around Wiang Kum Kam is the best choice to spend your 45 minutes. The Rider was amazing. Some historical temple were build more than 2000 years ago. Recommended to spend 45 minutes to take some pictures and enjoy the horse ride. You can ride tuk tuk or motorbike or a car to go around Wiang Kum Kam.... More
