Doi Inthanon National Park (Thai: อุทยานแห่งชาติดอยอินทนนท์), nicknamed “the roof of Thailand”, is in the Thanon Thong Chai Range, Chom Thong District, Chiang Mai Province, Northern Thailand. It includes Doi Inthanon, the country’s highest mountain. Established in 1972, The park is approximately 2 hours from Chiang Mai. It includes Karen and Hmong villages of about 4,500 people.

The park has varied climatic and ecologically different sections. The climate is typically tropical and fairly cool on the summit of Doi Inthanon. In winter the average temperature is 6 °C (43 °F) in January and temperatures can sometimes drop below 0 °C (32 °F). You should be ready or check the weather temperature before visiting Doi Intanon.

Today, the summit of Doi Inthanon is a popular tourist destination for both foreign and Thai tourists, with a peak of 12,000 visitors. In addition to a range of tourist facilities on the summit, there is also a Royal Thai Air Force weather radar station at the summit and the Thai National Observatory (TNO). Chedis (monuments) dedicated to Their Royal Majesties, The King, and Queen pagoda, can be found atop the peak of the mountain.

We book a private car by KLOOK Travel for a comfortable travel tour. Approximately 1 half – 2 hours to the summit from the Chiang Mai city area. The entrance fee for adults is 300 Thai baht also 30 baht if you are using a van, normal car, or motorcycle. And if you are going to King & queen pagoda another 40 baht where you can find a restroom, small shop to buy food and drinks. Maybe it’s gonna be far for you but believe me, it was an amazing and magnificent view on top. And If you are a nature lover this tour is for you. I can say it was very cold so you must prefer yourself, bring a thick jacket or wear long pants. I was ready at that time so it was not hard for me. Or you can check the weather before you go.

Top 4 best list to visit Chiang Rai in 1-day tours

Chiang Rai is a port city in northern Thailand, in the mountainous province of the same name. Chiang Rai City remains a sleepy provincial town with a pleasant atmosphere. Compared to its sister town Chiang Mai, it has a more relaxed and down-to-earth feel but is never short on historical and cultural attractions of its own. From Chiang Mai City I travel to Chiang Rai for 3 half – 4 hours by Car. I booked KLOOK Travel for private but they have also available tours for group and more good deals that suit for you. My first stop is to White Temple (Wat Rong Khun), Singha Park, Blue Temple (Wat Rong Suea Ten), lastly the Black Temple or Black House ( Baan Dam Museum).

WHITE TEMPLE ( WAT RONG KHUN) is a privately owned art exhibit style of a Buddhist temple in Chiang Rai Province, Thailand. They have Light show its called “The Illumination of White Temple” during the Light Festival. Wat Rong Khun is extremely beautiful when you see it outside. Unique Architecture and Structure. However, Wat Rong Khun is very touristic and it was crowded when the time I visit. It’s not really pleasant to go there when the other group tourists are shouting and very loud. The bridge of “the cycle of rebirth”: the main building at the white temple, the ubosot, is reached by crossing a bridge over a small lake. After crossing the bridge, the visitor arrives at the “gate of heaven”, when the visitors are not allowed to take pictures. Same in the gallery building(Golden Building) visitors are only allowed to take pictures outside. Admission for Thai nationals is free, foreigners are required to pay 100 baht and a different way to go inside.

Here is my short video of White Temple & Blue Temple.

BLUE TEMPLE ( WAT RONG SUEA TEN) Is the newest and modern Buddhist temple distinguished by its vivid blue coloring & elaborate carvings. Above all its magnificent blue interior with a large white Buddha that marks the spirits. The paintings are reminiscent of the style of what you can see inside the Blue Temple. It is a very small temple but very attractive, quiet and relaxing, unlike the white temple that is more crowded. You’ll also be expected to take off your shoes outside before entering the Blue Temple and wear proper clothes which is knees and shoulder should be cover. Wat Rong Suea Ten – Blue Temple is a temple and when you visit a temple in Thailand there are some rules to know and follow which is good to give some respect to the Buddhist. The good thing when you visit the blue temple you’re allowed to take photos inside so I’m able to share it with you. Admission is free.

SINGHA PARK Singha Park is a scenic refreshing park in a farm-like setting with tea & organic plantations, orchards & different flowers, trails, a tram & a petting zoo and more. You can find restaurants, Coffee shops, Souvenirs shop, and Clean toilet. I had my lunch here in Singha park after an almost 1-hour tour around Singha park. (See the video below) Admission Fee is 100 baht and you’ll experience by electric car they called around Singha park. Farm Tour is Open every day from 9 am – 5 pm.

Here is my video of Singha Park & Baan Dam (Black House Museam).

BLACK TEMPLE (BAAN DAM MUSEUM) This Black Museum is a collection of woods, arts, and creation by Thawan Duchanee and other thai artists. Thawan devoted his life and spent his energy almost 3 decades building Folk Art Museum and Exhibit and the architecture are very unique in terms of arts. Each building has a display of works of art to admire and clearly demonstrate the identity of A. Thawan such as buffalo horns artwork, animal bones, tiger and snakeskin, crocodile skin, beautiful woodwork carving, ornate stucco artwork that conceals a philosophy and beliefs. It created a lot of excitement and also gets new concepts through these artworks. It’s a little bit creepy for me but it was fun and surprising as you can walk with the trees around you and take a seat while resting you can grab a black or white ice cream. Sounds good right?
