    Buddhism lesson and meditation practice
    The teacher speaks really good English and has a lot of knowledge. He's funny and delivers his knowledge in an easy way. It was a fun way to relax and slow down from a fast paced life. Highly recommend!!!

    Definitely worth going if you want to learn more about Buddhism and meditation
    Attending the 1-day meditation retreat was one of the best things I experienced in Chiang Mai. If you’re open to new ideas and learning new skills, I highly recommend to pay a visit. KK did a fantastic job at explaining the basics of Buddhism as well as meditation specifically. The meditation sessions themselves were good fun. Last but not least, talking to different monk students provided great insight into what their life looks like.

    Highly recommended!
    I couldn’t recommend this experience enough to anyone who visits chiang Mai. The opportunity to learn about the basics of Buddhism and meditation from a monk is truly priceless. If you’re looking forward to a different experience, you have to visit Monkchat.

    life changing experience
    Great find, meaningful and unqiue experience to learn about culture! Pra K.K.managed to explain a philosophy in a very interesting way , much simplier to understand through his introduction. loved the meditation exercise s which I had chance to practise twice during my one day course. Many atttendees are begginers, it would be good to shorten the waiting time (2 pretty long breaks plus 1.5 hours self arranged lunch), but use it for more an interactive session asking people how do we feel before or after meditation, any problem we face when doing so, that would be highly appreciated!

    A must do in Chiang Mai!
    Phra KK is an animated and intelligent man! His english is fluent, as well Italian and Spanish that he incorporated for certain guests as our group was incredibly diverse! He went over Buddhist philosophy and principles as well as mindful and concentrated mediation techniques. The perfect way to spend a day and crash course these concepts as a beginner!

    Monk Chat on Fridays is by far the best thing you can do while visiting northern Thailand.
    🎬 Spending a Friday at the Monk Chat in Chiang Mai is the quickest, most fun and intensive way to learn about Buddhism and meditation. This is by far the best thing you can do while visiting northern Thailand. These are small teachings given by a brilliant monk who speaks good English. 🎬 Go on a Fridays if you can, as Phra KK, the founder, runs the introduction to Buddhism (+ free meditations) on Fridays from 9am to 4pm. Best to book online in advance at the Monk Chat Chiang Mai website.

    Monk Chat Meditation
    Monk Chat, go to meditate for one full day and walk carefully with a monk. Buy things to present him with the necessities of daily life. It was great. Congratulations to this beautiful temple. Is amazing...

    A brilliant day learning out Buddhism & meditation
    This was a brilliant day and I learned so much. The monk leading the one day meditation course was excellent. Do not miss this course if you are in Chiang Mai. I’ve been on a number of meditation courses, but this was one of the most enjoyable and interesting.

    Fascinating
    This is such an amazing and unique experience, I learned so much about meditation and Buddhism, and also learned about Thai culture and life in Thailand. It didn't feel preachy, and although a half day sounds like a long time, I never felt bored. Plus, it's free, though you should make a donation. Do book online, the course I did seemed to be full

This is a really wonderful place where you can relax and learn to enjoy every moment of your life. It is an amazing experience to learn about the lifestyle of Buddhist monks by offering food and interacting with the monks.

One of the best things to do in Chiang Mai! I learnt a lot about the Buddhist way of life and meditation and absolutely enjoyed the day. From my point of view, a 100% recommendation for Chiang Mai.
