Climbing 300 step staircase to worship a remarkable white Buddha statue and see panoramic view of Pai city.

Wat Phra That Mae Yen is the landmark of Pai as you can see the big white buddha from far far away. When we climbed to the top of stone ladders and we found that the mountain view was really stunning, it's a must go place when you visited Pai county.

Under the blazing hot sun, we climbed up the flight of stairs to reach the White Buddha. The White Buddha unfortunately is broken in many places such as the fingers, the ears etc. We stayed for a short while as there wasn't many shaded places to stay around for long.

One would need to wear properly such as no shorts, no singlets and remove their shoes.

A good place to enjoy a view over the town and the valley. Free to enter. Gets crowded during the sunset.

It is not far away from Pai and there is also no entrance fee. Women will have to dress “politely” with a long skirt or something else to hide your legs. They are more relaxed when it comes to men, as I have been able to get up there with swim shorts.

Stairs are not that hard to get up and the view is really nice. Buddha has been under restoration the time we have visited it and it is view worthy, if it is your first temple.

For us, it has been one of many, so there was no special markup for us. If you got time, it is still quite nice to visit it.

PS: I would take socks with me on warm weather. At the top no shoes are allowed and the ground heats up easily and gets quite hot for bare feet.

While in Pai you may wanna see a nice temple with a view. This is an easy 5 minute drive from town and an easy walk up to the top. It's ok.

Would recommend renting some scooters and going up to the Buddha! It’s a short and easy ride from the centre of Pai and offers incredible views at sunset. The light up there is amazing!

The view is beautiful! There are quite a few steps, but it’s not unbearable. I would recommend going in the cooler season and on a cloudy day. Also, don’t forget your sunscreen & walking shoes!

It was very beautiful! Maybe I wasn’t as blown away based on other temples I’ve been to around Thailand, but for pai, it is probably the best! Not very far, not a hike but a lot of stairs. Gorgeous view!! Would suggest that you go during sunrise or sunset if possible. Don’t think you’d need two hours but it’s a great place to pray or meditate
