Visit the Ancient and Sacred Temple at Wat Pa Sak Chiang Saen
Wat Pa Sak Chiang Saen was established during Phra Phaya Saen Phu in 1930. This famous temple was erected to house artifacts with 300 teak trees planted around it. Architecture in the Dvaravati era has been a blend of art and architecture. Chinese art was a source of inspiration for several of the stucco designs.

Taste the Best Glutinous Rice in Thailand
Khao Niew Khiaw Ngoo Glutinous Rice is a local grain grown in the area historically known as Chiang Saen plains. The agriculture area covers Mae Chan, Chiang Saen, Mae Sai, Mae Fah Luang, and Doi Luang in the present day. This is where the country’s best glutinous rice is farmed. Because of sufficient water and hot springs in Pa Tung, minerals have accumulated in the watershed for millions of years.
