If you have time in Pai, the Temple on the Hill is worth a visit! You'll have a nice view on Pai and the White Buddha is worth seeing. Unfortunately it was quite cloudy when we were there to see the sun set.

The walk from Pai to the temple is about 2km but is definietly worth it. Standing at the top by the buddha allows you to see an amazing view of Pai and is particularly special when no one else is up there! Unfortunately the other...More

The White Buddha sits on top of the hill in Pai. You can see it from all over Pai. IT looms over the valley. It was easy to find, up a winding road...and i thought it was just magical. Beautiful , huge white Buddha...fabulous

Didn't visit the temple but made the climb to the white Buddha. Not too challenging but the hangover we were sporting sure made it tough. Views from the top are magnificent and the towering Buddha is a great sight.

It takes some effort to reach the top but the views make it worth wile! The white buddha itself is in it's own way special.

White Buddha is a popular site to see in Pai. You can spot it from afar when you are driving or walking. Hidden up on the mountain it can be an intense amount of stairs, but the view of Pai and the gorgeous buddha is...More

No, you need to climb the stairs. However the view is better from the small temple at the bottom of the staircase.
