Thailand, like much of South East Asia, is blessed with a plethora of temples and wats to explore, and in Chiang Mai we set off to find the first of our trip. We didn’t have to walk far, literally stumbling into Wat Phan Tao a block from our guesthouse!
Many of the temples are still working temples, and we often saw monks go about their daily lives around us as we marveled at the architecture and beauty of the temples. We also visited Wat Doy Suthep in Chiang Mai.
The White Temple of Chiang Rai
We were lucky to fit in a visit to Chiang Rai as we made our way from Chiang Mai to the border with Laos, and saw the most impressive temple of our trip to date. The stunning White Temple of Chiang Rai!
We absolutely loved visiting temples and wats in Thailand, and would highly reccomend taking some time out to see some if you’re ever in Thailand!
