hkskyline's 2019 in Chiang Mai

Northern Thailand is a world away from the bustle of Bangkok or the crowded beaches of Phuket. You come here to enjoy the temples, cooler weather, and mountains. Map out your walking tour and most temples are within a short walk of each other. However, do make use of the Grab cars when the weather gets too hot and you need an air-conditioning break.

Wat Chiang Man is the city's oldest temple and was established in the late 13th century. The best part is out back so be sure to walk further into the site.













Wat Phan Tao is quite unique with a teak interior that distinguishes it from other temples.







Next door is Wat Chedi Luang, a grander temple whose chedi was built in the 15th century. This must be a key sight in the city, with bus-loads of tourists as well as clearly-marked admission lanes.

















Wat Phra Singh is the city's most revered temple with plenty of gold in its well-manicured grounds.

Yes, the temples in Thailand, Myanmar, and Cambodia are all so different even though they are next to each other.

Wat U Mong has its chedi rise above a brick platform with passageways inside. This temple dates from the late 14th century and is well worth a look.
