Chiang Rai

With the Blue and White Temples anchoring its fertile land, Chiang Rai is everything you look for in a Thai city.

Fresh onlookers to the serene city of Chiang Rai immediately realize that it does not rest upon the promise of tourism. Despite boasting over a dozen major attractions, Chiang Rai is a laid-back town set in a soul-soothing landscape. What makes this idyllic destination a must-visit in every Thai itinerary is its fun-fair-like temples. The Blue and White Temples alone shape its narrative, while countless smaller architectural highlights dot its verdant land.

Unreal curves make it look like a flamboyant wedding cake. Outside, the glimmering pond and emerald countryside add to its fairytale-like vibes. The white-washed Wat Rong Khun temple is simply ravishing. It is a symbol of elegance among the region’s dramatic colors. Yet, it doesn’t lack their boldness with its exceptional design. Catch it at sunset if you can, and you will have the ultimate shot of your trip to Thailand. On the other side of the town, its indigo twin doesn’t raise expectations any less. Wat Rong Suea Ten, or the Blue Temple, will overwhelm your sight almost as much as the White Temple. Beyond their aesthetic appeal, these matchless monuments are also representatives of local architectural feat. 

Some few miles away, the village of Akha is a rewarding addition to your Chiang Rai tour. The hill tribe village has everything quintessentially Southeast Asian. A visit will offer you a change in perspective from the Buddhist culture and take you back to your earthbound roots. It is the best place to mingle with locals and crown your trip with some hearty conversations.
