Thailand, like much of South East Asia, is blessed with a plethora of temples and wats to explore.

From the magnificent temples of Bagan in Myanmar, to the huge Angkor Wat complex in Cambodia, there is so much on offer. In Chiang Mai, we didn’t have to walk far, literally stumbling into Wat Phan Tao a mere block from our guesthouse!White Temple Chiang RaiMany of the temples are still working temples, and we often saw monks go about their daily lives around us as we marvelled at the architecture and beauty of the temples. We also visited Wat Doy Suthep in Chiang Mai.  White Temple Chiang RaiWhite Temple Chiang RaiThe 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! White Temple Chiang RaiWhite Temple Chiang RaiWhite Temple Chiang RaiWe absolutely loved visiting temples and wats in Thailand, and would highly recommend taking some time out to see some if you’re ever in Thailand!
