Chiang Rai & Golden Triangle in a day

1 review
Go sightseeing in northern Thailand on a full-day tour from Chiang Mai that includes the White Temple (Wat Rong Khun) in Chiang Rai. Stop at Hot Springs Maekasa en route, then continue to the White Temple and Baandam Museum to view work by Thai artists. Head to the Khong River Viewpoint, a Golden Triangle destination where the borders of Myanmar, Laos, and Thailand meet, then return to Chiang Mai.

Most famous as well as most revered (Buddha image) temple in Maesot, Tak Province. The temple was built by Shan Zu people in approximately year1880 influenced by Mynmar architecture, with many Hall. The main Hall " "Mahamuni" enshrined Mahamuni Buddha image which is highly revered by local people. The second attraction is the Reclining buddha image which is the second largest of the kind in the Kingdom. The third one is "the Golden Hall" with red wall decorated with golden metal plate including the statues of twin Swan, Male and female, or the upper and lower one standing in front of the Golden Hall. In the corridor at the front right hand side when entering the temple are many revered objects such as Gyun-in, "Thep Tun-Jai" or "Instant success" Diety said to be sacred. Very interesting as well as educated. Do not miss if you have a chance.

The main hotspot are the bronze lions in the main entrance - very hugh. The architecture of the temple is also purely Myanmar style. The temple is very close to border but very peacefully quiet.

One of the most beautiful Temple in the North. The temple is mixed between Thai and Burmese style. There is a huge sleeping Buddha. Maybe the biggest ever seen.

Wat Thai Wattanaram (also spelled Wat Chai Wattanaram) is one of the most bizarre Buddhist temples I have ever visited. The temple buildings, chedis and stupas are dazzlingly colourful, being built in the Burmese style of Mahayana Buddhism. The temple features a huge reclining Buddha and a marble Buddha. It was built in 1639 by King Prasat Thong in memory of his mother. But the complex includes features that belong more to a side show alley than to a Buddhist temple. There is one building dedicated to a scene of Buddhas around a water feature, with fountains and wishing wells. A standing plaster Buddha and an Apsera (heavenly figure) hold silver monk's begging bowls and move around the water on a conveyor belt. As they pass you are expected to put a monetary offering in their bowls. All this to the loud playing of modern music.
