I had definitely been Wat-ed out at this point after seeing Bangkok and Ayutthaya, but I really enjoyed the monk chat. I spent about an hour and a half with the monks, and could have done another hour and a half (or more) if I hadn't had an appointment somewhere else.

This temple has a real sense of age, and of scale. It's also very easy to get to, so if you're staying in Chiangmai you can probably walk there.

This is the King of Thailand's favourite temple and it shows as the amount of gold covering the temple is unbelievable
