Visiting the Wat Phra Haripunchai in Lamphun

Temples in North Thailand
Wat Phra Haripunchai in Lamphun, North Thailand

While on our way to Chiang Mai we did visit the Wat Phra Haripunchai in Lamphun. This is about 20 km south of Chiang Mai city and about 3 km from the highway. It is a 12th century old temple build in different styles. Lamphun itself is a lovely little old town with history and culture. It makes a great day trip from Chiang Mai, or like we did perfect for a stop on your way to Chiang Mai.

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
