Temples in Chiang Rai

Temples in Thailand
Wat Ming Muang, Chiang Rai - North Thailand

While I was in Chiang Rai in North Thailand I had lunch with a friend who is living in Chiang Rai. And as he is very knowledgeable about temples, Buddhism and art we did visit 2 less visited temples in Chiang Rai town. First the Wat Ming Muang and later the Wat Phra Kaew that houses also a beautiful museum in a teak wooden building. Both temples are in Chiang Rai town, near the Golden Clock Tower round-about. The photo above and the following first 4 photos under are from the Wat Ming Muang. The photos following after are from the Wat Phra Kaew.

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!
