Treating you to a spiritual journey, this is a tour through Chiang Rai’s intriguing religious lineage. Covering Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Phra Singha as well as the Wat Rong Khun, if time permits, this is a distinctive experience, not to mention, an unforgettable one.
Our trail begins at the venerated Wat Phra Kaew, one of the oldest temples in Chiang Rai. A third-common-class royal temple, this is where the iconic Emerald Buddha, the protective image of Thailand, was found. We will move on to the beautiful Wat Phra Sing, dating back to almost 700 years ago and housing several replicas of the Pra Singh Buddha image which is considered to be a cultural landmark for Theravada Buddhists from Sri Lanka. Wat Phra Sing is quite an eye-catching specimen of Lanna religious architecture and gives us a taste of the artistic style of this former dynasty.
Moving on, we will head to the fascinating Ob Khum Museum Lanna Heritage Conservation Centre which is home to a spectacular collection of artefacts, religious objects and well as those used in royal courts of the Lanna Kingdom. Before we head to our final stop and if we still have some time in hand, we will visit the contemporary Wat Rong Khun, also known as the White Temple. The wat is the result of popular local artist Chalermchai Kositpipat’s grand vision and it is believed that the temple will take around seven generations to be completed. Our final stop for the day is a popular fresh market in the city, letting you get acquainted to the incredible indigenous food items in the country as well as sample the daily lives of the locals.
