Mueang Chiang Rai District, Chiang Rai, Thailand
Wat Phra Kaew, or more commonly known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha is revered as the most important Buddhist temple in Thailand. Located within the historic grounds of the Grand Palace, it enshrines Phra Kaew Morakot, or the Emerald Buddha, which is a Buddha image intricately carved from a single block of jade, dating back to the 15th century AD. This temple is officially known as Wat Phra Sri Rattana Satsadaram. Resting on a series of high raised platforms, no one is allowed near the main enshrined statue, except HM the King. Important to the Thai culture and rituals, an important ceremony of changing the robes is performed only by the King to bring good fortune to the country during each season. The temple of Emerald Buddha is beautifully decorated and every visitor has vouched for a sense of peace and serenity within the temple premises. Opening Hours: 8.30 am to 3.30 pm

Mueang Chiang Rai District, Chiang Rai, Thailand
Bangkok may echo irony in terms of gleaming temple complexes on one side and scintillating skyscrapers on the other. To please the elders, we started our trip with Wat Phra Kaew or the Temple of the Emerald Buddha inside the complex of the Grand Palace. The day ended with a rejuvenating Thai massage inside the Wat Pho.

About Chiang Rai

For my second visit to Thailand, I opted for Chiang Mai. The temples around the city are beautiful, but it was the Elephant camp nearby that was my favorite experience. After a nice Thai Massage, I headed to Chiang Mai with a full agenda. I took a 30 minute elephant ride that seemed to have lasted longer. Post that, we visited Doi Suthep Temple on a mountaintop overlooking the city of Chiang Mai. Doi Suthep is Chiang Mai’s most famous temple and definitely its most scenic. The views from the temple are amazing and the temple itself is just as beautiful as the many that I’ve seen in Bangkok. I spent some time wandering around before walking back.
