So many of these in Chiang Mai. It's pretty big and off the beaten path. Worth a wander, I guess. But Chiang Mai is otten hot, smokey, or rainy, so it's kind of uncomfortable wandering around outside.

Wat Chet Yot was one of the first temples I photographed when I came to Chiang Mai. It is often much quieter than other temples and has some very nice areas to relax in and offers wonderful photo opportunities for young couples having pre-wedding shoots....More

Amazing architecture decoration and sculpture, try and go early in the hot months, it will make your experience more pleasurable. I personally did not see the reclining Buddha for it was just too hot and too many people. Many interesting surrounding spaces will keep you...More
