Images Of Chiang Rai 2005-2012

Recommended Posts

I'll rotate these images every month or two, putting about 3 max up each time. If you're reading this before visiting Thailand we hope it will help introduce you to the regions of this country.

If you have photos please add them to our gallery.

Wat Rong Khun

WatRongKhun_Chiangrai3.jpg

Description below from discoverythailand.com:

Wat Rong Khun is very different to any of temple you are likely to see in Thailand. A lifetime project of artist Chalermchai Kositpipat, the temple has a fine blend of traditional Buddhist art with contemporary themes. The temple is almost entirely white – no other colours are used at all. It is though decorated with small pieces of mirrored glass which add substantially to the temple’s spacious and airy feel. Designed to be viewed in moonlight, if you can manage to get there when the moon is out it’s worth the effort – very nice indeed.

Great pictures!

Here are two more. Taken back in 1997. The temple steps are on a hill about 3 kms northwest of Chiang Rai. I regret that I forget the name of the place, so if anyone can help, I would be delighted to know!

Tayto - I did say 'mostly'!

Mine was taken by the bridge where the parade went into the park. The parade seemed quite short - a mere fraction of that of 2 years ago. I took only a couple photos of it!

Was the parade longer elsewhere? Know anything about that? With so many other activities over such a long period, and an incredible dragon show in the park late at night (I hear), a short parade seems strange...

I was in the same spot , must have missed you.

Agreed, it was very confusing.

Don't know whats going on ,a lot of events over the few days and nobody knowing exactly what or where.

I believe this is Doi Khao Kwai (Buffalo Hill). There is a temple on top of the hill which is also accessible to vehicles. Important for those with weak knees or too fat to climb.

Great pictures!

Tourist season is on; weekends one can hardly walk in the Night Bazaar. Few handmade products remain (if any).

But! What's really on, or was:

Kiew Khao

rice harvesting

:D Wow! :o

Yesterday I went looking for a second Lahu Museum, misinformed by some PhD candidate... Got these photos though.
