The Temples of Chiang Mai; well, two of them anyway…
If you haven’t been to Thailand its hard to image how many temples there are… there are hundreds, literaly. Chiang Mai has over 300 and you can barely turn a corner without seeing another one.
The larger ones are made up of several buildings with accommodation and quite often schools; despite this (and the tourists) they are very calm places (as befits their intention) and even if you are not religious a nice place to spend some time.
The first Wat below is especially calm as its not on the tourist run, being on the east side of the river.
