Day 110 & 111: Chiang Rai Brilliance!
We took the coach up to Chiang Rai, which after a burst tyre en route meant we arrived later in the evening than planned. Never mind! 😬
The next day though was jam packed! We managed to take in the White Temple, the Blue Temple, the giant Buddah and also the lovely waterfalls at Khun Kon, all found within 20 minutes of each other. Chris also had a Thai massage, which was described as 95% torture and 5% awkwardness (the bottom rubbing part...👀) Hopefully all the limb twisting and elbow digging will make him feel better tomorrow! 😂
The white temple was really something else though, and blew us all away with its stunning beauty. The temple is enfused with various contemporary pieces of art, mixing the western world with the eastern. You'll find all sorts, from Minions, to Darth Vader and to the Terminator carved into the walls here (admittedly they appear to be depicting a version of hell but even so, it was pretty cool to look at!) The whole day was just amazing, a really awesome way to finish off our Thailand adventure before we travel to Laos tomorrow.
If you ever get a chance to visit Thailand make sure Chiang Rai is high on your list of places to visit! 🇹🇭 #whitetemple #bluetemple #thailand #travelplans #wanderlust #wanderluster #adventureisouthere #adventure #thaimassage #travelmadfamilies #eatthinkexplore #adventurefamily #sayyesmore #exploretheworld #familygapyear #familygapyear2019 #makelifememorable #yolo #familyadventure #familyadventures #familytrip
