Chiang Rai // The White Temple

Monday, April 21, 2014

After our three days in Bangkok we caught a night bus to Chiang Rai, which is in the North of Thailand. After some 11 hours scrunched up in a bus we made it! Rylee slept most of the night on the floor, and we took turns holding Zachery who also slept a good chunk of the trip... and when he was awake the boob was a sure trick to keep him quiet :)

Our first site to see in Chiang Rai was the White Temple. This is one very unique temple, it is all white and adorned with mosiac pieces of mirror giving it the look of glistening crystals from afar. Definitely a must see if in the Chiang Rai area. Also being a relatively new temple, built in 1997, it has very modern touches in design as well as some very odd a mural within the temple that you will find images that seem quite out of place, like: Hello Kitty, Superman, Nero from Matrix, the planes crashing into the twin towers, and even a minion from Despicable Me... so wierd! (Also note you can go pee in class in a building that is entirely gold, not real of course, but definitely extravagent building just for toilets)
