TODAY IS A DAY FOR FRESH PERSPECTIVES
Wat Rong Kun better known as the “White Temple” is the place I have been wanting to visit for so long. We were only in Chiang Rai for a day trip so I wanted to take advantage of our time and see as many beautiful temples as possible. With that in mind, you can only be at one place for sunrise and another at sunset to avoid the crowds. We arrived here mid day 😅 There was a lot of chaos! Imagine 40°C and gazillion people 😱 I was sweating like a pig hahahah! There were so many people and I mean wayyy too many! Selfie sticks everywhere 🙈😂 I knew it would be impossible to take that shot but we have to be creative and make use of the situation we were presented. We went around the temple and found this spot and to my surprise there was no one around 😍
I’m sure you guys have visited touristy spots, tell me your experience. What would you have done if you were in my shoes?
Did you know: This was opened in 1997. The main building is painted white to symbolise Buddha’s purity, and is covered in mosaics of mirrors, sparkling in the sun. All around the complex are intricate sculptures of demons, skulls, severed heads handing from trees and other bizarre objects. Cool or creepy?
Travel Tip: Best to come here before the temple closes at 17:30PM if you want this place to yourself.
