Out and About in Chiang Mai

I wish I had more to say about Chiang Mai.

Butterfly farm

 It’s one of the loveliest places I’ve ever been.  

Wat Phra That Suthep

 It has everything an adventurous vacationer could want- incredible wildlife, gorgeous scenery, and an engaging culture.   I think the images from the area are much more interesting than anything I could say about it.

I loved visiting the temples. They are mysterious but familiar at the same time. It was similar to visiting the cathedrals in Europe, but viewed through a different lense.  

Wat Chiang Man

 I visited the main temples in the area, the impressive Temple on the Hill, aka Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, and the Wat Chiang Man, part of which is pictured above.

The butterfly and orchid farm outside of the city provided a ton of beautiful photo ops.
