We spent a few days in Chiang Mai for a little R&R before heading back to Korea. Chiang Mai is a gorgeous place filled with tons of restaurants, outdoor activities, night markets, and breathtaking landscapes. The weather wasn’t hot and stuffy like South Thailand, so we spent most of our time outside exploring the city by foot. As we were walking towards the city center, we came upon Wat Chedi Luang; temple ruins dating back to 1440. The temple, in it’s glory days, was known as one of the highest in Chiang Mai, but was later then destroyed by a natural disaster (either an earthquake or cannon fire, the sign translation was unclear).
TRAVEL TIPS: It was a fun little walk to the temple, and we enjoyed looking around the grounds for 10-15 minutes. If you plan on going, the temple is very near the Sunday Night Market area-only a block or two away. It doesn’t take long to walk through (as previously stated two sentences ago), so why not go on your way to the night market? Free admission to get in, and the traditional dress code of no shorts, tank tops, or dresses above the knees apply. They do provide sweet looking graduation-like robes for you to wear free of charge if you need to cover up.
