Day Sixteen

Wat Chedi Luang Worawihan - Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

We spent yesterday driving ATV's through the Jungle, which was awesome! But we needed both hands at the wheel, so no pictures were taken.

We spent the day in Chiang Mai today, touring the city.

The first stop was Wat Chedi Luang Worawihan, one of the bigger temples in Chiang Mai.

The hottest hours of the day were spent at the hotel pool.

After cooling down a bit we ordered a van to take us to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. Doi Suthep is the name of the mountain where the temple is located. It's considered a sacred site to many Thai people.

We always seem to pick things to see that require climbing long stairs.

A nice perk of the temple is the great view of Chiang Mai.

Clouds were starting to roll in and yesterday with the ATV trip we learned that this means rain. Time to head back to the hotel and get dinner.
