It’s so easy to settle in to the slow place over coffees, beers, and lazy walks to the day market, the “Gold Clock Tower”, and the walking streets that take place on Saturday and Sunday.
There’s lots of tasty local dishes to try, you may even sample your first cricket like I did at one of the “walking street” markets.
If you get the urge to venture a little ways out of town you can visit Chiang Rai’s two top attractions, The “White Temple” and “Black Temple”, more art exhibits and artistic interpretations of Buddhism, then true temples, they are usually swarmed by tourist buses loaded with travellers and their selfie sticks. Go early in the day and you’ll have more room to wander and enjoy the settings, especially at the “Black Temple”.
I definitely plan to spend more time in Chiang Rai on my next visit, and like my last stay, I’ll probably end up extending it by a few more days.
