Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai

These are very different cities in Northern Thailand.  Some of the contrasts can be seen here.

Chiang Mai

We stayed just inside the old city, separated by a moat and renovated ruins of the walls.

Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep

This famous temple resides in the foothills overlooking Chiang Mai about a 40 minute drive in share taxi.  Normally, I avoid photos of visitors to temples.  Rather than try to get pristine photographs of the main chedi in Doi Suthep, I entertained myself trying to get photos of selfies and group photos. I especially like the monk.

Chiang Rai

Not so densely packed with famous temples, but its smaller size made it easy to navigate.
