 Wat Phra That Doi Thong 

This ancient hilltop pagoda overlooks the Mae Kok River and predates the founding of Chiang Rai as the capital of Lanna Thai.

  Wat Phra Singha

This temple, on Singhakhlai Road, is a fine example of Lanna Thai religious architecture. The Phra Buddha Singh image now hourse in Chaing Mai's Wat Phra Singh was formerly enshrined here.

  Wat Phra Kaew   Pictures: Wat Pra Kaew, Chiangrai

Formerly called Wat Pa Yia (bamboo forest), this is where the Emerald Buddha image was found.  Thus the name of the temple was derived.

On 21 Oct 1990, Buddhist clerics and laity agreed to build the Jade Buddha (commonly called Phra Yok Chiang Rai) to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Princess Mother's birthday.  The Buddha image was officially name Phra Phuttha Rattanakonnawuttiwatsanuson Mongkhon, which means the Buddha who is the source of gems.

In the main prayer hall tands a huge bronze Buddha image in the posture of "sub-duing mara, or demon".  This is commonly known as Phra-Chao Lan Thong in Chiang Rai.  It was transferred from Wat Phra Chao Lan Thong to this temple in 1961.  The main hall itself was built in 1960 in the neo-Lanna style with double-tiered roof decorates with colored glass along the eaves and the beams.  The front portal posts and gable are decorated with intricate golden patterns.  The doors are showpieces of northern wood-carving techniques.

  Mae Kok River

Known in Thai as Maenam Kok, this scenic 130-kilometre long waterway runs through the heart of Chiang Rai. The river is a major transportation artery from neighboring Chaing Mai province, especially the town of Tha Ton (180 kilometres north of Chaing Mai provincial capital), whence tong-tailed boats make the 3-4 hour journey every day at 12.30 PM (Chaing Rai-Tha Ton: 10.30 AM). The river passes several hilltribe settlements and elephant camps from where jungle treks originate.

Wat Pa Sak

Located outside the city walls, some 200 metres from the Tourist Service Centre, this deserted temple, with ornamental stucco motifs, is regarded as being one of the most beautiful examples of Lanna architecture in northern Thailand.

In 1295, Prince Saen Phu built this temple to contain Buddha's relics.  He also had 300 teak trees planted in the temple compound.

Wat Pa Sak sits on 16 acre of land.  There are 22 historic remains on the temple grounds.   The main bell-shaped chedi has five tapering spires.

The chedi at Wat Pa Sak are considered to be the best physical condition as well as the most beautiful of Lanna Style.  The pattern and design on the chedi reflect artistic development in Chiang Saen, revealing its original adoption of  Sukhothai, Pagan (Phukam), and Hariphunchai artistric styles.  Through the process of cultural transformation, a unique Chiang Saen style was realized.  It has since become the prototype of Lanna chedis.

Wat Phra That Chom Kitti  Pictures: Prathat Chom Kitti

This hilltop temple has a pagoda containing a Buddha relic.

This temple challenges it visitors to climb up 339 steps in order to admire its beauty.  It is, however, also accessible by car.  King Phangkharat had this shrine built to contain Buddha's relics.   In 1487, Muen Chiang Song had a new pagoda built to cover the old pagoda.

Anothe pagoda containing Buddha's relics in the area is Phra That Chom Chaeng.  A look-out point behind this pagoda offers a vantage point to enjoy the Mekong vista.

  Wat Phra That Pha-Ngao  Pictues: Prathat Pa Ngao

Located 4 kilometres along the Chaing Saen-Chaing Khong road, this temples hilltop pagoda offers a spectacular view of the Mekong River and Laos.

Built uniquely on a big slab of solid rock, Phra That Pha Ngao is a relatively small bell-shaped pagoda.  Another slab of rock stands in front of the pagoda as though it were the shadow.  Thus derived the name "pha-ngao", meaning the rock shadow.

Initially, this temple was called Wat Sop Kham.  Its former location was by Mekong River, and the temple was annually eroded by the tides.  Townspeople thus agreed to rebuild the temple further inland by a deserted temple at the foot of Doi Kham.  During the construction, they found under the base of the old Buddha image a magnificent Chiang Saen style statuette in subduing mara posture.  After half of the Buddha image was revealed, the excavation was stopped and a prayer has was built to cover it.  The image was called "Luang Pho Pha Ngao".

The Golden Triangle  Pictures: Golden Triangle  Movies: Golden Triangle

8 kilometres north of Chaing Saen, this riverside area marks the spot where the borders of Thailand, Myammar and Laos converge.

This is the cross-roads of the three-land borders.  The Ruak River bordering Thailand and Myanmar runs into the Mekong River from Laos creating the well known Golden Triangle.  In the old days drug  traffickers secretly met to barter off opium with gold nuggets.  Today it is a bustling tourist destination where visitors come to enjoy the rising sun emerging from the misty seas of fog.  

For an aerial glimpse of the Golden Triangle, you need to climb uphill to Doi Chiang Miang by the Mekong River where Wat Phra That Doi Pu Khao once stood. Only a pile of bricks remains to mark the site, but it provides a look-out point to catch "the big picture" of the Golden Triangle.
