Chiang Rai, An Amazing City north of Thailand rich with nature, monuments, sustainable, Adventure, food and friendly people.

 

I was lucky that my post tour after ATF2018 was to Chiang Rai, in fact I already visited most of Thailand Cities and all were amazing, however in Chiang Rai, I felt that I need to come back again to explore more attractions and to enjoy my time and to experience the wonderful place.

 

Our Fam Trip started on 27th January 2018, luxury cars took us from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai, on the way we had tasty Thai lunch, of course i choose Fish as my favorite dish while being in Thailand, a tasty ICE cream followed with a draft of Singha beer.

 

Chiang Rai known as the agriculture center in the Kingdom of Thailand in terms of capacity, our visit was for Choui Fong Tea Plantation, where the best tea grows with several distinctive types such as Assam, Green, Oolong and black tea at the altitude of around 1200 meters above sea level,the ideal climate and soil conditions perrmit the cultivation of excellent teas.. I had two cups of Tea and sweets and enjoyed the scene.

 

Chiang Rai is also rich with temples, the Wat Phrathat Pha Ngao was our next visit, the legend has it that if anyone becomes sick and comes to worship the Phrathat here, then the illness will soon fade away, the temple is well preserved, clean and peaceful, we had a wonderful and panoramic view of the Mekong River.

 

One peaceful night at the hotel and we moved the second day to a paper making class at Jinnaluck the Miracle of Saa and Ban Pang Ha, this is an eco-friendly manufacture of green paper made from plants by hand, the programme is to get hands-on experience to create your very own one-of-a-kind mulberry paper. Kids were dancing and we enjoyed as well a visit to a Farm where we had fresh fruits.

 

A visit to the top north of Thailand where you can at the same time see Mekong River and Laos from one side and Myanmar from the other side.

 

The wonderful adventure was at the Doi Tung Tree Top Walk, situated in the Mae Fah Luang Garden on the Doi Tung developments project, I had a wonderful experience with 295 metre long walkaway among the trees at 30 meters above the ground, my colleague Samia refused to join us, she was afraid of the experience, but it was safe and really enjoyable.

 

Organizers also didn\'t missed a chance to offer us a Spa treatment at Natural Thai Spa in Chiang Rai, a wonderful lady offered us a Thai massage for one hour which relaxed us and free our mussels from stress.

 

We had also an experience for shopping at the local walking street - night market, I bought perfume and also had draft of beer with my friend Ms. Dorota Isabel from Poland who was joining the Fam Trip with us.

 

Another peaceful night , we moved in the morning to visit Wat Rong Suea Ten, or the blue temple displays the contemporary Buddhist art that implied the Lord Buddhas doctrine.

 

Next visit was to Wat Rong Khun which is one of a considerable number of religious places in Chiang Rai. Originating from the great devotion of renowned Thai artist. Chalermchai Kosipipat the temple is dedicated to Lord Buddha with the intention to construct an attainable paradise on earth representing righteousness and the encouragement of good karma. With both carved gable apexes and tooth-like ridges, constructed in pure white, illustrative of the Buddhas purity. Sophisticated murals by Chalermchai himself was there as well.

 

A wonderful scene was at Singha Park, this is very large park between mountains, very clean and well reserved, owned by Singha Beer company, they offered every thing for you to enjoy the nature, I had the chance to feed some wonderful birds, we had lunch and a Singah beer at the home of Singah.

 

Chaing Rai ais a wonderful city, rich with incentives, you feel happy with the nice and warm hospitality and you get a first class experience about North Thailand and Chiang Rai city, and as i said if the beginning, for sure i need to come back again to this nice and warm city, i feel that still a lot to see.

 

I love Thailand, I love Thai people.
