ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productPass By: Wat Rong Khun, Chiang Rai, Chiang Rai ProvinceBy the end of the 20th century, the original Wat Rong Khun was in a bad state of repair. Funds were not available for renovation. Chalermchai Kositpipat, a local artist from Chiang Rai, decided to completely rebuild the temple and fund the project with his own money.To date, Chalermchai has spent THB40 million of his own money on the project.Stop At: Wat Rong Seur Ten (Blue Temple), Chiang Rai, Chiang Rai ProvinceThis is probably the most unique and colourful temple you seen in Thailand so far. It is not a big and monumental temple, but a quieter and more peaceful one. And blue. Blue, blue, blue. Blue is the dominant colour here, making it different to the other Wats in Northern Thailand, adding the original note to it. So beautiful!Duration: 40 minutesStop At: Baan Dam Museum, Chiang Rai, Chiang Rai ProvinceOnce you enter the Black House you will see an intact elephant skeleton, skulls of various creatures which cannot be fathomed at first sight in its raw bone form. Skins of bears, tigers, reptiles, cracked eggs, furniture made out of animal bones, various skulls and bones that are used to decorate the ornate buildings and many more carcasses of exotic animals.Duration: 1 hour
