The White Temple
Next time I come here, and I know I will. I will try and come at a time when there are not so many people. This place was packed. It was very difficult to take pictures without other people just standing around or walking into the shot.
You are able to take pictures everywhere except for a small internal section. There is a man siting back slouched on this chair and just spends the whole day saying “No Photo, No Photo”. Also you will need to take your shoes off.
As with any Thai temple there is a dress code. Something along the lines of for too short skirt for girls and covered up shoulders. They do offer some wrap skirts for those who have come unprepared.
Where is Wat Rong Khun?
The public bathroom located around the back is deliciously complicated. The have footprints printed on the floor and make you walk in a directed line, then you need to change shoes. In my case they didn’t have any large enough they just waved me on to go in with my regular shoes. This may make sense if there was a lot of people waiting to go all at once, but there was no one even lining up.
I got here by hiring a bicycle from the main Chiang Rai town. It was a very pleasant ride which took about 45 minutes and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Hire a bike and take a relaxing cruise along the lesser traveled farmy streets.
From memory the nearby shops to close up fairly fast.
