What’s one thing in your life that you can’t believe actually happened?!👇 For me, it’s the fact that I got married and went on a honeymoon. ✨ I heard about weddings and honeymoons in pop culture ever since I was a small child, and I always associated them with people who were WAY older than I was. And now I’M A MEMBER of the “marriage” club! ❤️ It still feels slightly strange every time I say aloud, “I have a husband.” What’s one thing in your life that just HAPPENED before your brain had time to catch up!? P.S. I bought this bucket hat from a local Thai craftswoman who said it took her 2 days to make!!!! It’s my favorite...💭🙏
Blue Temple Chiang Rai Blue Temple or Wat Rong Seua Ten is located in Rong Suea Ten in the district of Rimkok a few kilometers outside Chiang Rai.
In 1996, the villagers decided to rebuild a temple here. The construction started in October 2005, the White Buddha was completed in 2008 while the main hall was only completed on 22th January 2016.
En route to beautiful Chiang Rai, our bus stopped at a hot spring featuring natural high geysers. Impressed me by its hotness absolutely and how locals use them to de-bitterness forest bamboo shoots. In addtion to, I bought some barbecued skewers (shared with a very cute cat then) and a bag of hot spring-boiling baby eggs ❤
Throwback alert: Let’s hear it for #squadgoals am I right guys? 😄
What’s so funny about these pictures is that my friend @amberbarrett18 and I hadn’t seen each other in SO LONG due to being at different universities 🎓 and then when we finally can meet- it’s IN VIETNAM 🇻🇳 and THAILAND 🇹🇭!!! 😂😂
Amber, Max and I had an amazing day in Chiang Rai going to the White temple, blue temple and the black house. There are loads of taxi 🚕 drivers that you can strike a deal with to take you to all 3 in a day- it’s SO worth it 😍
And it always helps when your S/O gets on great with your friends too ❤️
Wat Huay Pla Kang, Chiang Rai (Thailand) 🇹🇭
Approximately 6km north of Chiang Rai on the road to Mai Sai and Myanmar lies this spectacular temple perched on a hillside with a huge statue of the goddess of mercy - Guan Yin, although its known as Chiang Rai's Big Buddha.
🇬🇧One of the typical means of transport in Thailand is definitely the tuk tuks, which could correspond to our Piaggio Ape.
And with a tuk tuk trip we arrived at Wat Huay Pla Kang!
Commonly known as the Big Buddha of Chiang Rai, it actually represents the goddess of mercy.
It is truly a majestic artwork, located on a hill that allows you to see it even before you get there.
The tuk tuk starts, we remind you to hold on tight to the supports and pay attention to the head in case of holes! A very funny experience!
Once you arrive in front of the statue you will remain open mouthed! Go up the stairs, enter the statue, and look out of the slits of her eyes to enjoy a beautiful view of Chiang Rai!
🇮🇹Uno dei mezzi di trasporto tipici della Thailandia sono sicuramente i tuk tuk, che potrebbero corrispondere alle nostre Ape Piaggio.
E con un viaggio in tuk tuk siamo arrivati al Wat Huay Pla Kang!
Comunemente conosciuto come il Big Buddha di Chiang Rai, in realtà rappresenta la dea della pietà.
È davvero un’opera imponente, situata su una collina che ne permette la vista ancor prima di arrivarci.
Il tuk tuk parte, vi ricordiamo di reggervi forte agli appositi sostegni e fare attenzione alla testa in caso di buche! Un’esperienza molto divertente!
