Arrived a day earlier before the yoga retreat so I could visit the two famous temples in Chiang Rai. This is the first one - the Blue Temple.
Found this cozy cafe/bistro inside a beautiful colonial house not far from the blue temple (5 minutes walking). It has a cute outdoor seating area in the back overlooking a river. The food was great too!
The other famous temple in Chiang Ria (actually a bit outside the city). Just like its name, the main temple is completely white. Despite the lack of colors, the design of the temple is so beautiful and intricate!
A great first day of the retreat. The retreat is tucked away in a quiet farm/lake area. All meals are vegetarian and included in the rate.
