Wat Chiang Man
Address: 171 Ratchapakhinai Rd
When Wat Chiang Mun was built as the oldest temple in Chiang Mai, King Manglai camped here. The best time of Wat Chiang Man was in the early morning. Shortly after the temple was opened, there were basically no tourists. They were alone in the temple, watching the pigeons rise and fall, and inadvertently they would meet the monks who went to the temple. They smiled and walked side by side, a feeling that could not be said. Very relaxed and very comfortable.
Soon after the sun just rises, the sun is soft golden yellow, and the original golden temple top and the spire are rendered more dazzling.
Qingman Temple should have come in three times, because the hotel and the Qingman Temple are separated by a wall, and every morning they wake up in the sound of birds in the temple.
After 8 o'clock, the Qingman Temple became no longer quiet. The open space in front of the temple became a parking lot. The road under the shade of the trees was filled with a sudden car, and the temples were full of tourists coming and going.
