“loy krathong and yi peng festival”
One of the best festival to look forward to when you’re in Thailand is the Loy Krathong and Yi Peng Festival though it is celebrated in the whole country every year, nothing can beat how Chiang Mai celebrate it as it is very unforgettable experience you will have. I won’t share what are those experiences cause I don’t want to spoil it. I want you to see and experience it yourselves.
The Hope Road Temple, known as the Blessing of the Holy Land, is also known as the Teak Temple. It is a temple diagonally opposite the Great Buddhist Temple. There is a huge and ancient teak hall in the temple. The pure Lanna-style design, with more than 280 years of history, is one of the few wooden buildings in the world. It is another nameless treasure in Chiang Mai. The wooden architecture always gives a feeling of elegance and dignity, and it also makes people feel more cordial.
Thai Phan Tao means "1000 stoves", because it used to be a Buddhist temple, and it was named after the Buddha statue for the first temple. Compared to other magnificent temples, the Temple of Hope is particularly simple and elegant. The shape of the large brothel is quite impressive. The carved stucco decoration doors and windows, antique, and the Bayeux scriptures of 200 years ago and the teak cabinets that collect the ancient scriptures are worthy of careful appreciation.
The first thing that caught the eye of the Hope Road Temple was the teak palace of the quaint mulberry. In fact, the temples I have in mind are never brilliant, but they should have both a sense of weight and a sense of history. If they are not high, they can also rely on Buddhist believers to rely on them. Compared with other golden temple buildings, the Hope Road Temple is a lot of low-key, but it is worth a long time.
Take the shoes out of the temple as usual, and there are many small Buddha statues in the hall. The quiet atmosphere makes people unable to make a sound. One flower, one world, one leaf and one bodhi; the quiet atmosphere of Pandao Temple can make people who have lived for a long time feel a lot.
The landscape fish in the pond is swimming around the circle, and we have been staying at the pond for a long time. Under the red umbrella, the Buddha bells hang in a row under the shade of green; although I don't know the meaning, I think this vulgar seems to be very pleasing.
Hope Road Wat Phan Tao

The Hope Road Temple is located opposite the Big Stupa Temple and has a history of more than 280 years, because it used to be a Buddhist temple. The temple hall is made entirely of teak wood and is very beautiful. It displays the ancient temple clocks, ceramics and Buddhist scriptures, all worthy of careful appreciation. There are eight famous "weekly Buddhas" in the temple. Each Buddha masters one day, and Wednesday is divided into two days, day and night. Find the corresponding Buddha and pray for blessing according to the week of your birthday. Every year in November, the Lantern Festival, the Hope Road Temple also has a grand blessing ceremony, the monks will chanting, lighting the candlestick, releasing the water lamp, and placing the sky lanterns. The scene is spectacular.
