This will be part one of three videos about Chiang Rai. Yes, I liked this city that much. This one covers our first day and a half exploring the city, there are a lot of temples along the way. Our two favorite things within the city were the original Wat Pra Kaew (there are temples of the same name in Chiang Mai and Bangkok that display a jade Buddha that was supposedly exposed by a bolt of lightning from this temple (the real one is in the capital)) and the stunning clock tower. Chiang Rai is a breath of fresh air with the mountains to your back, flowers exploding everywhere, and the comfortable size of the city itself (compared to Bangkok and even Chiang Mai). I hope I captured that in this video.
