Wat Santikhiri, Thailand
Mae Salong Nok, Mae Fa Luang District, Chiang Rai 57110, Thailand
Off the beaten path in Mae SalongMae Salong is not a place where many tourists go. It's off the beaten path and a great place to base yourself for trekking and home stays with local hill tribes.
We spent a night in this town so we had some time to explore the sights. Everyone pointed us toward the hill to see the chedi located at the very top called Phra Boromathat. But as we approached the foot of the hill, we stumbled upon Wat Santikhiri, a beautiful small temple that was empty and quiet. We spent some time here before taking the stairs to the right of this temple to climb up to the top to see the chedi and fantastic views of the town.
