High up in Chiang Mai

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is a temple way up high overlooking Chiang Mai. There is a cool legend about this site. From Wiki: “a white elephant which was released in the jungle. The elephant is said to have climbed up Doi Suthep…trumpeted three times before dying at the site. It was interpreted as a sign and King Nu Naone ordered the construction of a temple at the site.”

As at any site, there were plenty of snacks available outside. Fried quail eggs and cups of sweetcorn (seasoned with condensed milk) were eaten with enthusiasm. Simple street food.

This monk figurines lined a low wall. I love their cute features and chubby cheeks.

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.

      Thanks! We loved them too. For me, it was the chubby cheeks and cute little mouths. Wish we could have bought mini ones as souvenirs. Is that terribly touristy and inappropriate to say about monks?
