Golden Buddah, Chiang Mai
Everyone I know who's hit Thailand talks about being 'templed out' at some point or another. With this in mind I made sure I limited my cultural temple based wanderings to a minimum. In fact I only really visited 2 in my time there – in Bangkok I went to see the reclining Buddah (standard Bangkok outting really!) and up in Chiang Mai I climbed the 306 steps to Wat Phra Thart Doi Suthep Temple. It has an amazing vantage point over the city and at sunset the light engulfs the whole thing in a blanket of golden shimmers. Beautiful lighting and some camer trickery and hey presto – photo of the week!
