Chiang Mai

Chelsea and Ben tie the knot at a Chiang Mai temple.

This beautiful couple was game for every adventure. Chelsea and Ben decided to get up before dawn to watch the sunrise at one of the most sacred temples in Chiang Mai, Wat Doi Sutep. After a traditional Buddhist blessing for good luck and happiness they shared their vows at a jungle waterfall. They ended the day hanging out with elephants in the jungle at the Chai Lai ecolodge. Chelsea and Ben we wish you many many years of love and laughter! We are so happy you found each other.

Hike the Monks Trail in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is largest and most culturally significant city in Northern Thailand and has over 300 Buddhist temples.  Hiking up to Wat Doi Suthep is a fun way to experience Thai culture and get a birds eye view of Chiang Mai. Wat Doi Suthep is the most famous temple in Chiang Mai, it is beautiful golden temple at the top of the mountain that over looks the entire city. The two hour hike takes you through a jungle to a forest temple, Wat Phra Lat Temple before a strenuous hike uphill to Wat Phra Doi Suthep.

Here is a great blog post with some tips on making the most of this excursion (and lots of other things in Thailand) Happy Hiking!
