Chiang Rai:

At the very North of Thailand bordering Burma and Laos......

New temple started in 1997 by one of Thailand's most famous Architects and not finished yet....

Another View:




Entry bridge to temple:




Detail of entrance. Strangely enough, the interior of the temple is not finished yet but it does not match the opulence of the exterior:




Side View:



Public Toilet's Building. Where you can feel like a King when taking a dump....



Map of Northern Thailand. The country in blue is Myanmar (Burma), where the three countries meet is called the GoldenTtriangle. Used to be a paradaise for opium trading in the past...




Golden Triangle, Buddha on a ship statue by the Mekong river separating Thiland from Laos and Burma:



On board of the boats that cross the Mekong river and take you to Laos for a quick shopping trip:



Pier on the Laos side of the Mekong River:



Elephant Camp....no trip to Nothern Thailand is complete without riding an elephant:



Elephants by the river:



Elephant Embarking building. This is wherethe tourists get to ride the elephants:



Once on top of the elephant you are taken for a ride.....



Happy tourists riding on top of elephants (the tourists are happy... the elephants I think not so much):

More to come......
