On my mom’s last full day in Thailand we decided to take it easy. In the morning we relaxed and hung out at our hotel’s pool. In the afternoon, we rented a motorbike and drove to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. It is a beautiful average-sized temple and located on top of a mountain overlooking all of Chiang Mai. The view is magnificent and you can regularly see planes landing and taking off from the airport just outside the main city. It is one of Northern Thailand’s most sacred temples and you often see Buddhist monks walking the grounds. According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the temple was built in 1383 to enshrine Buddha’s relics.
