WAT PHRA THAT DOI SUTHEP - A TEMPLE ON TOP OF A HILL


This is one of the prominent tourist spots in Chiang Mai. The temple (or "wat" in Thai) is located on top of a hill which requires visitors to climb up 309 steps to reach the building. *panting*













There were just too many people around, both locals and tourists alike. To get myself photographed without anyone in the background was almost impossible. People either came here to admire the fine architecture or to pray. I could see some people were there to see the monk on duty, most probably to get the blessing from the holy man.















I felt a bit slimmer right after this (challenging) trip but the feeling did not last that long.
