Temples around Chiang Mai, Thailand

After we spent a relaxing 4 days in Koh Samui, we flew(from the cutest and smallest airport ever) to Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. Chiang Mai was what I was most excited for on this trip. I had heard that it is a wonderfully cultural place. It certainly did not disappoint. We immediately fell in love with the slower pace of life in Old Town. Our little hotel was not luxury like our resort, but it was clean and comfortable and we didn't plan on spending much time in our room. As soon as we checked in, we changed and decided to walk around Old Town. Old Town is the less busy part of Chiang Mai, surrounded by an ancient wall and a moat. Yep, a moat. It was so exciting to turn the corner and find one beautiful temple after another. We spent the entire afternoon finding the old, extravagant temples. It is so interesting to me because you don't find anything like it in the states.
