CHIANG MAI GATE & CHANG PUAK GATE
Visit one of the most mysterious temples in town, Wat Lok Molee. Its exact history is unknown, though it dates back to at least 1367. Most interesting, the brickwork of the large chedi was left mostly bare without adornment of the more common elephant motifs you see at other Lanna temples in Chiang Mai. The temple is also aligned to face South, in contrast to most Buddhist temples which are oriented to face East. Dinner is served at the bustling street food market near Chang Puak Gate, with countless options for a local Thai meal. If you’ve wanted to branch out and try something new, but don’t know what to choose, let us help you find your next favorite dish! A zippy tuk-tuk ride will take you to a street food market on the opposite side of the moat, at Chiang Mai Gate. Here we will treat ourselves to dessert, trying Mango Sticky Rice or “Khanom Bualoy Khaiwan”, a popular sweet made from coconut milk with taro or pumpkin and topped with a boiled egg. A must for foodie-adventurers!
