Chiang Rai, Thailand
Visit Wat Rong Kun - also known as the White Temple.
Whereas most temples visited by tourists have a history going back many centuries, this magnificent place of worship was built only recently. It is the realization of a dream for Thailand's noted artist, Mr Chalermchai Kositpipat, who designed and is supervising the construction of this beautiful white temple and its many statues of figures based on religious beliefs. In addition, there is a gallery nearby exhibiting his paintings.
