About Chiang Rai
Chiang Rai is the capital city of Chiang Rai Province and the most northerly large city in Thailand with a population of around 70,000. Chiang Rai is a popular destination for tourists who come here for the scenery, temples and cooler climate.
Although Chiang Rai has a long and interesting history (it was once the capital of separate kingdom in the north of Thailand) the two most popular attractions in the city are temples which have been built more recently. The most popular of these is the White Temple temple, construction of which commenced in 1998. The other major, and modern, tourist attraction is the Black Temple. The Black Temple consists of other 40 largely wooden structures painted black which contain artwork created by Thailand’s late national artist, Thawan Duchanee, who passed away in 2014. Thawan Duchanee grew up in Chiang Rai and was noted for his religious paintings and intricate engravings.
