Having seen the Black House, I had an afternoon to stroll through Chiang Rai with nothing particular in mind, before taking the overnight bus back to Bangkok.

Chiang Rai city wall:

King Mengrai monument:


They have a tram on a circular route past the main attractions as well:

route and operating time (9:00 - 9:30 am and 1:00 to 1:30 pm), didn't inquire about price:

Wat Klang Wiang:

Wat Phra Singh:




Wat Phra Kaeow (which used to house the Emerald Buddha, now in Bangkok; but recently got a copy that is 1 mm smaller than the original):

There is a museum with free entry on the temple grounds:

Wat Ming Muang (construction of new buildings in progress):

There is a large mosque in Chiang Rai:

Clock tower, by same artist and in same style as White Wat:

During my stay in Chiang Rai, there was construction work on sidewalks in several places, watch your step:
