Wat Phrathat Doi Wao, Mae Sai

Wat Phra That Doi Wao, Mae Sai…

…The Great Northern Road Trip 2020 : Day 11

The story starts HERE.

Wat Phrathat Doi Wao, Mae SaiSo, after the earlier Dao Wow Market standoff, I quickly reached Wat Phra That Doi Wao.

It’s another one on a hill with great views. But supposedly is best known for its giant scorpion statue.

It doesn’t really have any “Oh wow” features – unless you’re a fan of scorpions – and I imagine that’s not too many people.

But it’s an attractive place, and makes a nice change from Mae Sai town, which frankly is not so attractive.

The place I’d briefly visited earlier, Wat Tham Pha Chom, is clearly visible so I managed to get some aerial shots of that, and of Mea Sai town…

NEXT: Golden Triangle Park, Chiang Rai…
