Through the Sandbox Lens #51 — Chiang Mai Sunrise

Posted by on Feb 8, 2013 in Destinations, Featured, Thailand - Chiang Mai, Through the Sandbox Lens | 13 comments

The sun rises around 6:40 am in Chiang Mai during the winter. My window looks out onto a temple and a chedi spire. That, combined with the sun, produces some lovely sun rise shots. This mornings sun rise was particularly nice.

Traveler’s Tip…

If you want some interesting shots of Chiang Mai, get up and out before 7am. just when the city is waking up. You’ll discover early morning food carts, monks doing morning alms, and the temples waking up. AND…it is so peaceful!

Here are some early morning shot that I took last year in Chiang Mai.
