Then, depart the homestay and travel about 10 minutes to Doi Saket temple. The temple is very beautiful and enriched with amazing decorations.

There is a chance to go into the temple school and see the young monks hard at work.

Next, visit a local market called ‘Maekru’ and take in the sights and sounds that are normally unseen by tourists. Visit the local village temple where there are only two monks. For a very spiritual experience the monks will say a traditional prayer to bless the travels.
