What to see in Phrae

The city of Phrae can be visited quickly. The monument to absolutely see during your stay in Phrae is the Wat Phra That Cho Hae, a big temple 8 kilometers outside the city. Otherwise, we recommend a walk in the old town (part that was surrounded by walls) including: Wat Phra Bat Ming Muang, Wat Luang, Wat Pong Sunan, Wat Phra Non and maybe the Vongburi House.
If you have a vehicle, you can also explore the countryside and why not go to Phayao and its lake or Den Chai and see the Wat Phra That Su Thon Mongkhon Khiri temple.

Must-visits in Phrae

Wat Pong Sunan Phrae

Wat Pong Sunan

วัดพงษ์สุนันท์
My opinion :
A recent temple, but certainly it worths a visit at least for its big reclining Buddha in the temple courtyard. There is also a golden chedi, a main building with a two naga staircase leading to it, as well as numerous statues. The temple is right next to Wat Luang.
Wat Phra Non Phrae

Wat Phra Non

วัดพระนอน
My opinion :
Literally translated Temple of the Reclining Buddha. It is true that the 9 meters long statue it houses is superb but the architecture and the fine decoration of the main hall are also very beautiful.
Wat Phra That Cho Hae Phrae

Wat Phra That Cho Hae

วัดพระธาตุช่อแฮ
My opinion :
Located 8 miles outside of Phrae on a small hill, it is THE temple to visit when you come here. There is a saying that states that if you came to Phrae without visiting the Wat Phra That Cho Hae you did not really come to Phrae.
Wat Phra That Suthon Mongkhon Khiri Phrae

Wat Phra That Suthon Mongkhon Khiri

วัดพระธาตุสุโทนมงคลคีรี
My opinion :
This temple is certainly recent but does not lack interest. For its large reclining Buddha with impressive feet obviously but not only. Its architecture mixes Lanna and Burmese styles and has many interesting statues and elements. It is one of my favorites temples little known by foreign tourists in northern Thailand.
Saturday Walking Street (Kad Phra Non) Phrae

Saturday Walking Street (Kad Phra Non)

กาดพระนอน
My opinion :
Called 'Kad Phra Non' which means reclining Buddha market because it is close to Wat Phra Non, this friendly night market is held every Saturday evening in the city center of Phrae in a pretty little street thqt is pedestrian for the occasion. The Walking Streets are numerous in Thailand but here the atmosphere is unique, more local, more relaxed and less touristy.
Village of Indigo Dye Phrae

Village of Indigo Dye

บ้านทุ่งโฮ้ง
My opinion :
The Mo Hom indigo dyeing is Phrae's most famous specialty and for me, you can not come here without trying to dye a handkerchief, a scarf or a shirt by yourself. It's fun to do and possible in Ban Thung Hong village not far form the city. And that will make you a unique memory.
