Chiang Mai has some beautiful old buildings, that you just don’t see in Bangkok and other areas. Here some pictures I took this morning while walking to breakfast.

Wat Chedi Luang, a beautiful teak temple.

This building is part of the AUA (American University Alumni) where foreigners can study Thai Language. At some time in the future I would like to study Thai and this place is one of the more places to go. The name of the school is a little off-putting for me, but the buildings and grounds look beautiful.

This looks to be a private residence.

This is another nice Thai style building which is being used as some kind of architecture exhibition center. There was no-one around when I went in, except for two mangy looking, snarling dogs. Eventually a woman surfaced and said there was an exhibition on upstairs. For some reason she also told me not to touch the dogs.
