    A perfect example of a Burmese style temple easily recognizable by the roof. Sadly, it was undergoing renovations at the time of my visit. The interior is also recognizable as it is more square than a Thai style temple. The Buddha is made of bamboo and gilded. The temple is over 100 years old.

Where to stay in Phrae

There are a number of excellent budget-friendly to luxury options available in Phrae. Head near the bus station for a couple of well-equipped, slightly pricier hotels that offer cable TV, air-conditioning, and ensuite bathroom facilities. Alternatively, traveling backpackers on a budget flock to the heart of Phrae, where there are a number of rooms close to the night market. The accommodations here are spaced apart and require a lot of walking. Book your rooms ahead of time to avoid a lot of traveling back and forth.
