Pre-visit meds for Northern Thailand

by xray99

Are the recommended vaccinations for travel to this area different from down south? Also: has anyone traveled over the border to Myanmar here since the "troubles" a few weeks back?

Re: Pre-visit meds for Northern Thailand

by Gillybob

Yes, I remember from my trip a few years ago there was a recommendation of anti-malarial prophylaxis if spending any time around the immediate country border area, i.e. Golden Triangle (as we were only going to be there for a day, we decided to go without and use plenty of repellant but that was our personal decision).

As with any question of this nature, I highly recommend you seek the advice of a healthcare professional - malaria is a killer.

Enjoy your trip!

The one thing you can NOT immunize youself against is Denque Fever.

It is currently ALL over S.E. Asia.

I suggest the common safeguards: DEET, long-sleeves, mosquito nets if you are sleeping outside or without screens.

note: I'm speaking from experiencing, because I caught Dengue, in September, in the city of Chiang Mai.

Travel Tips for Chiang Rai

Wat Rong Khun

by Pat_Bangkok

Wat Rong Khun is a modern temple built since 1998 by famous thai artist " Master Chalermchai Kositpipat" , he desires to build a temple as a heaven – a touchable paradise on earth for human. The white color is chosen to represent the Lord Buddha’s immaculation. White glass means the wisdom of the Lord Buddha that shines out all over the earth and the universe. The bridge replaces walking across reincarnation to Bhudhabhumi. Before going up to the small half-circle bridge which means human’s earth and the bigger one with the fangs is the evil’s mouth or Rahu (the demon who swallows the sun and the moon) that means inner defilements representing hell or suffering. Whoever shall see the Lord Buddha in Bhudhabhumi shall have to leave their desires and cravings into the mouth of the evil so as to clear and clean up their mind. After that, they shall walk up along the bridge surrounded by 16 Omgun Asura, 8 for each side which implies for 16 defilements. Upon reaching the middle of the bridge which means Mount Meru where deities reside. Down below is the pond which means Sidantara Ocean with 6 tiers of heaven represented by 16 celestial lotuses around the temple. Four biggest lotuses are located beside the temple at the way up which means the 4 Ariyachao Archway consisting of Phra Sodabhan, Phra Sakitakamee, Phra Nagamee and Phra Arahant whom we should pay respect before getting up the half-circle staircase. The staircase contains 3 steps, each implies for Anijjung (impermanent), Tukhang (suffering) and Anatta (non-self) and leading to the land of 4 immaterial Brahma represented by 4 celestial lotuses and 4 gates. The last gate is a triangle glass means emptiness (extrication), then stepping over the doorsill to Bhudhabhumi.

Wat Jet Yot

by Willettsworld

This temple was just down the road from where I was staying at the Janson House (see my accommodation tip). It was built in 1844 by a Buddhist monk called Brakrubakuntha Kunthawungso. The temple became a third grade royal temple in 1978.
