    While in Chiang Mai, take the unique opportunity to talk to a monk. Yes, monks are often keen to practice their English. Monk chat is free and is open Monday to Saturday from noon to 6:30. Its pretty easy to find as well, being right next to Wat Chedi Luang.

    Chatting with monks

    Every wonder that monks do all day? Or what they have do in their monkhood, their thoughts..or anything you wanna know about Buddhism? Or even any other questions that have nothing to do with buddhism at all. Go for an informal "Monk Chat" at Wat Suan Dok, Suthep Rd. Moung Chiang Mai. These monks are students (Buddhist University) and they love to talk! :-) actually it's part of their study program aswell. So, feel free to stop by at this temple and chat with them :-) It's very casual talk.

    In temples of Old Chiangmai, we are surprised to see a unique activity being offered to visitors...the "Monk Chat". I think this is their government's way of attracting vistors who are curious to know Thailand better. Here, visitors are invited to talk to monks to learn about Buddhism, Monk's life, Thai culture and other things.

    Since this is my first visit to a Buddhist country, I think talking to a Monk would be very interesting and enlightening experience for me and my mother. Unfortunately, we learned that since it is summer, the Monk Chat is temporarily unavailable.
