Wedding Vow Renewal in Thailand’s Rose of the North

November 5, 2014 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: ,

In the morning one of our Khiri Travel guides will come collect the travelers from their hotel. We drive to Wat Don Chan, a temple located outside of Chiang Mai city. In the temple there is also a school and home for northern Thai hill tribe children.

A general idea of our program at the temple is as follows:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A Buddhist monk will preside over a typical Buddhist ceremony at which your travelers can renew their wedding vows. A professional photographer we be present and collect the pictures that will be delivered afterwards in a digital copy to the couple’s hotel.

While at the temple and school compound, it is possible for the couple to donate food for lunch for some of the school kids. Their happy faces will show their appreciation as a reward for your traveler’s kindness. Wat Don Chan’s Home at the moment is home for 750 children and youths under the temple’s care. Phra Atikarn Anandho, the Abbot of Wat Don Chan, initiated this home about 23 years ago to provide shelter, food and education for Karen, Hmong, Lisu, Muser and Akha hill tribe children. Many of them have lost their parents or are abandoned. They have had no place to study or learn how to speak English.

When travelers are ready in the early afternoon we drive to Doi Suthep where we will have a sumptuous Thai lunch. Obviously we visit what is probably Chiang Mai’s most famous landmark: Wat Prathat Doi Suthep. This guilded mountain temple, located at an elevation of 1676 meters, is accessed by a giant staircase of 300 steps and flanked by giant Nagas, or mythical snake images. Alternatively, there is a cable car ride up to the temple, where, in clear weather, the views are incredible.
