Located just north of the Kok river within the city of Chiang Rai, the Blue Temple (Wat Rong Seua Ten) is well worth a visit. There is currently no entry fee, but this may change as it is getting very crowded with visitors.
The blue-colored coconut ice cream is popular – even on cool mornings! Long queues form on hot days. The blue color is from the butterfly-pea flower, which is generally used for blue coloring in Thai cooking (blue colored rice for example).
