要數泰國北部最出多遊客到訪的城市,清邁可是數一數二。對我來說,它最特別的地方不是它的古城和鄰近的山區和大象,而是雖然它和諧的融合了它那泰國城市本質和西方的潮流。你一方面可以去傳統的寺廟和地道的街市,另一方面又可以去一個新潮的咖啡廳或是去山區zipline。我已經詳盡的說過了清邁物價等等,而以下是我的清邁自由行攻略:

清邁景點

清邁的景點說多不多,說少不少可是可分兩大類:在清邁市區和附近山區。清邁的古城可是十三世紀未開始的蘭納王國首都,有著城牆,護城河等的設施,也是現在的市中心。而清邁可是北部最大的城市,離泰國最高的山和小數民族最近。那我們先談一下清邁市內,再談一下山區:

 

清邁古城

古城最大的特色就是它保留了原本的風貌。由google map就可以看到它是四方形狀。而除了在護城河和城牆的兩邊都加了單程路外,它大部分城牆都保留得很好,而城門也還在使用中。在古城內是禁止興建高樓大廈,而保存古城風貌。雖然古城也是一個景點,可是那土紅城牆內外也是馬路,很難去細觀和拍照。最好的欣賞方法是去坐tuk tuk環繞一周。

 

清邁寺廟

清邁在十四世紀起就開始興起佛教,所以寺廟可是和羅馬的教堂一樣多不勝數,單是在古城內已經有幾十個寺廟,而在附近山上的更多。不過大家要注意很多時在網上搜查時出現的白寺其實離清邁不近,如果是自由行的話去的車程較遠,所以我們這次自由行只是了在古城內的寺廟。那到底哪個寺廟非去不可?以下有我最喜歡的五個:

 

柴迪隆寺 Wat Chedi Luang

在清邁最有名的寺廟,它可是由數個寺廟組成Wat Ho Tham Wat Sukmin。你一開始會先見到金光閃閃的Wat Ho Tham,不過不要把它誤以為是Wat Chedi Luang,它可是在後面空地那塌了一半的四方廟。它的上蓋是在十六世紀的一場地震才由原本八十二米高的盛況到如今六十米。它建於1391年,可是當時代該區最高的建築物。在廟中間被Naga和大象守護住的是現在已移到曼谷的玉佛。

蘭昌寺 Wat Lam Chang

wat-lam-chong-vihran-Chiang-Mai-Thailand-Laugh-Travel-Eat蘭昌寺聽起來很悅耳,可是它名字的意思可是”被困的大象”,源因是這是以前一名皇帝養大象的地方。而廟內也真的有很多大象石像。它沒有第一名那麼出名,感覺較清靜宜人。我在網上找不到其他有關這個廟的資料,可是喜歡大象的朋友可不要錯過它~

盼道寺Wat Pan Tao

Wat-Pan-Taeo-Chiang-Mai-Thailand-Laugh-Travel-Eat比起它的名字,盼道寺的建議材料更令人印象深刻,因為它是一個由木建成的廟宇,在十四世紀建成。它原本是一個為柴迪隆寺造佛象的地方,名字的意思為”一千個火爐”。它的建築可是傳統的蘭納式,在廟外有一個簡短的介紹牌。

素攀寺Wat Sri Suphan

又一個別名比真名出名的廟,素攀寺是以它銀光閃閃的顏色而出名。它可是在清邁的星期六夜市路上,所以雖然它不是在古城內你也沒有理由不去。雖然它沒有在清萊的銀廟大,不過這個建於十四世紀的寺廟造工也十分精緻。這個銀廟也不是全都是銀色,只有最中心的那一個才是,而女士是不準入內的。

清曼寺 Wat Chiang Man

第一眼看時,清曼寺和柴迪隆寺真的很像,而它也是一個由幾個寺廟組成的。不過清曼寺的歷史更加悠久,在十三世紀未時建成,也是第一間皇家寺廟。

和柴迪隆寺不一樣的是它後面的寺—the Sacred Elephant Encircled Stupa—除了有少少風化痕跡外都保存得很好。

清邁市集

So many choices!!

我在我的清邁市集文章內已詳細介紹了我去過的三個市集—可在這找到。

清邁大象營

The happy face is an illusion. Really

首先我想跟大家說騎大象是一件對大象很殘忍的事。和馬不一樣,大象的體型並不適合給任何人物到它背上放或坐,而所有大象都不會樂意讓人或物到它背上,除非它們從小就被虐待去接受。不要因為騎大象看起來很酷或是那大象營名字上有著保育等字就以為它們對大象很好。我們絕對不應該助長這種”動物旅遊”。

在發生這一點後,我們在網上尋找許久終於找到一個價錢不太貴名聲也不錯的大象營:Elephant Jungle Sanctuary。你可以在這個文章找到所有有關去這個大象營的經歷和資料

 

清邁zipline

喜歡刺激活動的朋友可以到清邁山區叢林中zipline,而和大象營一樣,清邁有很多不同zipline地方可以選擇。最常見的是Flight of the Gibbons,它在不同的地旁好像也有分店。不過我們最後選了跟Skyline Adventure。其中一個原因是它有在清邁最長的zipline—足足有九百米,我可嚇得不感去,最後是其中一個員工和我一起過去。

它有不同時段可以選擇,我們在早上十一時出發,在傍晚六時回到酒店,因為來回總共也差不三小時。不過好處是它的車是有空調的。

價錢:2000 Baht

包括: 午餐,zipline和接送。他們會建議你不要帶自己的相機。如果你從來沒有zipline過又有點怕—那還是不帶好。他們有拍照服務,不過要壓外付錢(人愈多愈抵)。

 

清邁住宿

清邁有很多住宿選擇,最好就是住在古城的附近。至於大致在哪一區就要視付你想近什麼。像是星期六的夜市是在古城的南邊,那邊也有又便宜又好手勢的按摩店Green Bamboo。而Warorot Market和夜市則是在古城外的東邊。

另一個是價錢問題,大多數在古城內的酒店都會較貴,當然這也和它的星級等有關。

Battery Park Midtown Villa

我們最後住了在古城外的東邊。我們離東城門只有五分鐘距離,而在入口內就是一個菜市場。

這個酒店除了沒有泳池和升降機外沒有什麼可以投訢。它的設計現代,房間也很清潔。早餐也很很多選舉,環境也很靜。
