Thailand, Asia: The Indian-style Wat Chet Yod is another popular temple on the outskirts of the city.
Chiang Mai
Thailand
Concierge.com's insider take:

With a large collection of religious antiques and royal artifacts, the Chiang Mai National Museum, located one mile northwest of the old city on Highway 11, makes a pleasant half-day stop (66-53-221-308; www.thailandmuseum.com). Next door is Wat Chet Yod, a temple built in 1477 for a World Buddhist Council. It features an unusual square, seven-spired stupa modeled on the famed temple at Bodh Gaya, India. One mile further north, off Highway 107 in Rama IX Park, the exhibits at the Tribal Museum, including silver-encrusted Akha headdresses and Hmong embroidery, are an excellent introduction to the major hill tribes of the north (66-53-210-872).
