Wat Chedi Sao Lang

Twenty chedis in the fields

What we say: 1.5 stars

Sao is local dialect for twenty and sure enough here you'll find twenty medium sized chedis in an open setting. They're a mix of Burmese and Lanna styled and there is a small temple on site as well with a Chiang Saen styled Buddha image. Signage at the site says "one can assume they are over one thousand years old" on account of votive tablets from the Haripunjaya period that were unearthed by villagers.

Unless you have your own transport and a specific interest in chedis -- and are at a bit of a loose end -- the trip out here isn't really worth the effort -- we'd rather sit by the river with a book and a cold drink.

Around 5km northeast of downtown Lampang
How to get there: The well-signposted wat is around five kilometres out of town. Cross to the other side of the river and follow the signs.
