Monk chats is a concept that creates an opportunity for visitors to sit down and have an informal conservation with local Buddhist monks. Not only is it a great way for monks to practice their English language skills, visitors will be able to learn more about Buddhism and Thai culture as well.
It is offered at several temples throughout Thailand, the most notable being Wat Chedi Luang in Chiang Mai. Monk Chats are usually free; however, donations are encouraged along with proper temple attire and etiquette.
