Welcome to Chiang Mai! Where you from?Chiang Mai is the largest city in Thailand, though somehow more calming than Bangkok. If I had to do my trip again, I would have booked more time in Chiang Mai and less in Bangkok. Don’t get me wrong, I liked Bangkok, but it is an exhausting and busy city.
I felt I was able to enjoy a bit more of the local flavour in Chiang Mai – and on foot, a novel approach after a complicated web of Bangkok streets. I didn’t have time to jungle trek while I was there, but there’s plenty to do in the city itself. Here’s some photos of my time:
The Night Bazaar is actually pretty interesting, probably some of the better shop I came across in Thailand. I also got to witness this policeman singing to help the homeless.It’s also home to the many giant Buddha’s that grace across Thailand.
