(Jenny here.) So here is the 1st installment of the recent Thailand adventure - Chiang Mai in the north. Because I am now taking a leave, Sam ordered me to blog about my adventures. I guess that is a fair trade-off. :) This piece of the trip was just Yazz and I, before joining up with Kim and Matt in Bangkok.
We left fairly late Mon night, arriving about 11pm. Given we were exhausted, we got a quick bite to eat and called it a night.
Tues started with an amazing breakfast and our 1st tuk tuk ride up the hill to the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple (yeah, a mouthful.) We had great views over Chiang Mai and saw lots of gold Buddhas. We saw many more temples back down around the city before getting templed out. Then we found massages (opted not to get one at the Women's Prison - not joking) which were great. Who can complain about 1.5 hours for under $10 USD. Had a swim back at the hotel before finding dinner at a food court, where for about $4 USD I had some tom yum soup, fish cakes and a watermelon juice. I love Thailand!!! :) After dinner we found a nice riverside bar with a live band, had a few and enjoyed the music. Had a bit of rain in the evening but weather during the day was great!
