I went to Chiang Mai on the 13th of March and I’m only blogging about it now! OMG. I tell you, thanks to stomach ache, I could do almost nothing for one week. ): Chiang Mai was the only part of my holiday that I enjoyed. (:
As we only arrived about noon, we weren’t ready for a full tour, so after checking into Bau Tong Lodge, we wandered around by ourselves.
My mum drove me and my sister down to Penang on Friday afternoon and it rained slightly.
On Saturday morning, we left for Chiang Mai in the morning with Thai Airways! The flight was about 1 hour and 55 minutes to Bangkok and another 55 minutes to Chiang Mai.
The sunrise was beautiful. In this picture, my camera focused on the dirt on the window. Damn.
After checking into the lodge, we were quite starved and stumbled across this coffee shop. I tell you, there are more spas than restaurants. OMG.
Came across really funky sunglasses too!
Look at the roads of Chiang Mai, ain’t that clean!
The scary part of Thailand is their ultra complicated wires. OMG.
Passing by market after market, we saw maggots for sale! YUM.. Of course I didn’t try it. It’s not my thing!
Insect buffet. Eek!
They’re really smart to use the fruit wrapper to make fake flowers. (: But I wonder if people really buy them..
I passed by this shop that sells accessories. Their sales girls all wore huge flowers on their hair, gypsy headbands, layered necklaces and boy, they look like showgirls. LOL
Now, if it happens in Malaysia, I’ll be so happy. 😀
The amount of things each store sells is about that much. D:
They even have 3D animal hats! WOW. (I sound so shallow in knowledge ._.)
More people own a motorbike than a car. Their motorbikes are really cool! Some are really retro, some are really.. Pink. And Cute. And the pink ones are ridden by men. D:
Funky hats. (Tourists actually buy them and wear it around town!)
Their graffiti looks cool though. I hope they don’t repaint them.
One of the 1500+ temples in Chiang Mai.
I like the play of lights.. (:
We had our dinner at this restaurant. Of course, we ate Thai food, not western.
Nope, they’re not sweets! They are hair clips! Really!
Carved soaps. I wouldn’t have the heart to use them. They’re too pretty!
