Thailand, Chiang Mai
I can’t believe that our 6 weeks stay at Chiang Mai almost over. On Jan 19 will be flying to one of our favorite cities, Kuala Lumpur, where we plan to obtain a new Thai Visa. During our 10 days stay we’ll see old friends, do some shopping, and indulge ourselves with so many things this city can offer.
The last few days Chiang Mai continues to surprise us with the new cafes, parks, Wats (temples), and people.
Here are a few pictures taken during our short motorbike ride to the Huay Kaew waterfall.
When you are done with the sightseeing, you can boost your protein intake with these local delicatessens.
After the waterfall, we drove another 10 km to Doi Suthep Mountain, where we visited the 14th century Wat Phra That Doi Suthep (Buddhist temple).
We climbed more than three hundred steps up to reach the temple. I would say that it is too touristy for us.
Kids dressed up…asking for money…
As a reward you get spectacular views from the temple’s terraces – breathtaking!
And here are the pictures from around another temple, Wat Umong.
I forgot to tell that we love Chiang Mai and will come here again for 4-5 months at the end of 2015.
