It was my first time in Chiang Mai, a city I hope to move to some day (it is much more my style, I am sick of the big city) and I really loved it there! It is the 6th biggest city in Thailand, a nice change from Nonthaburi, the second biggest city and where I currently live. I think it is AMAZING that Bangkok has 5 million people as the biggest city in the country and then my area, right outside the city, has only 260,000 people, yet is still the second biggest.
We rented a motorbike one day and drove all over the city as well as up to Doi Sutep, a beautiful temple at the top of the mountain with a great view of the city.
Since most of our days were spent throwing buckets of water on children and old Thai men, we didn't do much else on our vacation there... now I am back to school for term 2 and my travels will be in the form of reading and planning for my next vacation in August. Please hurry next 3 months (and cool down so I can go outside, it is about 40 degrees C here daily, not pleasant!)
See you again Chiang Mai, hopefully sooner than later!
