Day Twenty - Twenty-five

Chiang Mai, Thailand


Chiang Mai, Thailand

It's been a week since I've flown to Chiang Mai in the northern part of Thailand.

The goal was to find a nice hotel and a co-working space to work together with my colleague in Thailand for the next couple of weeks.

Before and after work, we wandered around the city, but taking photos was not really a priority, so the amount of photos taken this week is relatively low.

Here's a collection of what I encountered this week.

Around the various squares in the city, you can find the skater-youth performing tricks.

One night, after a long day of work, we headed to the north of the city center to scout out a nice area where we'll maybe book a hotel room for a couple of days.

The next day, I visted a temple, only to realise half-way through that I'd seen it before on the last trip. D'oh!

Street food is everywhere in the city. From "food trucks", to little carts and stalls to road-side huts, and they all have one thing in common, it's probably delicious!

One day, on my way back from the co-working space, the central square was cordoned off, and a gathering took place.

On another nightly wander around the city we visited yet another nightmarket. (There are many, every evening).

On Saturday we rented a private driver and headed out of the city to do some Ziplining and visiting a few towns in the area.

We started with a visit to a botanical garden, which was nice, but it was hot :)

Baan Mae Kampong

After ziplining (where I didn't take photo's), we headed to Baan Mae Kampong village, for a nice lunch next to a stream.

There was a waterfall nearby.

And on our way back we hit a local viewpoint.
