Visiting the land of Chiang Mai

Photobucket

Once again, i went flying! another vacation, another adventure, another experience! As for this time, My family headed up to Chiang Mai, Thailand for a time of relaxation, food and sight seeing! It was a great time to bond over awesome rm15 massages, spicy tom yum's and animals galore

The Chang Thai Hotel

We headed there for 3 days 2 nights and stayed at the Chang Thai Hotel which is about 10 minutes walk from the night market. It was a decent hotel with a great price, for only RM150 a room for 3 days/2 nights. The only downside of the hotel is that our airport transportation wasn't screwed and there wasn't anybody awaiting us at the airport. But well, We hired a great taxi driver named of Mr Udon where he chauffeured us for the 3 days.

And as for the shopping, it was also great as i could buy lots of statement T-shirts for like Rm15-20 per piece. there were lots of different types of souvenirs and some really crafted beautifully. Honestly i would say its an awesome place for a relaxing vacation compared to the ever busy Bangkok or Hatyai.

Well as for this post, its mainly on the sightseeing in the city, the night market, and the awesome food over there!
