Chiang Mai

sunny 28 °C

Sawadee ka!

Chiang Mai is a village in the north of Thailand. It is much bigger than I had expected it. Chiang Mai must be the only city in Thailand where the number of wats is close to the number of 7/11's.
Here's some pictures:

Chiang Mai is also the tourist hub for trekking tours in the mountainous north of Thailand. I could not find any tour without elephant safari and bamboorafting shite, so went downhill mountainbiking instead which was lovely though quite tough and technical.
In the background, through the ever present fog, you can see the mountain we rode down.
