Chiang Mai, Thailand

January 9, 2016

If I were to write down all the things I love about Thailand, in this case Chiang Mai, I wouldn’t know where to begin. Which is probably why Im so lost for words in writing about this trip. Bangkok, being one of my favorite cities in Asia (and probably in the world) swept me off my feet in ways you cannot imagine, to a point where I wanted to move there. And seeing Chiang Mai, in contrast to the hustling lifestyle of the capital, it has that calm kinda charm in it—still vibrant and dazzling, but nothing over the top.

Of course, there will always be the Thai hospitality to make you feel right at home. The people of Long Neck Village who symbolize strength and beauty. The lady boys of the Cabaret Show who stands for their own kind of strength and beauty. Chiang Mai, with its immense culture, abundance of reggae bars and home to the Northern Thai dishes like papaya salad, isaan sausages and khao soi, easily is one of those trips every curious and epicurious adventurer must do.
