Pai, Thailand

I couldn't leave Pai without visiting the Tham Lod Cave, which had been recommended to me several times. You go into the cave accompanied by a local guide who shows you the different rock formations. A tour in a (very precarious) bamboo raft was also included, which was definitely the highlight of the visit for me.

Pai, Thailand

Today I went on a full-day tour that covered most of the touristy stuff around Pai. Because we're on the dry season, some of the destinations where pretty underwhelming: the waterfall had no water, and the rice fields were just dirt fields. However the hot springs were a nice surprise (they weren't so hot) and the Pai Canyon was amazing for sunset.

Pai, Thailand

Pai was described to me as a small town with island vibes, just without the beach. Confusing description, I thought, but now that I'm here, I totally get what they meant. There's not much to do in Pai, so time seems almost not-existent. Most people just chill, going from the pool to the bar, and then back to the pool.

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai's Old City is a perfect 1.6km (1mi) square, surrounded by a moat wall, although little of the wall still remains. After spending a day mostly eating and drinking coffee, I took my evening bus to my next destination: the small town of Pai.

Chiang Mai, Thailand

There are hundreds of Elephant Sanctuaries in Chiang Mai, however several of them don't get even close to the definition of the word. After lots of research I found @elephantnaturepark, which not only rescues and homes dozens of elephants, but also works with local businesses to convince them to stop elephant riding and to become elephant sanctuaries. I spent my day feeding, walking, bathing, and playing in the mud with these gigantic and beautiful creatures. Definitely one of the best days of my trip so far 🐘.

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Street food markets are the soul of Asian food culture. A trip to southeast Asia is not complete without a visit to a local food market. Try a bit of everything: exotic fruits, spicy dishes, local desserts, etc. A strong stomach is recommended.
