Chiang Mai, Thailand

There was a big thunderstorm yesterday night, followed by the first rain of 2019 in Northern Thailand. Rain means cooler days, which is great news. However, rain might also cause a giant tree 🌳 to block the road for more than one hour. Quite an experience!

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.

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chaing Mai is full of Buddhist temples or "Wats". Each of them has something that makes them unique, but "Wat Phra That Doi Sethup" might be the prettiest I've ever visited. Located at the top of a mountain, it's best visited at night, when the lighting makes the gold shine even more. Plus, you have a beautiful view of the city.

Back in Thailand! Now I'll be doing the north, that I skipped on my previous visit. I'll also be spending some days with 2 old friends. After constantly meeting so many new people, it feels awesome to have familiar faces to talk to.
