On my first trip to Asia I’m visiting my friend Jessica in Chiang Mai, a lovely city in the North of Thailand – full of temples, monks, street food, flowers and all kinds of different motor vehicles.
From Chiang Mai I also visited the temple on Doi Suthep and took a day trip up to the top of Doi Inthanon, the highest peak of Thailand – where I saw waterfalls, a hill tribe village (purchased handmade scarf for the cold winter I’ll return to too soon), memorials to an old king and temples for the current king and queen.
I’ve already spent too much of this cherished time in Thailand editing this video, so I’ll skip a longer description and head back out to enjoy Chiang Mai some more before leaving for the beach and Bangkok tomorrow.
