Sawadikap. Khao soi?

There was something alluring about Chiang Mai. Was it the small town feel? The mountains? The people and their sincere friendliness? Was it their cuisine? The northern charm is vastly different from Bangkok.

It was a very last minute unplanned trip. The weather wasn’t ideal, where there was rain and mist during the three days we were there. But it added to the beauty of Chiang Mai, a tranquil town surrounded by mountains and rice fields.
