Chiang Mai

After our night in Bangkok as well as in a jungle raft in Kanchanaburi, amidst the ruins of Ayutthaya, and the surprisingly Thai-crowded Khao-Yai National Park, we're now in the moat-surrounded northern Thai city of Chiang Mai.

Apparently, our timing is just right for their "Sunday Walking Street" (not to be confused with their popular daily night market) set in the middle of town. The sea of humanity on this street completely dwarfs that of Khao San Road in Bangkok. Quite fun, but definitely have to keep an eye out for pickpockets and try to stay close to your party or else get lost in the "conveyor belt."

This part of our trip also marks the beginning of our long Northern Thailand journey that includes Doi Ithannon, Umphang, Sukhothai, and Kamphaeng Phet among others. We'll try to keep you posted on what goes on in this part of the trip as internet access and time are available. Stay tuned...
