Chiang Mai, Thailand is a popular destination for both western and Asian travelers. We spent two weeks there, taking in the scenery, exploring the sprawling old town, photographing the temples, and enjoying a few relaxing activities.
It’s a city where most travelers will feel comfortable exploring on their own. Chiang Mai celebrates its own history, welcomes new traditions, and is very accommodating to the visitors that flock there from all over the world.
The search results for the lantern festival in Chiang Mai turn up a lot of dishonest results that try to convince travelers to buy expensive tickets to exclusive events. In this article, we explain why that’s not necessary and how you can have a great time for free. Of course we have the photos to prove it!
In this article we detail our experience getting Lisa some much needed vaccines after two years of non stop travel left her a little behind schedule. We get into all the concerns we had – safety, sanitation, cost and language – and talk a little bit about the hospital we chose while we were staying in the old town.
