Flight, depart Hanoi 11:15 on VJ8911, arrive Bangkok 13:05
Depart Bangkok 17:20, arrive Chiang Mai 18:30

26 hours of travelling got us from Hanoi to Chiang Mai. It would have been nice to go overland, but it would have taken longer, been much more draining and we would not have got here in time....that is in time to start our 5 day …

It's a small world after all

I jumped on the train, expecting my sleeper to be a shared but private room. Not so much, more like a booth that turned into a bed, but it didn't bother me I was on my north! finally escaping the 200km loop between Bangkok and the Islands in the eastern gulf. But again, not to complain I had a wonderful time. But it's time to move on. I had the ...

Chiang Mai

From Bangkok i took a 14 hour sleeper train there wasn't much room to do anything and i had a strange guy next to me who played the guitar, quite entertaining though. The train wasn't actually that bad as i literally just slept the whole way! I got a tuk tuk to my hostel and it is lovely big mattresses, free internet, breakfast and fruit all for...

Trekking begins!


Today was our trekking day. We had met all the guys the night before in the bar downstairs and they all appeared to be really friendly and a great laugh so we had high hopes. We had packed the bear minimum as carrying too much stuff in the jungle would not have been a great idea! When we left we first stopped off at the tourist police who c...

Heading North

We had to head to the airport early to catch a flight up to Chiang Mai, which is in the more mountainous north, not far from Burma. Our first stop was the temple overlooking the city. If there was ever a doubt that I was over temples, this sealed the deal. This one was particularly touristy and particularly overrun with tourists because of the h...

Rain, Rain Go Away

That night we left at seven p.m. for an overnight train to Chiang Mai,
a city in the North of Thailand which arrived at 9:30 a.m. the next
morning. Once again, we were in second class and shared a car with
several strangers. It wasn't nearly as cold this time, but twice as
bumpy so sleep was hard to achieve once again. At the tra...

Pad Thai and Peter Pan

In an effort to improve my kitchen skills, I took a Thai cooking class today from Nan and Pot at Siam Rice cooking school. Pot took us to the market to get supplies, taught us about odd fruits and veggies, then it was off to their home where they had set up an outdoor kitchen. 6 of us in the class, including Rachel from London, who has been teac...

    This place was well reviewed and came with a personal recomendation but is right by the North Gate where they relay political rallies from Bangkok. Ranting and raving till midnight! We moved after a couplle of days.

    A good little establishment in the Chiang Phuak (North Gate) area of Chiang Mai. Away from the more tourist frequented places of the city, but close enough to walk when you get the urge. The staff are friendly, as are the mosquitoes, but they usually get managed (the mosquitoes) by regular fumigation. Back rooms are quiet and dark, making it too easy to sleep-in at times. I have stayed here a few times now and it is quite good. recommended if you are after a cheap, yet well presented place to stay.Tip: Ask for a cheaper rate if you are staying for a few weeks or more.
