rich culture and heritage

Chiang Mai....

in short,

its a city with the most friendly, helpful, easy-going and smiley people that make you feel right at home even if you do not speak a single word of Thai.

its a place where the unique cultures and lives of its residents are beckoning to be discovered and understood.

its a debate hall where shopkeepers and their customers have gentle arguments over what they think the price of a colourful piece of silk should be.

its a first; the first time i've gone on a trip alone to meet other people whilst focusing on my own view of the city.

its a wonderful place.
