THAI-ing for this place

My love for elephants, meditation, and Thai Food are just a few aspects that drove me into taking a trip to Chaing Mai. The people, the culture, and the activities are definitely an experience of a life time. Here is a couple pictures that gives you a glimpse of Thailand.

(P.S: Food will be featured on a different blog post)

  1. “Say Wat?”

Fun fact: You can locate a wat that is within a distance of 200 meters apart from each other. The most popular  Wat that you need to check out is the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, Wat Chedi Liam, and Wat Chedi Luang.

  1.  Elephant Jungle Sanctuary

Oh man, you guys! This was one of my favorite activity that I have partaken in Thailand. This program tour activity basically gives you a brief overview of what elephants are like. The plus side to this is that you can bathe and feed the elephants! It was sooo awesome!!

  1. Night Bazaar/Market-

I don’t know what it is, but in Asia, there’s usually a tradition in what they call a night bazaar, which is similar to a Farmer’s Market. It’s basically  where you can bargain for high-end items at a cheap price.

Although four days was a wee bit short in Thailand, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Learning about the culture through areas, food, and activities are what made this trip a gem.
