Elephants, Tigers and Temples
12/6/11 - 12/9/11
We spent the morning of the 6th at the beach and walking around Phuket, then caught an afternoon flight up north. Our first night in Chiang Mai we went to the night market and grabbed some dinner. Chiang Mai is a smaller town, with the "Old City" located inside a moat and a giant wall in the center of the "New City". Everything is within walking distance and we were able to wander around town and find things to do. At the night bazaar we found loads of restaurants plus any market style shopping you could imagine. Similar to the rest of Southeast Asia, there were a lot of cheap Tshirts, sunglasses, shoes, jewelry and of course a ton of knock-off items.
We had to get up early for a long day of adventures the next morning!
