  • Khao Soi Khun Yai | The most hyped Khao Soi in Chiang Mai

    Khao Soi Khun Yai | The most hyped Khao Soi in Chiang Mai

    If you Google Khao Soi Khun Yai and view it on Google maps, it will show busy and probably with a waiting time of 30 minutes or so. We found that information very accurate. I have to say I am extremely skeptical of places that are so hyped like Khao Soi Khun Yai. Waiting for…

  • Camping in San Kamphaeng Hot Springs

    Camping in San Kamphaeng Hot Springs

    I have been to San Kamphaeng hot springs many times throughout the years, but this was my first time camping. We went there on the second of January which was still a public holiday in Thailand. A compensation day because the first of January was on a Sunday. So obviously it was very crowded. However,…

    Mae Kha Canal | A Taste of Hoi An in Chiang Mai

    Mae Kha Canal opened up as a cozy, touristic market area about three months ago. With the illumination by the narrow waterway, the highlight of the area so far was the Loy Krathong celebration. With the two bridges, there is more than a hint of Hoi An to the area but to me, there was…

    Happy When it Rains but..

    I’d love to recite The Jesus and Mary Chain on their classic, Happy when it rains but recently we had a wee just too much of it, that is the rain. The Ping river is expanding, we are seeing quite a few flooded zones of Chiang Mai and cracks start to appear in mountain roads,…

    The new food stall area near Ratchapreuk

    There is a new food stall area near Ratchapreuk. Ratchapreuk is the Flora Expo area in Chiang Mai. I have been out of town for a while, when I left I was wondering what purpose all these white lottery- stands would fill. But, yes I guessed it was related to food. It turned out really…
