    The Chidlom markets itself as a fresh breeze by the river, and it is. This restaurant focus on Southern Thai food, so it prepares your taste buds for explosions of chilli.

    Little Istanbul used to be a small hole-in-the-wall type of restaurant; now, it has taken over the restaurant that used to be opposite what used to be the Royal Princess hotel in Chiang Mai. So it is in the middle of the night market on Chang Khlan road. This is not an area we frequent […]
