    The lantern festival in Lamphun lights up the town

    The Lantern Festival is currently on in Lamphun. The small town in the South of Chiang Mai is really a chamber of treasures. It is well worth the ride to visit Wat Phrathat Haripunchai temple at night time to see people making merits here. Since it is illuminated at night the best time is dark. […]

    Somtam Slider |Another 50 baht waterpark in Lamphun

    Somtam Slider, yes can not really believe the name of the place but it is not a joke. That is what it is called. I don’t know how many local water parks there are around Lamphun but have to say that this was better managed than The Sun that we went to during the pandemic. […]

  • Happy When it Rains but..

    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, […]

    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 […]

    Chiang Dao local Hot Springs | It takes only one Japanese to create an Onsen

    The Chiang Dao local hot springs are just three kilometres off the main road to Fang and Chiang Rai. You turn just by the new courthouse, where the road splits in two.

  • Jerns — an unexpected, incredible burger restaurant in Chiang Dao

    Jerns — an unexpected, incredible burger restaurant in Chiang Dao

    Jerns burgers allege to be the best burger place in Chiang Dao. I don’t know, but it was surely unexpected that it would be so great. It is nicely retro-decorated as a 1960s living room and has a very extensive menu. Moreover, it is not expensive. The impression is that some real American food lovers […]

    The Chidlom | Restaurant & Cafe — a nice Southern breeze by the Ping river

    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. However, the restaurant also has a bar section with some real high-quality Scotch whisky options and decent selections of draft beer(even though few were […]
