Traveling: Chiang Mai


It's the holiday season again! Just finished my school term so my family decided to travel to Thailand, Chiang Mai x Bangkok for 5 days. We took the Thailand Airline, Royal Silk to Bangkok first (8am) and then transit to Chiang Mai which took about another hour. 

On my first day over at Chiang Mai, I actually fell down while walking on the street. It's definitely not the best way to start my traveling journey~ read on to find out what I did during my first day there!  


The in-flight services offered at the Royal Silk (Thai Airway) is quite comfortable but their breakfast meal wasn't really as good as I thought, their portion for their meal is pretty small too. 


After traveling for 3 hours 45 minutes inclusive of the transition from Bangkok to Chiang Mai! We checked in to the Mae Ping Hotel after which we visited the central plaza which is their shopping centre to grab some lunch and see their local foods and souvenir. 

The shopping centre actually offered free wifi however they will need your passport for clarification in order to give you the username and password (meh) . 


I know it's rather weird but we actually went to eat at a Japanese restaurant in Thailand. I ordered the fried pork set, their pork literally have no oil and it tasted like chicken. 



Then we packed some mango sticky rice back to the hotel! This mango sticky rice is rather unique because the sticky rice come in various colors and it just look so appealing and appetizing. 

This colorful mango sticky rice not only look pretty but it tasted good too, it's also quite cheap - $3-$4. 


Then we head over to their night market street which we discovered a local Thailand restaurant and decided to have supper over there, this is kind of like their starter platter with some fried pork oil skin, raw veggies, chicken and Tom yum otah. 

It's definitely different from what I usually eat in Singapore. 



While visiting their convenient store after I fell down to grab some plaster and medicine to apply on my injured knees and hands. I discovered the super adorable Lays potato chips bag, totally need to snap a photo with it. It comes in various designs but I like this design in the sky blue bag the best. 

That's all for my Day 1 in Chiang Mai, thank you for reading (: will update more during the next few days.
