Daily Wanderlust: Chiang Mai, Thailand

Written by on July 22, 2012 in Daily Wanderlust, Destinations - 8 Comments

I’ve been in Thailand a little more than one week now. (Yes, my blog is behind, sorry about that.) Each night, after work, I head here, to the little line of restaurants that line the road en route to Chiang Mai Gate.

There are three restaurants in a row — Indian, Thai, and French/Italian. All of them have Thai, but I love the little things that make each of them different.

On any given night, sitting down at any of these spots gifts me with lively conversation over beers and the intoxication that this is my life now.

Enjoy the view!

    You think you’re behind? I’ve been out of India since the end of May, in Thailand since then and living in Chiang Mai for 3 weeks now…and I’m still finishing up posts from April in India! Oops. Good thing there’s a never-ending supply of coffee shops to work in here :)
