flyingk8’s Travel Diary

Monday, 23 Jul 2007

Location: Chang Mai, Thailand

MapWe caught an overnight train lastnight from Bangkok to Chang Mai after spending the day taking a boat up the river and then a tuktuk to go visit the beautiful temple of Wat Arun. Also squeezed in some shopping on Khosahn Road which was great & very reasonably priced.

This morning we arrived in Chang Mai around 7am and got a lift to the hotel where we were able to check in straight away (phew!). We all showered and felt refreshed, had some breakfast and then while some went on a learning how to cook trip, three of us with our tour guide, Sunet, hired biked for the day (50 baht each) and he showed us around Chang Mai and to the old temple. Had a great day.. even though I feel like a tomatoe (!!) -I had to throw out my sunscreen after it leaked ALL over my bag! -Thankfully it was at the bottom so didn't get on any of my clothes, but I had to save my towel and sleeping bag!

Tonight we are having a group dinner and then tomorrow we head off on a trek to visit a hilltribe, which I am really looking forward to! :o)

..And now.. off to find my aloe vera gel!
