I went back to Chiang Mai for a quick trip. It was only a week but I’m glad I went back. I got to do things I hadn’t done before and really just had a better feel for the area overall.

I drove up to Doi Suthep which for whatever reason I never bothered to see the first time. The stairs to get to the very top destroyed me way more than I thought they would.  While driving up to the temple I tried to see a waterfall too but it was closed because of flooding.

I went to Pai for a couple days too. Which I finally got to see Lot cave. However like I mentioned earlier the cave was partially closed. I wrote about that trip here.

I was there during an interesting time though. The king of Thailand happens to be a very big deal. I was there for the week/day of his cremation. Not much was different except for the fact that nearly everyone was wearing black.

I also ate at a lot more places and did more exploring on a bike. Also was able to see the local university there. Are all college campuses the same world over?

After this I flew to Malaysia and Singapore! Much more exciting I think.
