Bangkok (again!) and Chiang Mai
Chiang Mai Travel Blog› entry 4 of 6 › view all entries
Hellooooo from Chiang Mai! Its a really nice hot day today and we are having a day off from all the stress and hard work of travelling about and seeing things!! We had a well deserved lie-in this morning and have been lounging by the pool this afternoon! Ha ha!
We left Bankok on Monday afternoon having had 3 nights there. On Friday night we went out for a few drinks with my friend Vicki who is also travelling at the moment. It was lovely to see her and very surreal that we met up in Bangkok after not seeing each other for about a year and a half!
On Saturday we spent the afternoon at the Ocean world near Siam square which is really good! It had one of those glass tunnel things you can walk through and so many big fish and sharks and stuff! The Ocean world is one of the best aquariams we've been to! Its located inside a big shopping mall which me, Vicki and Miriam decided to go to on Sunday for a nice girly day and some serious shopping therapy! I also had my hair cut - which I was very nervous about but it was fine! And it only cost around a fiver! We still can't get over how cheap it is over here!!!!
We arrived in Chiang Mai on Monday afternoon along with Rosie and Karina who have come to Thailand for a 3 week holiday and are with us for a couple of days in Chang Mai then meeting us at Xmas too! Yay!
Yesterday we went on an elephant trecking tour (again!), which included a visit to a couple of hill tribe villages and a ride down the river on a bamboo raft.
We visited the night market last night and will be doing the same tonight!!! Its massive and sells just about everything, clothes, shoes, handbags, keyrings, handicrafts... deathstars - you know, the usual!!!
We have spent quite a few days now in Chiang Mai.
Merry Christmas Everyone
