Travelling up to Chiang Mai on the overnight train ... 12 hrs for 10 UK pounds each ! what a bargain :o)

a typical street in Chiang Mai which is surrounded by a canal


Chiang Mai is known for its temples ... and we stayed very close to the oldest in the city (names to follow!)








this temple was ruined by an earthquake but is being restored


its a shame the other three sides are ruined


tiff ... feeling a little tired


and at the food market it seems to be spreading


we decided to take a Thai cooking class ... first stop, the food market


and here is Tiff in total control ....


and Paul .. a 'crazed' firestarter


south of Chiang Mai we went trekking ... but not by foot


around this mountain


and down some steep runs .. which were a little scary at times





but the views were worth the ride


next stop was a visit to the local hill tribes


a little better than our guesthouse .... :o)


where everyone is busy making something for the farang (tourists)


not the cleanest flute


we then walked through the jungle


to visit the Mong tribe that live in this lovely location


on a day trip we ventured into the hills on this friendly beast ..... scary in places as it was a steep path


a spot of rafting anyone ?? hit a few rocks on the way down ... surprised i did'nt end up soaked
