Every winter I come at least for 10 days to Chiang Mai, I love this vibrant city in the north of Thailand for several reasons. ..
Chiang Mai has still the old charm of traditional Thailand, it's pretty relaxed and beautiful to wander around.
my tip : stay in a guesthouse in the old town, rent a Chinese bicycle with a basket to put your bag and just discover all of cm beauty.
Wake up early and ride around the old city, stop and watch the temples, sit and meditate a while.
refresh yourself with yummy matcha ice tea and then when you are tired have a massage.
I love to book 30 min foot massage, following by 1 hour Thai yoga. It’s the best and you can get if for under 8 Euro. I treat myself every day for a massage or spa visit.
please check my tips for the best places in cm .
