|We spent a steamy, sweaty morning and early afternoon wandering around Bangkok. We ended up at Wat Pho, one of Bangkok's most renowned temples, famous for it's huge reclining Buddha statue. Shortly after, we headed to the airport and flew to Chiang Mai. Here our travels slow down a bit (and we are ready for it!) We will be in Chiang Mai for 9 days, 4 nights in the northwest of the city and 5 in the southeast. The northwestern part of Thailand is home to a lot of beautiful mountains and national parks. Our plan is to get in a bit of hiking as well as sightseeing in downtown Chiang Mai.
