31st May 2016 – Chiang Mai
Hello Chiang Mai! Touched down at 1355hrs via Tigerair 2176. Got a complimentary airport transfer to the hotel. We are staying at this Thannatee Boutique Hotel which is very thai styled wooden furniture kind of theme.
We rest awhile before heading out to hunt for dinner and go for the night market. The roads are crazy with heavy traffic at this point of time about 1700hrs thai time 1800hrs Singapore time. Vehicle moving is never ending. Even the paths for pedestrians are very limited and narrow.
Not long after it just downpour. We got wet on our first day. Ride on a tuk tuk because grabtaxi seems to be not happening to work here as no taxis are accepting our request.
Thank god we reach our dinner location. A local thai chinese restaurant called Ruammit1 halal restaurant. Food was nice and there was local school from Singapore who came via bus to have their dinner here. Even after the food was done, rain didnt stop and we then decided to skip the night market and go back to the hotel.
Thats our day and we use the shared jacuzzi in our room to end the night. Hope for good weather and exciting things in day 2. Happy June!
