A day in Chiang Mai

Thapae Gate in Chiang Mai - North Thailand

During my recent motorbike trip in North Thailand I did stay 2 nights / 1 day in Chiang Mai. I have been many times in Chiang Mai, I lost count. Nowadays I come there to enjoy good western food as that is in Nan very limited to get. And this time I went shopping for some motorbike related things. So I choose my hotel cheap, with private parking for my motorbike and near the old center of Chiang Mai. This time it was Imm Thapae Hotel. I still like the old center of Chiang Mai with the small streets, small restaurants and markets. The first evening I had dinner at the always good Chez Marco Restaurant (highly recommended) at Loi Kroh road. The second night I had a much less good experience at another restaurant (no I won't mention the name) but for the first time in at least 20 years I did send it back with the remark to throw it away. I do not know what they did with my Beef Filet but it did look like it was overrun by a truck and it did smell & tasted like it had been in this state on the street for a week.

While walking on Loi Kroh road you are also passing the beautiful decorated The Teak Baan Sakthong Restaurant (next time I will eat there). Lunch time I like to spend along the Ping River, this time the lovely Mamia Coffee (Thai Restaurant & Coffee shop) right along the Ping River.
