Feeding the pigeons in Chiang Mai

Feeding pigeons at the Thapae Gate in Chiang Mai - Thailand

At the square in front of Thapae Gate in Chiang Mai are many pigeons and for some reason (Chinese) tourists find it a highlight to feed the pigeons and make photos / selfies of that. For me it was amusing to watch and make photos of.

Update : The reason why Chinese like this is that there have been a Chinese movie made in Chiang Mai where this was a scene in the movie.
