|Thapae square in Chiang Mai, North Thailand|
While living in a small village in a far away province you are sometimes missing a good restaurant, a nice pub, a good hospital or whatever is a good reason to travel to Chiang Mai. So we left in the early morning and did ride to Chiang Mai. We are never in a hurry so we always stop near Phrae for an breakfast and stopped near Lamphun for an early lunch. The latter was a bit of a disappointment and I would not come back there anymore. Already a few times we had been driving to Chiang Mai and passed this European looking restaurant with the name Delizia Garden. So this time we stopped and we both had an spaghetti for lunch and it was both not good. I could make it a long story but the bottom line is that I will not come back and I would not recommend this place based on our experience. But next to the restaurant is a wonderful local jungle market that is worth stopping and have a look what the locals buy as food. As we have been so many times in Chiang Mai already going there is for us not about sightseeing but about meeting friends, have a good dinner, shopping and just enjoy life. So following are a few reviews of places where we did go.
