As inspiration for traveling in Thailand, follow me getting lost in Chiang Mai. I love to start walking in any city and just follow my nose, I call it "Getting Lost". So while in Chiang Mai I am walking from my hotel near the Night Bazar into the small streets of Chiang Mai and found many beautiful old temples. Yes I have seen many temples, but here in Chiang Mai you will find some different style of temples. Like the one of the photos here with a "little dangerous looking snake" and the beautiful wooden decorated temple building. I love to walk around and make photos of the buildings, people and normal life on the street. Highly recommended! In Chiang Mai are 2 area's that I like the most, first the area between Thapae road and Loi Kroy road. Then the area between the moats, mind you this is a big area! You could walk here for days.
