Chiang Mai is known for its many many temples and old city centre. We ventured out and went up to the most important temple, Do Suthep. Brilliant. Not so charming was the ride up the slopy mountain road in a shared taxi aka in the back of a pick up truck. I always have to see where I am going when going uphill, otherwise I tend to feel rather sickly. After strolling around in this beautiful temple with its shining golden statues and breathing in lots of incense, we headed down to the city again.

Sunday markets and a tradtional Thai massage was called for. Felt so relaxed. So good. Browsing the market stalls and our first attempts at bargaining for some accessories and dresses was really fun. So much to see and look at.
