We ended up staying up until 2am last night at the hostel talking to a group of fellow travellers from Canada who have given us a bunch of useful advice. They told us from first hand experience, the ones who con us are mostly European living out here scamming young travellers for a living. The bastards.
Today we explored the old town in 36 degree heat. Ice smoothies are a god send out here. They literally chuck a bit of fruit into a blender with ice and charge 30 baht which is around 70p... it’s bloody heavenly. I’ve even managed to get Dean to invest in some colourful Thai pants to cover his knees when visiting the temples.
There are just over 300 Buddhist temples in Chiang Mai. We’ve come across one every 50ft that date back to the 1300’s. Each and every one is unique and breath taking. We visited Wat Bupparam temple which was spectacular, yet far from the most impressive temple in Chiang Mai. We’re venturing to Doi Suthep tomorrow via mopeds. Wish us luck.
