We left the crowded city of Bangkok for the mountains of Northern Thailand. Our first stop being Chiang Mai, staying in the Old City, which used to be surrounded by a medieval style wall built 700 years ago to defend against Burmese invaders. It was a lovely city, calm and relaxing after Bangkok.
Here we met up with Jorg and Natalia, our friends from Germany who we originally met in Goa, many months ago! We rented a moped to get us around and Jorg showed us lots of wonderful places. These were to include, the zoo, Wat Phra That Doi Suthep (one of the north's most sacred temples, and a beautiful lake where we had lunch, a foot fish spa, and hours on our moped.
Just to make life a bit more interesting it was here where Tara had a tooth pulled and James had root canal work, we can highly recommend the dentists!
In addition to the dentist, we all had a foot spa with a difference, have a look at the photo's to find out more.
