the moated city

For Songkran we bought super cheap tickets on Air Asia to head up to the small city of Chiang Mai in northwestern Thailand. I thought celebrating in Bangkok might be too crazy and Chiang Mai is known its longer, more laid back festival. The whole country celebrates for about 5 days full of water fights during the hottest summer month.

It was my first time in Chiang Mai, a city I hope to move to some day (it is much more my style, I am sick of the big city) and I really loved it there! It is the 6th biggest city in Thailand, a nice change from Nonthaburi, the second biggest city and where I currently live. I think it is AMAZING that Bangkok has 5 million people as the biggest city in the country and then my area, right outside the city, has only 260,000 people, yet is still the second biggest.

Cheongdam interactive map - made by me for you ^^

Since it can be a little difficult to track things down without one of these I thought I'd put one together. I'm hoping to add more in future. This is a map of Cheongdam which is nearby Apgujeong. I've placemarked some restaurants and bars and also a few places to shop. You can click on the map to see the names and basic information of places I've marked. You'll also be able to work out how your going to get there using this.

I will be writing blog posts about many of these places in coming days/weeks so check back if there's nothing about it yet. Please feel free to contact me by email or by leaving a comment if you have any questions about any of the places I've listed, I'll be happy to try and help you.
