Last day and night in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai, Thailand

We decided today would be our last day in Chiang Mai. The main thing to do here is to go on one or more organised tours but we haven’t exactly heard many positive things about them. Firstly, they are far too pricey; geared mainly for package tours but there is one, which did in fact sound really good as you could go and visit the tribal villages and people in the jungle. However, by reading up about it a bit further outside of tour agencies, we heard that many of the tribal women are captured Burmese refugees made to live in these villages. So, Chiang Mai, apart from the tasty food is a bit boring if you don’t go on these trips, hence why it’s our last day. But we did have a great evening, enjoying a nice Chang Beer and a G&T in a roof-top bar, before wandering around the busiest market, we think, in the whole world! It was CRAZY!
