4 November: The Beauty of Chiang Mai... Old and New.

THAILAND | Sat, 4 Nov 2017 | By gatornav | Views [449]

Today was a great all-around day. We had arranged our own private “song teow” (two rows) truck to take us on a private tour up the mountain today. Sounds expensive, but it isn’t. The funny thing is that a driver will charge 300-400 ... Read more >

THAILAND | Thu, 2 Nov 2017 | By gatornav | Views [471] | Comments [2]
