Chiang Mai Adventures (Pt. I)

I know this is super late, 
considering that I came back from Chiangmai (otherwise known as the Rose of the North) last year (30/12/2013)
BUT I still wanna share all the fun I had there!

it was an anticipated trip,
to getaway from SG and intern and all the bullshit;
to be with family 
and to return to CM to meet up with my friends again!

“WHY do you have friends in CM?”
Well, last year in March, I went for YEP Chiangmai (Youth Expedition Program) where we had city homestay, village homestay and helped build an extension for the children’s school. 
It was an amazing experience and we made thai friends too^^

Since Bangkok is rioting, CM is a good alternative place to travel to in Thailand(:
It’s more artsy and laid back.

Without further ado, LET’S GO TO CHIANGMAIIIII
Ps. I look kinda horrid in some photos due to the lack of makeup, please forgive me?

Took a really small plane with only one aisle. :/

And we’re off into the cloudsss

My sumptuous breakfast on the plane; the start of my eating frenzyy while on holiday!
After a 3 hour flight; we arrive in Chiangmai!

The whole tour group was made up of my family; except one elderly couple.
Even though we were still full from the breakfast;
we went for a buffet lunch at some hotel which was pretty but (the food kinda sucked honestly)

The only good dish! Loved the soup^^
With the kids; me being the eldest cous mehhhhhh

Me and my gramps; I put extra effort to take photos with them (while I still can)

Our only itinerary for day 1; was to visit Wat Phra That Doi Suthep 
Other wise known as “The Golden Temple In the Sky”

We took our version of the “Red truck” which is like a bus form of transportation in CM to the temple.

The roads were honestly bumpy and winding as we made our way up the mountain!
When we arrived, 
we were told that we had two choices: 

1) Climb 300 steps to the temple
2) Pay for the cable car lift ride. 

GUESS WHICH WE CHOSE HAHAHAHAH

This tree cheers me up; could just sit here and read a book all day.
