rose of the north

Chiang Mai, located in the rolling foothills of the Himalayan mountains, is the fifth largest city in Thailand. Centuries old, it was only until recently - 1920 to be exact - that journeys into the city no longer required difficult river travel or elephant treks.

Rumor has it, the city is quite beautiful, with the largest number of temples per square mile, and remnants of its walled past. But I spent too much time receiving daily massages (which in my humble opinion are the best in all of Thailand), learning how to cook Thai food and spending the evening hours wandering down the massive night markets to even take notice of the city itself.
