Iíve been having crappy internet connection, I finally uploaded photos, so here we go. Iím still in the process of uploading more photos and a video clip on youtube, however.
I know many people love seeing photos on Ride Reports, so I explain photos first, then you can read my trip detail later.
I went to Thailand last winter for 3 weeks starting the end of Feb. I stayed in Bangkok for first 2-3 days, then flew to Chiang Mai, the 2nd largest city in Thailand maybe around 600km north of Bangkok. I happened to like that city, so I stayed there near the end of my vacation, then took the train back to Bangkok and spent last 3-4 days there again.
Why Pad Thai Ride? You canít deny the connection with Burrito Rides, but pad thai is one of my favorite Thai food, and easy to pronounce, most places can make one. At street venders or at markets, if I see something nice being enjoyed by other customers, I simply point that. If I donĎt see any, I simply order pad thai.
I start with photos in Chiang Mai.
Bike parking is everywhere in Chiang Mai, free at most places. Note there's almost no bicycles, which is different from places like Japan and Netherlands.
Chiang Mai street scene.
I didn't see to many drivers talking on the phone behind the wheel, but at least they banned it....wish it's coming to BC.
