Foodtrail In Chiangrai Day 1 – Chiangrai, Thailand


Alright this is a very late post but at least the stalls are still there last check. Chiangrai is a very nice place if you haven’t been. Less crowded as compared to Bangkok and the weather’s cooler especially towards the year end. This blogpost may be quite long due to so many things to write about. So maybe I should just stick to the food? Ok maybe food with some attractions that I reckon you should know lah. Anyways, you will be seeing a lot of food pics and please read the captions below them, and yes I ate most of them. So don’t judge ok? ;P

My lunch at Don Mueng Airport while transiting. Can't remember the name of the place but it's on the left side bside Taurus Coffee Bar. Not bad, not expensive.

The roadside stall from the front
Found this roadside stall on the road that leads to the Clock Tower. Locals eat here so I parked my car and try.
Looks like a mess but heck with hygiene, this is damn good.

Roadside eating is very common in Chiangrai. If you're not prepared for street food, then you may not be able to try what's local.

This shop sells pau. I didn't try because pau will take up my stomach space although I have a lot of HDD. ;P
