Foodtrail In Chiangrai Day 2 – Chiangrai, Thailand


Began day 2 in Chiangrai pretty early by catching the sunrise at the rooftop of the hotel. Buildings in Chiangrai are not tall, maybe because of regulations on building heights. Anyways it was a pretty long day so be prepared to scroll down like mad. More of what I see, food wise was limited ‘cos I had very full brekkie at the hotel which lasted the whole day. Anyways, check out below:

Sunrise, what a nice cool morning at 14 degrees
