A blog with beautiful pictures collect many Asia journey.

Month: June 2020

Write some words and take some photos to commemorate my slow life in Chiang Mai for one month.

As a professional travel agency TOUR LEADER, not only because of work to frequent Thailand, in my 8 years of backpacking travel career,

Thailand is also a very important country. I have changed three or four passports. One third of the visa countries are Thailand. Of course, Thailand is the most suitable country for me to stay.

However, I am in love with Chiang Mai, a small town in northern Thailand. In recent years, I have to go to Chiang Mai several times a year, either working or traveling. I am a very lazy person, every long trip

When I came back from the trip, many friends asked me to give me a strategy, but I was too lazy to write every time and occasionally sorted out my feelings during the trip.

But this time I decided that I wanted to leave some what for my one-month slow life in Chiang Mai, and I also hoped that I could bring it to my friends who had not yet gone to Chiang Mai.

Something different. Now I have completely given up the what Restaurant recommended by what Raiders, which is full of Chinese tourists.

Place gives me a headache. This time, because I met all kinds of friends in Chiang Mai, I learned about the weekend second-hand market, ONE TOUR, which tourists seldom go to.

Not to go to the black temple, as well as various English schools and investment in Chiang Mai to buy information.

Never wrote travel notes, So I also don’t know how to write standard travel notes, I hope everyone will understand my freedom and laxity. Think of what to write about what. Many friends asked me, why do you like Chiang Mai in so many beautiful places in Thailand? Is it just because of the beautiful climate? I really didn’t know why I like Chiang Mai what before, but now I really understand why I like it, because I like the lovely people here, so I fall in love with it.


There are not many direct flights from Shanghai to Chiang Mai. Jixiang Airlines and Eastern Airlines have direct flights.

If you choose cheap airlines, Asian Airlines and Spring Airlines, Asian Airlines can fly from Shanghai to Macao, Macao to Chiang Mai or Shanghai to Hong Kong and Hong Kong to Chiang Mai.

In addition, after February 21, AirAsia will open direct flights from Hangzhou to Chiang Mai.

And this time I took Chunqiu Airlines, Shanghai-Bangkok, Bangkok-BUS (NCA) Chiang Mai

There are many flights to Chiang Mai in Bangkok, and there are also many traffic. Thailand’s domestic low-cost airlines include not only AirAsia but also Bird Airlines, which is very cheap to catch up with the promotion.

RMB, of course you can also choose the train, but it is often delayed, the air conditioner is very cold at night, and it is also bumpy, suitable for people who have a lot of time to swim slowly.

And now I basically choose to do NCA bus, to Chiang Mai for 8-9 hours, if you don’t need VIP seats, then it’s not too big to buy tickets that day.

Problem, I am basically GOLDE CLASS, the fare is about 120 RMB, the car will send water, snacks and food, the service is good to explode, the car also has

WC, vip seats have game console, LCD screen, chair with massage function, but vip position is very popular, it is best to book half a month to a month in advance.

It’s worth experiencing.

Transportation from Airport to Ancient City:

According to the instructions to enter the country, the entry staff can now speak basic Chinese, so there is no need to worry about poor English. After coming out, there will be

TAXI sign, and then tell the staff where you live in Chiang Mai, the staff will write a song list for you, and the vehicle can choose.

If you have more people or luggage, you can choose SUV with a price of 150B. Of course, you can also come out to find TUTU or put together two strips. TUTU100B or so.

However, it is recommended to take a taxi directly.

Traffic from NCA Station or Aka Bus Terminal to Gucheng:

Basically is double, if package double 100B or so, if SHARE double basic 40-50B, TUTU see you bargain level is average


Ancient city traffic:

As long as you go anywhere in Chiang Mai ancient city, the two lanes are 20B. Stop the two lanes and ask the driver if you can’t get to the place you go. Get off and give it to 20B.

One person can do it

Chiang Mai Accommodation;

There are a lot of accommodation in Chiang Mai, with various prices. If you like the ancient city, you can live in the ancient city. If you don’t like the ancient city, Ningman Road and Peace River

Both sides are good choices, and this time I stayed in Chiang Mai for 35 days and lived in three places, two GUEST HOUSE and one rented respectively.

Month house, but according to my experience, no matter where you live, please consider the quietness of the accommodation. Nowadays, more and more tourists are traveling to Chiang Mai.

There are many people and cars. Chiang Mai is full of motorcycles. The sound can really keep you awake at night. The hotel in the quiet alley is mine.

Two choices.

This is GUESTHOUSE, where my second family lives. It is quiet and comfortable. There is a beautiful courtyard in a small alley. It is ranked in the top 6 in HOSTLEWORLD. It is old.

Outside more, the boss is very enthusiastic, although the room is simple but quite clean, the room is cleaned twice a day, and the toilet is also quite clean.

Washing clothes 40B/KG, I live in DORM a bed about 30 RMB

I don’t know the reason of what, the picture capacity exceeds the limit and I can’t send the picture. This time I didn’t bother to do post-processing for the picture because I took many films.

Change to small size, is the original picture hair film, have know the kiss, please tell me how to deal with

After finishing the English school course in the following month, I went to rent a house. Most of the apartments in Chiang Mai are located in KAD on HUAY KAEW Road.

SUAN KAEW is near the mall, because there are several 7-11 houses with convenient life, and there is a TOP MARKET, which has apartments from 3500B a month.

To 25000B, but many apartments need to be rented for 3 or 6 months, and the rent for one month is relatively higher, of course along this line.

There are also many apartments near Chiang Mai University on the road. Many foreigners rent houses near shopping malls because foreigners have long holidays.

Of course, there are many Chinese like me who take English courses. There are supermarkets and food courts on the lower floor of this shopping mall. The food is cheap and delicious.

I am a semi-vegetarian person. I like GREEN SALA in the supermarket best. 30B is cheap, delicious and sufficient. The taste of lettuce with good raw materials cannot be compared in China.

In addition, when we are all eating genetically modified foods, Thailand does not allow genetically modified products.

Chiang Mai Market:

Many friends who have been to Chiang Mai know Saturday market and Sunday market, There are lots of cheap things in the market these two nights. There are a lot of delicious snacks, but in recent years I feel that these two markets are not as good as before. Good young people design fewer and fewer things. The prices of goods and goods are also rising every year. It is very difficult for me to find anything interesting when I visit these two markets now. In fact, I am a person who seldom goes shopping at home or abroad. I am very interested in clothes and bags, and I don’t know much about famous brands. I also get the so-called awareness of some famous brands because I help my friends or girlfriends bring things when I work. However, every time I go out to travel, the market, the market and the school, I have to look at them.

In a chat with my friend Bema in Chiang Mai, I learned about this flea market, which only sets up stalls on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The market is far from the old city near the Royal College. From the ancient city seat double 40B, In the end, the driver did not know this place and asked many people to get there. This is a place that makes me crazy. I can see my favorite small objects here in recent years. I went there three times in my last week in Chiang Mai. It is hard to say exactly what attracted me so much. For me, what I enjoyed buying second-hand things was the story behind it. I would like to share two stories with you.

The first story: about love and time

Because this market is rarely known to tourists, Face of China can hardly be seen, So when I appeared in the market for the third time, all the stores said to me in a friendly way, hello or Sowatika, When I appeared in front of this Thai doll with different styles, the store owner was an elegant Thai mother with exquisite makeup. I like to tell me that the five dolls are 30 years old and are birthday gifts from her grandmother when she was a child. I have been with her for 30 years. “That is very precious to you. Why do you want to sell her?” I asked. “Grandma has been thinking of her for a long time after her death. I hope to sell these five dolls to the people in Butong so that they can know the story of my grandmother and my miss and love for her. I think it is very meaningful to commemorate her in this way.” After listening to her, whether it is true or false, even for this story, I am worth taking one of them.

The Second Story: About Coffee and Music

When I was wandering around this market for the first time, I was suddenly attracted by the aroma of coffee. I was a person who loved coffee very much. Behind me came a song praising me for SO BEAUTIFUL. I smiled at him and said THANGK YOU just passed by. When I came to the market for the second time, He greeted me gracefully and said I REMEMBER YOU, After taking a seat, he personally made coffee and invited me to drink coffee. While I was drinking coffee, he played and sang on his guitar. In small talk, I knew his name was YUTHASART B, and there was a country music band composed of four old men, named CHING MAI COUNTRY MUSIC STROLLER, who sang in a hotel by the Ping River every night. On weekends, he came to the market to let everyone enjoy his coffee and music. Drinking coffee and listening to music, my heart is warm, and I like to do pure things like this. In a materialistic country, everyone is so impetuous. I am also very glad that I can like and persist in my work and devote myself to it.

Chiang Mai Thousand People’s Hotpot

Before coming to Chiang Mai, I saw other people’s strategies on the Internet saying that Chiang Mai’s 1,000-person hot pot was good and worth a try. Therefore, during the trip, I wanted to arrange a night to see the 1,000-person hot pot. It happened that today coincided with Saturday, which happened to be the weekly Saturday night market. After weighing up the opportunity to go to the Saturday night market, I chose to taste the 1,000-person hot pot, thinking that the Sunday weekend night market must not be missed.

We found the owner of the travel agency where we booked tomorrow’s trip and asked her to help us write the address of the hotpot for thousands of people in Thai. We took the small note she wrote to us and found a doodle car that took 70B to send us to this place, which is in the northern suburb of Chiang Mai City, some distance from the city center. When we arrived, we saw several hotpot restaurants of the same size next to a long street. The driver of the doodle car who pulled us here didn’t come here very much, and it was not clear which one was better, but he was very enthusiastic to help us ask the local people and took us to the hotpot restaurant.

When we went, it was still early. Only one table of guests had just arrived on the eldest brother’s field. The boss leaned against his chair and looked at the TV on the big screen on the wall.

The sign reads 128B for each person. Most of the 1,000-person hotpot restaurant in the suburbs is eaten by local people. There are not many foreign tourists. There is only one waiter here who can speak simple English. This is not very convenient, but it is nothing. Anyway, the buffet does not need to order other dishes. Everything except beer is free.

We didn’t have dinner early

There are many varieties

Similar to our sauce, there are three different ingredients, one of which I can’t stand, and the other two are not as delicious as our traditional sesame sauce, ha ha. Can’t do as the Romans do, can only make do.


It’s all ready

The meal is about to open.

This is placed on every table. It can be baked and rinsed.

All kinds of vegetables

All kinds of meat


Come back after eating

Don’t take more

Adequate supply

And seafood

Several cold dishes

Mineral water and fruit juice are free, beer is not free.

Free juice, it tastes good.

Beer is more expensive than rice. How about a large cup of 150B

Send a basin of ice to each table.

The lively hot pot for thousands of people

The lively hot pot for thousands of people

The lively hot pot for thousands of people

After eating hot pot, I can’t find a taxi and stroll in the streets.

[Thai Happiness] Phuket’s Wedding Photos Return from Deep Tour ~ Super Many Wedding Photos PP ~ (Continuously Updated)

It has been a long time since I paid attention to 51 families. I first paid attention to the follow-up, make-up and follow-up of 51 wedding follow-up shops. Later, I found that his family also had wedding photos. It has developed in an all-round way. Mighty! ! Dragging up her husband’s original intention to set up a wedding photo set around Chengdu in one day, she was killed directly by a big poster of Phuket’s seaside sunset. Then she asked about the price of Phuket’s photo, which was too awesome. It was lower than that of Chengdu’s local photo. She was free of the staff’s air ticket and accommodation sharing fee, and the original film was sent to the driver for free. She also chartered a car and oil bag. It’s too attractive. Although their family doesn’t send photo albums Lamy, their husband said that those books are floating clouds. Photos are the most important. Because of the limited number of places, they decided decisively to change the location and go to PHUKET to play with his family. Because it was the first set to go abroad or to travel freely, my husband and I were still very uneasy at first. Which one called us both English blind? Thanks to Coke, we have prepared a super-tough Phuket travel strategy. People have already been to Phuket in 2010 to step on the spot in depth. I went there to take pictures of several groups of guests. I have covered food, clothing, housing, transportation and play, and I am qualified to publish a book. I have basically thought of all kinds of problems that may be encountered and how to solve them from the beginning. Thank you very much for your coke children’s shoes. I took the trouble. to be escorted by the “kit” given by coke. We are very relieved. The modeling is done by water and water. My request is simple and natural, to avoid studios and not to be too fancy. Water always knows my thoughts completely, Praise one! ! Photography is led by his uncle 51 and has a strong lineup. Uncle 51 belongs to a wise star. Basically, in Phuket, there is nothing he does not know. It was not until Uncle 51 that you knew what a “deep tour” was called Husband said that he could pretend to be a local in Phuket. Mo’s problem was…. I think their family’s high cost performance is definitely related to their good cost control. Fat G belongs to man show type, Wahaha haha haha, the whole shooting was hard for everyone, Neither of us can POSE. Uncle 51 gave full play to his strong points in snapshot. He took it while playing. It was easy and felt very natural. Also, wedding dresses were specially purchased for Phuket shooting, styles were dim-eyed. and their underwater professional equipment, pull boom oh, but my husband and I were landlubbers and did not dare to try. Later, I saw other people’s underwater fantasy and regretted it a little,

The Different Elegance of the Grand Palace

The Different Elegance of the Grand Palace

The tour bus was parked on a narrow street. I saw several pointed roofs on the white wall and a small door not much bigger than the ordinary gate. I really couldn’t believe this was Thailand’s Grand Palace. There is no dignity in front of Beijing’s Forbidden City, no luxury in front of Paris’s Versailles Palace, and no magnificence in front of Vienna’s Meiquan Palace. Is it famous all over the world just because it is Thailand’s political and cultural center and the seat of the Privy Council, the Ministry of Finance and the Palace Affairs Office?

There are rules for entering the grand palace: no sleeveless jacket, no short skirt on the knee, no loud noise, no photos in the jade Buddha temple, no……. We joined the crowded * * and began to visit. When checking tickets, you should check your clothes. Those who fail can rent clothes. Fortunately, we got the tour guide’s attention in advance, and no one was embarrassed about it. On the left side of the door was an open hall, and a armed guard looked coldly at the crowd. The guns on the steel frame are eyeing up, which makes me, who touched the guns since I was a child, somewhat frightened. In the green grass-shaded palace courtyard, the Bodhi tree exudes the breath of holiness. The unknown little flowers swayed in the wind and set each other off with the little girls playing in the lawn. Steel guns and flowers, guards and girls, indifference and gentleness, these diametrically opposite factors constitute my first impression of the Grand Palace.

The sun near noon brightened my eyes. When I put on sunglasses and opened my eyes, I found that what brightened my eyes was not the sunshine, but the resplendent and magnificent buildings in the courtyard. Completely different from the simplicity in front of the door, the whole palace is surrounded by strong gold. Sharp gold roofs, high gold colonnades, gold sculptures and gold murals. I seemed to walk into a gold mine, surrounded by gold. I feel as if all the gold in the world is concentrated in the palace, and the description of “Curse of the Golden Flower” is not too much here.

Jade Buddha Temple is the largest temple in Thailand, also known as “Guguo Temple”. We took off our shoes on the shoe rack under the steps and entered barefoot. There are Jade Buddha Hall, First King Hall, Buddha Bone Hall, Sutra Depository, Bell Tower, Urn Pagoda and other buildings in the temple. They are towering and straight, and focus on the characteristics of Thai Buddhist temple architectural art. The hall of the Jade Buddha Hall is tall, and a jade Buddha carved from a piece of emerald jade is enshrined on the 11-meter-high decorative box ritual stage inside the hall. The Buddha is 66cm high and 48cm wide. It sits cross-legged and has a solemn statue. Its exquisite sculpture can be called one of the world’s best. When the season changes, the king holds a grand ceremony to change clothes for the Jade Buddha with his own hands to protect the peace of the country and the people. We looked at the photos shown by the tour guide. Jade Buddha showed his shoulders in hot season, one shoulder in rainy season and priceless gold wisp clothes all over his body in cool season. This jade Buddha is regarded by Thais as a “treasure of the town” and photographing is strictly prohibited. Many good men and women in the temple bowed down, and I also respectfully folded my hands to express my respect and awe.

The layout of the palaces in the Grand Palace is very compact and exquisite everywhere. I kept taking pictures with my camera, only to find it difficult to take the overall elegant demeanour. Looking around, all kinds of tourists attracted my attention. Take a group of small photos of foreign tourists to show the unique style of the Grand Palace from another angle. Graceful blondes, rough and tough middle-aged strong men, rich and peaceful fat aunts, shy and timid young beauties… People gathered in this magnificent palace from different countries, different cultural backgrounds and different origins. Not only is it Thailand’s political and cultural center, but also because the Grand Palace is a symbol of the Thai dynasty. It records Thailand’s long history and culture and is a treasure of architecture, painting, sculpture and decoration. It is hard to say that you know Thailand without carefully and seriously understanding the Grand Palace.

I really can’t remember the tour guide’s complicated explanation, and I haven’t been able to distinguish between the king and the princess and prince who live in what. I just admired the beautiful, exquisite and luxurious buildings all the way, leaving exclamation marks in this unforgettable gold…….
