You know I really did like Chiang Mai and I know that if I was staying in a different hostel I would have enjoyed my time more. But, at the time I just wanted to go to Pai, where I hoped things would be better.
And even though I was starting to feel ill on my last day I still went out, as I really didn’t want to be at the hostel with my ever-present and obnoxious hostel mates. They were quite terrible actually, they made fun of the new German guests who seemed like perfectly decent guys. I couldn’t wait to get away!
After visiting all of the temples I just walked along the wall and through the center, exploring parts of Chiang Mai I hadn’t seen yet. I also ate the famous Kao Soi soup, the Curry Noodle soup that Chiang Mai is known for. It was amazing, spicy, full of flavour and the crunchy noodles added a delicious texture!
