Around Chiang Mai II

Friday, October 7, 2011

Some more general photos from around Chiang Mai, Thailand. 

We have one more post planned from Chiang Mai's night market, and then we'll move onto our adventures in the next country over, Laos (involving a 2 day travel by boat down the Mekong River).

Bikes and scooters are golden when the traffic is bad in Thailand.
This woman is tough driving two kids on a scooter! We saw kids and babies on scooters often. Sometimes a family of four (mom, dad, two kids)!
Girls in skirts and heals sit sideways in the back of a scooter. I don't know how they don't fall off. 
The uniforms on school kids are darling.
Fish spas are popular all over Thailand. You put your feet in the tank and the fish nibble on the dead skin of your feet. Gross but cool! I would have tried it, but every time I opted for a full-body massage instead.

  8. I don't think I would be able to stand having little fish nibble on my feet. That's has to tickle like crazy!
