Chiang Mai

Well, a six hour overnight layover in Shanghai was just as bad as it sounds but I’m back in lurvely Daegu with a week off before starting the new semester on Monday.

Chiang Mai really does feel different than Bangkok, let alone the rest of southern Thailand.  While a major city in its own right the Old City gives off more of a Laos/Cambodia vibe — slow bordering on soporific, plenty of Euro-hippies, and a temple or wat on every corner imaginable.

And while northern Thai food was predictably awesome, I also managed to score some great Japanese and Indian meals as well.  I’m now desperate to find a Japanese style tsukumen joint in Daegu — sushi places are everywhere, Japanese style ramen not so much.

It was a really nice way to recharge before teaching again.
