After the mean(ish) streets of Mandalay, Chang Mai with all it’s charm and endless delicious Thai food was a very welcome change. We ended up staying for nine days and loved exploring the pagoda-lined streets and the surrounding endless hills.

For me, the obvious highlight was seeing an actual real-life panda at the Chang Mai zoo, however, the 3D museum/gallery, incredible street food and our day moped-ing around the hills were all amazing too. We were also there during the annual flower festival, which was pretty impressive.
