Chiang Mai: Ploen Ruedee

Hello from Krabi!

I am a little bit worn out from the travel yesterday from Chiang Mai to Krabi, but I am happy to be relaxing in my hotel room writing this post. I will hopefully be able to hit the highlights of my stay in Chiang Mai, so if anyone would like to travel there, this post may be of some use. If you have any questions or would like more detailed information, please contact me via email (provided under the contact tab).

My first night I planned to visit the Chiang Mai Night Bazaar, but I stopped at the Ploen Ruedee Night Market instead. The Chiang Mai Night Bazaar was a bit further of a walk, but seeing as I was tired, Ploen Ruedee Market was more than fine with me. Ploen Ruedee opens at 6PM and is open until Midnight. This market is set up like a square with many stalls offering delicious foods and drinks. There is always a live band playing in the square, if you want to sit right in front and enjoy a couple of beers. I opted to sit on the benches closer to the food stalls. I personally dislike crowds, but the amount of people in this area was perfect. It was not difficult at all to find a seat. Also walking around Chiang Mai in general did not feel dangerous at all. There were always a good amount of people walking around and the night life was bustling. I apologize for the shakiness, but this short clip is just to give everyone an idea of what it is like walking to and into this market.


I am going to provide some pictures with captions in slideshow format of the walk to the night market and the night market/food below.

Ok, that is it for now. My next post will include elephants and more of the daily life.
