More of Chiang Mai adventure.

New Year's Day saw us visiting the local park where we fed the fish and ducks, walked around a few of the shops and then had lunch at 3 SIS, then back to hotel to have a game of cards, waiting for our massage at 3 pm. Not sure why I  get a Thai massage when I come to Thailand you usually end up being more sore than when you started, so!!! off to have a few mojito's to dull the pain. Later that night we ventured out of the old city into the new city to have dinner along the waterfront. the restaurant we chose was The Gallery, great food, but service very poor.

The 2nd of Jan 2014, Alex and Cara went to "Flight of the gibbon" for the day and we organised a private toor to the Hill Tribes, Large temple on the mountain and the elephant camp. That evening we went to dinner at Whole Earth, highly recommended by locals and we were not disappointed. After dinner into the night Brazzar to do a bit more shopping.

Photo opportunity with a Yao mien lady

The long necks, interesting conversation with this lady about the neck rings, they are never removed and are quite heavy.

After the Hill tribe visit we went to the elephant camp, there are over 71 elephants at this camp and all are sponsored, we got to see the baby elephant at 3 months of age.
