The HLGCBS feedback for Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai

Time to leave Thailand, as it only offers a 30 day tourist visa. But we had a great time in Chiang Mai and here is our feedback. The ingredients are Highlight(s)? Lowpoint(s)? Goals reached or missed? Had a crush on some / many things / body? Bane(s)? Surprise(s)?

Let’s start a High, Low, Goal, Crush, Bane, Surprise! GO!


  • Chiang Mai has it all – the South-East-Asia style, endless temples to look at, day and night markets. A modern city that is easy to get around.
  • There is an endless amount coffee shops and they all have fast and stable wifi. You can find a new place to work from every day and by simply walk walking around the next corner.
  • You never feel threatened or have security concerns at the slightest. People show so much respect towards each other; there is no aggression or theft, you just know you are safe.
  • The traffic still flows. Compared to Bangkok, driving or getting around is a smooth ride.


  • Rainy season brought the clouds too far down to see anything at the highest point of Thailand.
  • Speaking of rain. The humidity is usually 80%+ which can be challenging.


  • Experiencing the northern part of Thailand and its mountains –> Check. We did an amazing hike through the jungle
  • Using every form of transportation once –> Almost made it. We used a normal taxi, a tuk tuk, a Sŏrng·tăa·ou (basically a taxi-sharing service) and a car. But we didn’t take a motorbike, just never needed it.


  • The food! Thailand has amazing food and you can just trust it to be good at every street stall and every corner.
  • There is at least one place for a Thai massage in every street of Chiang Mai and the full 2 hour package is affordable and soooo good. It will be sorely missed.


  • Thai efforts to make westernized food. It tasted horrible. Just stick to the real Thai meals or go to restaurants that are dedicated to a specific country.


  • You can find everything in the supermarket. Seriously they have food from every country that has expats here. And there are many to choose from.
