Chiang Mai & Chiang Rai (Part II)

Walking out from the hotel with the guidance of TripAdvisor, i chose the best nearby local food- Mr.Kai Restaurant.

It was about 15 minutes walk to the restaurant. Along the way, we realized that houses in Chiang Mai are unique as they built their houses by their own preferences. Unlike Msia, we can't simply change the property design unless you are rich enough to bought the whole land and built your own house. Else, if your house suddenly appearing 3D in a row of houses, welcome to the saman world.


The property price in CM is jumping from MYR 100K in average.


Walking under the big hot sun is not fun thou (39 celcius!!)... If it's not because of these nice houses designs and wall arts that kept up my courage to keep walking, i will just surrender and call up a red cab... Make sure to bring an UV protection umbrella with you and check the weather forecast before you travel. We walked like Iron man on the first day because i forgot to bring umbrella over!!


The 15 minutes walk finally ended. That's the big square bright yellow banner of Mr.Kai Restaurant!


This place was crowded when i reached. Mostly are foreigners.


They have varieties of foods. From appetizers to main dish to the desserts.


We ordered Khao Pad, mushroom plate, and Khao Soi.


Khao Pad is fried rice. Fried rice is the basic for the Chinese. I believe that if the fried rice taste good, the others from the menu will not be too bad.Fried rice recipes will vary widely, depending on which countries' fried rice you have tried. This Thai version fried rice is worth to try although i still prefer the Malaysian's ;)


This mushroom plate is good to go with the Khao Pad. 


This is probably the best i have tried in Mr.Kai's Restaurant, Khao Soi.  Khao Soi is a curry mixed with coconut-flavoured noodle soup which is famous in the Northern Thai. 

I think that Mr.Kai Restaurant mostly visited by the foreigners. I don't see many locals dine in the restaurant, so i assumed that the rating was high due to the votes from the foreigners. Personally, i think that the food that i ordered were just average , but i love their fruits blended especially the coconut shakes and the guava shakes.


Continue searching for the nearby attractions by TripAdvisor...

One thing..

Never be so dependent to the location map showing in the TripAdvisor as most of them are not accurate. (I ended up wasted time walked to some random people's house or standing at the middle of nowhere while the phone's navigator is buzzing me with "You have reach your destination" for sooo many times)

Best nearby at that moment : Wat Chedi Luang


Wat Chedi Luang is a Buddhist temple in the historic centre of Chiang Mai. The current temple grounds were originally made up of three temples — Wat Chedi Luang, Wat Ho Tham and Wat Sukmin.


Wat Ho Tham


Chiang Mai is overflowing with ancient Buddhist Temples (Wats). Every temple has their story behind . Visiting temples blindly is definitely boring but not until you truly understand their history. Well, if you are going by yourself without tour guide, at least Mr.G can help you understand the temples more. This will definitely a huge credit in your trip!


There goes my first day in Chiang Mai.

*I spent the rest of my first day in hotel due to the cruel devil call regarding of my FYP...*
