Same Same But Different

As beautiful as the South of Thailand is it is spoiled by the tourist hordes. The “farang” there are treated as cattle. They take you into only tourist buses/vans, drop you in random places in the middle of nowhere and you wait without knowing when the next van/pickup/boat… will take you to your destination or another hub. Once you reach your destination the money milking starts. Always the same routine. Time to break it and go North.

I arrived then to Chang Mai. Still on the tourist trail but quite different. Prices are lower and both locals and farang nicer. It is a pretty city with plenty of temples, a few great bookshops and amazing food everywhere. So good it was that I took a  cooking lesson. OK, I did it expecting to meet chicks.
