Chiang mai night

I think Chiang mai local people usually go out about sunset time.  As a traveler I had no choice even if so hot outside. Chiang mai the name sounds very calm but the city is quite busy at nights by many cars and bikes.

There is a small and casual jazz bar named ‘North East’ near the hotel Le canal boutique which I had staying. The bar name keep remained me of brand North face. ㅎㅎ

Like I wrote earlier the hotel review there’s pros and cons if you stay near the jazz bar. This time I am talking about pros. 🙂

I want to show you one of the nights of Chiang mai with short videos. Please click to my instagram.

It’s very casual and I think people love that bar. Because of the bar is near the hotel, when I’m coming back to the hotel I stopped by there. First time I went to the bar, a woman singer sang a song and people really enjoyed it. Also there were a video shooting for her at that time. Maybe she is a famous singer. The bar was crowded with people every nights.

If you can’t find the location of bar, you should search for North gate(Changpuak gate). It’s just opposite of the gate.

 

 

 

 

 

Why do you travel?

Why do you travel?

I think food is the one big reason why we travel. One of the reason I went to Thai was also food. When I’m searching for Thai, what people keep saying was they enjoyed the Thai food and it encourages me to choose Thai. To write my impression from experiences with Thai food first, It was a sad thing, I didn’t enjoy Thai food that much while I was there.

Before I go to Thai, I even memorized ‘No coriander’ in Thai.  When I’m ordering food I sometimes forgot to say ‘no coriander’ so I just had to eat or took the coriander out before eat. Someone said if you trying for more than 3 times to eat it then you’ll like it. For me, coriander is a one thing I need to bear not enjoy. Even so,  I was keep trying Thai food until I come back home. I need more chance to find out my favorite Thai food and before that time, my favorite food is Pod thai.

 

Foods I tried ( Sadly I didn’t take many photos every time I eat)

우리가 여행을 하는 큰 이유가 음식인 것 같은데, 내가 태국에 간 이유 중 하나도 음식이었다. 태국에 대해 검색을 할 때 사람들이 계속 했던 말이 그들은 태국음식을 즐겼다는 것이었는데, 그게 내 선택을 부추겼다. 태국음식의 경험에 대한 인상을 먼저 써보자면, 슬프게도 태국에 있는 내내 나는 태국 음식을 그리 즐기지 못했다.

태국에 가기 전에 고수를 넣지 말아달라는 태국어도 외워갔건만. 주문을 할 때는 그 말하는 것을 잊어서 그냥 고수가 들어간 것을 먹거나 먹기 전에 고수를 빼는 작업을 했다. 누군가 말하길, 만약 3번 이상 고수를 먹는 시도를 해보면 그 후엔 고수를 좋아하게 될거라고 했다.
내게 있어 고수는 즐기는 것이 아닌 견뎌야하는 것이다. 그럼에도 불구하고 태국 음식은 집에 올 때까지 계속 시도했었다. 나는 내가 가장 좋아하는 태국 음식을 찾기 위해 더 많은 기회가 필요하고, 그 전까지 내가 가장 좋아하는 음식은 팟타이인걸로. 이제서야 음식 사진을 많이 찍지 않은 것이 아쉽다.
