Scenes From My Week

We took a trip to Chiang Dao this weekend. It’s a pretty little mountain side town, where we went last year for Toby’s birthday when I was 7 months pregnant. It was fun to go back with our (almost) 6 month old boy!

  1. These are amazing! The second image is very Nat Geo. I have always wished that I had been able to explore more of Northern Thailand. Only made it to CM twice. I'll have to look at a map to locate this place.I love being able to see these places through your lens.

    • Thanks! Yah, Chiang Dao is about an hour north of Chiang Mai, so it's a really convenient getaway. I love the north; it's generally cooler and the mountains make for lovely scenery. We're talking about taking a trip down south to the beaches later this month though–if we can just get off our butts and make the reservations! :)

  2. Beautiful. How lovely that you get to enjoy such a place. And the yummy snacks look very yummy.

  3. I have to agree with Kim that that second one is very NatGeo…. I love it! I would love to visit there . How easy is it to get there from CM? We usually now opt for holiday spots that have direct flights in and out.

    • It's a real easy drive that takes just over an hour–and you could sight see along the way (Tiger Kingdom, elephant treks, etc. are up along the same road). There's not much to see in Chiang Dao though, except for a cave. But if you're looking for a quiet getaway, The Nest is a lovely spot that has yummy food.There are other pretty resort getaways nearer to CM if you like. The Veranda is really nice. Let me know if there's anything in particular you're looking for!
