Hmong–Bhubing Palace-Doi Suthep

Sawadee Khrap

I got a surprise call from a old friend from Pattaya, Edty, that he was in town and Thursday we took a trip to Doi Suthep.  First a stop at the Hmong village at the top of Doi Pui, then on to Bhubing Rajanives Palace – Royal residence in Chiang Mai20151224_141225 – spent a hour there seeing the sights and then on to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep . From here you get a spectacular view of Chiang Mai City.  20151224_152332 On the right side is the International Airport and 20151224_150616the “Old City” about in the center of the shot.  We got a lot of shots and so 20151224_140206I put them in a Slideshow Gallery.  This shot shows me pretty exhausted – lot of walking, good exercise but never the less very tiring.  When you come to Chiang Mai be sure and visit these sites – we took  a  “songtaew”, the Red truck Taxi, and a Golf cart tour at the Palace – total transportation cost about  1000 baht or  $28 for 5 hour tour.   Can’t beat the price and convenience.  Then there’s always renting a motorcycle – but not for me.
