Our three days in Chiang Mai were spent wandering the rather charming streets, which oozed with a lovely cafe culture vibe, arts and crafts shops and beautiful temples. We saw a lot of temples, almost to the point that it's hard to distinguish them from one another now. But we enjoyed how these environments were living breathing public places, where people come to worship, study or just relax in. We did a lot of people watching from shaded spots and loved seeing school groups listening to talks being given by monks. We wandered the gardens, observed various rituals, admired the architecture and enjoyed the atmosphere.
