Another early awakening but this time I think it was due to the icicles hanging from my nostrils!
We got off the train in Chiang Mai at about 8am. I instantly fell on love with this beautiful and cultural city. Once we had all freshened up we got on a song ha and headed for Tiger Kingdom! We got to choose which tigers we wanted to play with, me and Stacey both chose the biggest and smallest. The small ones were adorable, the big ones however, a bit scary!
We then went to see a monkey show, none of us were sure what to expect... The monkeys did lots of seriously impressive tricks with numbers and basketballs but they had metal chains round their necks which made it difficult to watch or enjoy I thought.
Then, we went to visit our first temple of the trip. A song thaew journey and 306 steps later we finally got to the top and stood on front of the temple. We were all blessed my the monk and we walked round 3 times then you could make a wish. Of course I can't say what I wished for!
Later, We all went out for a Thai dinner and spent plenty money in the Chiang Mai night Market! Cheap, cheap!
Trek begins tomorrow so we all headed home for a good nights sleep!
