After a short flight to Chiang Mai, we were greeted by Kevin Honare & ITDP staff who presented us with threaded frozen jasmine garlands. We were given an induction for our trip before catching up with the Jolls for a lunch of Thai noodle soup & sweet Thai tea.
No rest for the wicked! In the afternoon we were driven then walked up (too many steps) to look at a Buddist temple featuring an elaborate gold-plated pagoda.
Dinner was at Chris Joll's recommendation at a local Muslim restuarant. We were treated to an amazing feast ( complete with chilli eating & fish eyeball tasting) all for the price of NZ$5 per person.
The day finished at the Chiang Mai Market where Jennifer & Emily indulged in a luxurious Thai-style foot spa, which involved hundreds of hungry little fish & lots of giggling!
