Chiang Mai: Light decorations and dinner at the night bazaar

After exploring the Tiger Kingdom and the handicraft villages we made our way back to the city centre. By the time we arrived it was already dark, so we just wandered around the streets and the area surrounding the Tha Pae Gate.

The gate itself was decorated with nice lights, but surrounding it were lots of silly light sculptures. I guess, Air Asiana sponsored them, given this airplane…

… and the cheesy famous European sights, including the leaning tower of Pisa:

Those lights here, in front of one of the bars in the city centre, are much nicer:

After strolling around for a while, we went to the Night Bazaar for a fresh seafood dinner and lots of drinks. Apparently fresh coconut with rum has become the drink of choice for the boys!

The open air restaurant was right in the middle of the market, with a big counter at the front, where you could see all the fresh ingredients they had for the night. We picked grilled and steamed fish from the menu, some green curry and the all-time classic, fresh mango salad.

Another great night out in Chiang Mai – except for the long-ride back to the B&B where we staid. Unfortunately we had not read the descriptions carefully and it was in the middle of nowhere…
