What Travel Costs 7: Chiang Mai, Thailand (& Hyderabad, India)

The main purpose of my trip was to go to India to undertake a promised visit to my friend Rukmini to catch up. I chose to fly via Bangkok rather than take a cheaper trip with another airline through Kuala Lumpur or Singapore. There were two reasons:

  1. To visit my nephew’s new baby in Bangkok for the first time, and
  2. I wanted to end up in Chiang Mai and this way was the least hassle.

I left Australia on the evening of 18 February with Thai Airways and arrived Bangkok at 3.30 am on the 19th (9.5 h flight). This was a really stupid idea on the basis that coming from Canberra, if I caught the 10am flight I’d have to spend an expensive night in a Sydney hotel. I’ve since found a cheap alternative near the airport and the saving wasn’t worth it!

I’m sorry, but it has become impossible to run two parallel full posts.

  1. That meat stand reminds me of the street markets in Vienna. The meat from those markets was tastier and fresher than that from shops. I can only imagine how delicious the Thai meat must be.

    1. The meat stands and the markets in Chiang Mai are marvellous as is the food. I missed the meat markets when I was in Vienna but saw them in Bologna another gourmet town and they were great. One small comment the markets in Chiang Mai are probably not as hygienic as you’ve become used to in Vienna but that is made up for by the incredible variety of exotic foods available.
