Chiang Mai Sunday Night Market
We arrived in Chiang Mai early this afternoon. We were told that we had to go to the Sunday night market. We did not know what to expect, but it was supposedly the place to be. So true!! The streets were packed and it seemed never ending. The market probably covers 12 blocks on the main street and then 1-2 blocks on each of the side streets. It was amazing!! There were various goods, foods (see picture below (grass hoppers, bamboo worms, crickets...but only at one stand) and services. We took advantage of the foot massages after we were done. We spent a total of 7 hours exploring...we are tired. We are heading off to the room to prepare for river rafting tomorrow.
