The Path Which lead us from Triple Palms House to Come Chiang Mai Lanna Boutique House

According to the paper map of Chiang Mai Town, the Come Chiang Mai Lanna Boutique House is not for from our Hotel that we staying currently...

Below are the things we saw and met on our journey...




It's look like Thailand Pizza to me... How about you?! 

Big and Small cafe can be found every where surrounding you when you are here in Chiang Mai... 
This is the Muan Baan Cafe which just operate in the neighborhood... 

Tables and Chairs of the Cafe.

Just right after a few blocks of building we found another Cafe which named by Freebird Cafe and look at just something like Kampung house in Malaysia... and painting all over the wall and fancing...




Sun starting to shine eagerly on our heads... and when I swing up my arm and look at the watch, Oh... Already more than half an hour we hanging on the Street. So we decided to stop for a while and a short rest... at the mean time we saw a small Coffee store just right beside us...


We ordered a Ice Coffee to cool ourselves down...

Miracle Coffee... Taste quite well but still... 

sewing machine stand are recycle to be Table... wondering those which I saw at Malaysia, whether the idea is from here...

Hand made?


Oh, here we came to another Temple call Wat Panping...

The temples of Wat Lam Chang and Wat Ban Ping are both located right of Tha Ratchapnakhinai in the eastern part of the old city of Chiang Mai.
 These temples might be smaller but have a strong historical value to the city of Chiang Mai. Wat Lam Chang was constructed in the period of King Phaya Mung Rai and is located in an area of the old city where the elephants who once used to transport the king were held. After the contruction of Chiang Mai this wooden area used as a feeding ground for the elephants was turned into a sacred temple ground.


Wat Lam Chang in Chiang Mai
If you take a look around Wat Lam Chang today you will notice several elephant statues and a large elephant statue now formss a symbol of the wat which name literally means Temple of the Tethered Elephants. The remains of the original chedi can still be seen.



Wat Pan Ping suffered a lot of damaged after a fire took hold at the main Vihara a few years ago. Luckily there wasn't much damage to the statues in the sanctuary so the temple could be renovated in 2004. Today Wat Ban Ping, or Wat Pan Ping, is popular with tourists because its proximity to Wat U Mong as both temples are located near Tha Ratchaphakninai.
The temple has been decorated with red and gold dragon statues and beautiful mural paintings on the sides of the Vihara. In the garden behind the temple you will find the old Chedi remains of Wat Pan Ping.


We tried so hard to located this Cafe... never expect to see it here... Old Chiang Mai cafe was suppose to be located at Chang Klan Road... in a 100 Years Old Building but when we were there.. We found out that the building are under construction... We are so depressed when we found it no more in operate...
