🏔Chiang Mai is truly beautiful!
The mountain, sound of birds chirping, and the fresh earthy smell as you walk away from the city center and into the forest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is somewhat touristy here but it is not as busy compares to other big providences in Thailand.
We rented a small red/black scooter the day we landed and slowly made our way up the mountain to be rewarded with this gorgeous view. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, on our here we got pulled over by a Thai police for not having an “international driver’s license” 😑 + ฿200 fine... which is like $7... nothing serious but it feels like they are just really targeting tourists for easy money.
The police officers were smiling like it was all fun and game.
They were literally pulling over EVERYONE riding a motorbike. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anyways, that was just a little rant 😂 enjoy the Mountain View!
