We spent the first few days being shown around by our friends who live in Chiang Mai. They were lovely enough to give us a ride from the airport straight to our first meal. So, I’m really terrible at remembering the names of where we ate but The Boyfriend has a whole map marked with the places we visited in case specifics are required. Some of the photos aren’t the greatest but at the time getting into the food was more important than trying to get a better picture. A big thanks to James and Suranee for all your help and company on our holiday, we’ll have to return the favour next time you come to Brisbane.
Rice congee with pork meatballs, ginger and coriander. It was the first thing we ate in Thailand. Apparently it’s Thai comfort food and it did the trick after the overnight flight.
