Royal Park Rajapruek

It's time for me to start writing again as I plan to take an English examination in 1 or 2 months time. The fee is kinda expensive, hence I need to stop slacking around. I spent the last 2 days researching on this exam and with that amount of money I'm gonna pay, I need to pass with flying colors! Huhu.

Hi! *waves*

My project just ended in early July and I am so relieved! The past 6 months were a nightmare. Almost everyday, I stayed back late and sometimes I even came back to work during the weekends. Really the "no-life" kind I tell you. 

Anyways, right after my project, I had a trip to Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, Thailand. Nicely planned isn't it? It was a birthday gift for Dad. Two or three years back, I bought him air tickets to KL / Penang as birthday gifts and it has become a practice nowadays. It makes me wonder where we will going next year. LOL.

I'm back!

Our flight was at 7 am and we reached Chiang Mai around 9 am. Since I'm traveling with my folks, we opted for tour of course. Parents should be more adventurous, don't you think? Hehe. Our first stop was the Royal Park Ratchaphruek. The Ratchaphruek is actually the national flower of Thailand.

Stupid software simply cropped the pic.. :(

Big lake surrounding the garden.

So green everywhere! ^_^

This building featured the Lanna (one of the states in northern Thailand) architecture.

Royal Park Rajapruek is basically a very large garden with beautiful landscapes. You can find different international gardens reflecting nations like Japan, Malaysia, South Africa, etc. Different kinds of trees, tropical plants and flowers can be found here too.

Bicycle anyone?

20 Baht per pax. This is considerably cheap.

After that, I had this super duper delicious curry mee called Khai Soi. It's not spicy but sour, just like tomyam. It's so yummy that I had it again the next day at some hotel.

I opted for Mihun as I'm not a mee person. LOL.

Stuff you add into the Khao Soi.

I'll blog on Wat Doi Suthep tomorrow. If you're off to Bangkok, you must visit the Grand Palace. If you're off to Chiang Mai, you must visit Wat Doi Suthep. LOL. I'm just repeating what people say! So stay tune for more!
