Foodie Photo Journal: Chiang Mai
I think it is well known that Trav and I love Thailand.
While there are many reasons why we love this country – the people, the customs, the beaches – FOOD is at the top of the list. Eating well and eating cheaply is easy to do in Thailand. Some of our favorite meals have only cost 1USD. So we thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite foodie memories of our most recent trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand.
I should probably begin with Trav’s favorite dish. The one he ate for five consecutive days and still dreams about when we are away from Chiang Mai.
The best place to eat Khao Soi is at Khao Soi Mae Sai.
This dish is a Northern Thai speciality and it only costs 1USD.
I love cooking, and Trav dislikes it. However, when in Chiang Mai we always take a Thai cooking class and even Trav becomes enthusiastic.

Chiang Mai has many food markets but our favorite one is located north of the old city – Tanin Market (also called Siriwattana).
