The Gardens of Chiang Mai
We've been back from Southeast Asia for a few weeks now, but it still tugs at our hearts, and we know we'll go back. When people ask us if we ever get homesick, we say that we don't, but the truth is we do, in a way. We get homesick for where we just left, and as much as we are loving the Utah road trip that we are currently on, we miss Southeast Asia! Take a look at the pictures below and you'll see one of the reasons why.
The title of this post is The Gardens of Chiang Mai, even though that's not completely accurate. There's technically only one actual garden shown below and it's the King's Garden at Bhubing Palace on Doi Suthep high above Chiang Mai. The rest are restaurants in garden settings, plantings near the moat and gate outside of old city, and just pretty plants we passed by on streets. Larry wanted to call it The Gardens of Chiang Mai because that's how he remembers it - lots of inviting garden settings. In our former life when we traveled we took lots of pictures of gardens so we could go home and try to reproduce some of what we liked. Now we just enjoy them while we are there and take pictures so we can remember them later. No fuss, no muss, no gardening!
Chiang Mai holds many charms and we'd love to go back and enjoy them again!
