From Chiang Rai to Bangkok

On our last day in Chiang Rai, we decide to go for street photography. My son carrying a Canon EOS 400D and me a Canon EOS 550D. Our target place is the main market in the city as we heard that there will be a lot of monks during the early hours. We walked to the market which is just a few streets away from our hotel at 6 am. As expected there are already a lot of people there to offer food to the monks. WE took a lot of shots there and around the market non stop until we reached our hotel front. We had our breakfast at a mobile stall just a few steps away from our hotel, serving western breakfast.. . scramble eggs, toasted bread and hot coffee.
Our flight to Bangkok is at night about 9 pm, but because of the heat in Chiang Rai, we decide to leave for the Chiang Rai International Airport at about 3 pm, right after our lunch. The porter at our hotel offer us a special rate for the taxi to the airport at just 400 Baht.

I like your choice of camera. I have a Canon EOS 450D which I like very much.

You have taken some very good shots of the market in your post. The food looks wonderful as do the flowers. I also like the shot of the street through the shopping centre. Thailand drives on the same side of the road as we do here in Australia.

I can understand your retreat the the aircon in the airport. I have done that sort of thing myself.

Thank you for the wonderfully informative post.

Vibrant photos-you've captured the colour and sense of excitement. My son lives about an hour north and I expect after five years he's become accustomed to the heat.
