Up to northern Thailand

After finishing up in the Andaman Sea islands, I headed for the cooler air of Chiang Mai, Lampang and Lamphun in early December 2011. I soaked up spectacular temples, some of Asia’s most stunning flower gardens and villages nestled into the mountains. I even made time for a horse and carriage ride in the old town of Lamphun since, well, that’s just what you do there. Here’s a little taste of those tightly packed days.
