As a Bangkokian,
25 years of living in this tropical city,
I couldn’t feel the changes of any seasons.
Cause here is the land of summer.
Even the weather in Bangkok is hot all year round,
but the most hottest period is around late March to early May.
I think the heat of summer reaches the peak around mid-April,
which is on Songkarn holiday, Thai traditional new year days.
Here comes the illustration of summer.
Inspired by the summer vacation of my childhood.
Chiangmai Trip 16-19 Jan 2015.
It was my very first trip there in a fresh start of 2015.
After being a full time art teacher and art tutor, a part-time illustrator, and a student were drained all of my energy to go traveling or even creating some art piece for my own sake!
Eventually I quit my permanent job to become a full time artist.
(I’m not so sure if this is a right decision and wondering if I can make it through or not but I’ll try my best ;) )
So this was a self-given gift for being a hard-working one in 2014 and for my 25th birth day present in January.
The Places I’ve been :
1. Tha Pae Gate
Historical landmark, lot of stall foods there.
2. Nimmanhemin Road
Popular road for travelers. Bunches of nice restaurants and cafes.
This is a place I accidentally met my student’s parents!
3. Doi Inthanon National Park – Kew Mae Parn
Thailand most popular nation park. ‘Doi’ means ‘mountain’ in Northern Thai language. Kew Mae Parn is the nature trail in Doi Inthanon national park which has stunning scenery and full of oxygen from the greenery forest. This place limits its period of time to visit for retaining nature : November to March.
4. Wat Phra Tat Doi Suthep
Attractive spot for tourist who has passion in buddhism or traditional Thai art.
‘Wat’ means ‘Temple’.
5. Chiangmai University
I went there for my friend’s rehearsal day. She graduated medicine from Chiangmai University .
6. Riverside Restaurant
Nice restaurant. Some might say that the taste is not good but it’s delicious for us. ;P
7. Baan Tuek Art Centre
A small, nice, friendly and cosy art centre in Chiangmai. My beloved teacher exhibited his works there.
8. Mae Rim – Mon Jam – Queen Sirikitti Botanic Gardens
Enormous botanic gardens in Chiangmai.
My trip mates in Doi Inthanon : Mod, Namtarn, and Pink.
