Tri-Shaw, Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai, Thailand. Elephants, Tigers and Temples!

Tommo Photo Inspiration

One year ago we were visiting Chiang Mai in Thailand. Chiang Mai has a relaxed vibe, is not overly touristy and the amazingly welcoming attitude of the Thai people themselves all lift this city to be one of our favourite places in the world. In a reminiscent mood, I figured a photo blog would help me translate the essence of this fantastic destination, and the wonderful experiences we had. Chiang Mai is somewhere …
