Leaving Chiang Rai for Chiang Mai, our KPmini rider stopped at a repair shop by the roadside to change the engine oil. You donâ€™t have to know the local language to communicate with motorcyclists. Just ask for the price and the mechanics get everything done perfectly.
Itâ€™s lucky to see some real vintage bikes here.
In the evening we arrived in Chiang Mai, the second largest city of Thailand. During the traditional Loi Krathong Festival in November, Thai people always light candles floating along river port or lakeside at night, expressing their love for each other in the fragrance of flowers and musical rhythms.
Pageant staged in the center of the Old City Plaza features beauty contest for both girls and boys, surrounded by festooned floats.
People light up and release sky lanterns, wishing the best for future. Tourists from all over the world, speaking various languages with different skin colors, joined each other in the joyful gathering.
Our rider seems to enjoy great popularity with fellow travelers.
Wandering in Chiang Mai in the morning, you never know how many wats are here watching the city, serene and solemn, far away from the hustle and bustle of last night. A new day has begun, and our travel will go on.
