Once again, as is customary this time of year, IMG Operations Manager Tye Chapman is globetrotting hither and yon. Here’s an update he sent this morning:
“Hello from Chiang Mai, Thailand! Just over a week into our trip, and we’re having a blast. After a couple days in busy Bangkok we enjoyed two days at Patong beach and two more on Koh Phi Phi Island where we took a boat tour and spent some time in the tropical waters. The last two days have been up north here in Chiang Mai. Last night’s Sunday market was incredible! Thousands of people convened to stroll, shop and eat. Today we took a tour of the area outside of town. We rode an elephant in the jungle and floated down the Mae Wong river on bamboo rafts, not a bad day. This evening we checked out the night bazaar. Tomorrow we’ll rest up a bit and grab a famous Thai massage before catching the overnight train back to Bangkok. From there it’s a few days in Cambodia, then home!
All is well in SE Asia. – Tye”
Have fun Tye, bring back souvenirs this time.
