The morning of my flight to Chiang Mai, I checked in online and had that sorted. Good thing I did that as I noticed my flight is from Don Muang Airport and not the big airport where I arrived.

My airbnb host explained that I can the train to the last station on the BTS line and then get a bus from there for 30 baht. Much better than 400 baht to the airport I guess. It all went so smoothly, I was actually way too early for my flight so indulged in some fast food before my flight.

It was a short 50mins flight and then I finally arrived in Chiang Mai.

Upon leaving the airport I ordered a Grab and it took my to my hotel I booked for a few nights just to settle in while I do some apartment hunting, where I'll be staying for the next 2 months +. It's a scary thought, but as everyone told me, that how you do it in CM.

The night I walked around and explored the Nimman area, where I'll be base myself. enter image description here Of course, I'm still super new to everything in Thailand, but so far it looks impressive. I had dinner at the food court in the Maya shopping centre.. I should really learn to eat at more local places. The noodles was great regardless.

Tomorrow I have to start finding some cafes and maybe even think of getting an apartment organised.
