Although we had booked a coach for Chiang Mai late afternoon we decided it was too complicated to get back to Sukkhotai to visit more as originally planned. It is raining and cold so instead we decided to waste it and book an early coach to go to Chiang Mai.
6+ hours of bus and we have finally made it to Chiang Mai. Joy House is a beautiful place on the outskirt of town that ran an orphanage, full of children and cats. Not in town but a lovely project and recommended by friends.
The rooms are beautiful and the beds huge. There are also ten cats and two dogs.
Still raining and a bit cold (19 degree) but we have a pool again so I had a lovely swim (well me and the local children. Too cold for my fellow travellers) much needed after the long journey and teaching Audrey port royal
Felt good to just relax and do little that evening
