6 Days 5 Nights Relax at Chiang Mai (Day 1) | 废人废生活的清迈6天5夜行 (第一天） Day 1
With Thai Airway, we fly at 8:10am early morning from Penang, arrived and transit Bangkok at 8:50am. Fly from Bangkok at 10:40am, we had arrived Chiang Mai at 11:50am. The total flight journey including transit time just took us about 5 hours, compare with Air Asia, longer time spent for transiting is actually a big waste. This is also another reason why we chosen Thai Airway.
By the time we touched down at Chiang Mai, taxi driver that we reserved through hotel already waited us at Airport. We quickly grab a free phone sim card and local map, then proceed to our first hotel, Baannamping. On the way to hotel, taxi driver dropped us at local market to buy some fruits, cup noodles and junk food.
当我们抵达清迈机场，司机已经正在等待迎接我们。我们快速的取了当地免费电话卡及地图，就前往Baannamping住宿。途中，我们请求司机停放我们在当地巴刹，购买些水果。我们买了三包各20Baht的水果，准备回旅馆享用。再到隔壁的Tesco Lotus Express买些杯面及零食，就回到旅馆。
Fruits, junk foods and cup noodles
After checked in to hotel, we had our lunch at hotel's restaurant. The meals are not as cheap as what we had expected. A plate of fried noodle Pad Thai is 150Baht, fried rice is 150Baht, apple juice is 85Baht. For taste wise, fried rice is the best, although it does not look attractive and portion is very small, but it really tastes superb. Pad Thai is their local food with sweet and salty taste. The noodle is actually thin version of our koay teow. We expect for fresh apple juice, but it was just a juice from box packet.
抵达旅馆放下包包后，我们就到他们的食堂用午餐。打开菜谱，发觉价钱并没有想象中便宜。以为一盘饭面只需50Baht左右，但并非如此。由于肚子已在打鼓，所以就点了一盘炒饭150Baht，一盘炒面Pad Thai 150Baht，及一杯苹果汁85Baht。
After meal, we returned to our hotel room, started enjoy our free and easy life. After rest, we borrowed motor bike from hotel to Baan Tawai Village. This place sells many wood products and we like those wooden product so much. If you like wooden product, this is the right place for you!
吃饱后，我们回房休息，开始废了起来，这无忧无虑的感觉真好。废够后，我们向工作人员借了电单车，问了方向后，就到附近的Baan Tawai Village瞎逛。途中不知正确位置，就询问当地居民，他都很乐意的为我们指明方向。没多久，我们抵达目的地，当地所卖的木制物品，比我们想象的还多，只可惜很多都是带不回的，比如座椅橱柜等等，但也有些小样物品，就如灯，装饰品，礼品，服装等。我们购买了木制吊饰品，80Baht一个以作为纪念。
The shops at Baan Tawai closed at 5pm. After shopping, we went to night market near to our hotel. It is a small night market but there are plenty types of food. Foods are cheap and delicious too. Papaya salad 25Baht, fried port skin 20Baht, pork ball 10Baht for 10pcs, fried "yao zha kuay" and pandan custard 13Baht, egg tart15Baht, crispy hat biscuit 10Baht, sago dessert 5Baht. We returned to hotel to enjoy the foods we bought, we liked most of them such as the appetizing papaya salad. We faced some difficultly when purchased papaya salad, we do not understand their language and want to ask them the price for papaya salad, we asked the aunty "How Much?", she did not understand us at all, and pointed us what they sell. I looked at the menu and point at number "25", she knocked her head, from there we guess it is 25 baht. Although we faced communication problem, but their help and positive attitude had warm our heart. Unlike many other places, when you ask and nego for price, but in the end you decided not to buy, you will get scold by the shop owner, but we did not see this happen in Chiang Mai.
逛了没多久，差不多傍晚五点，店铺开始关闭了。我们前往当地的巴刹购买晚餐。由于第一次逛当地夜市，看见当地的食物，即便宜，看试又美味，所以很兴奋地，买了一样又一样。当中有木瓜沙拉25Baht，炸猪皮20Baht，猪肉丸10Baht10粒，油条和Pandan Custard 13Baht，蛋塔15Baht，香脆帽子饼10Baht，沙谷甜品5Baht，及水。看，都很便宜吧？买完后，我们回到酒店享用晚餐。木瓜沙拉超好吃，是由青木瓜，红番茄，青茄子等，再加上各种调味品所调出来的。酸酸甜甜非常开胃。还记得我们买沙拉时，问他们"How Much?"，他们完全听不明白我们问什么，只在比手画脚告诉我们她在卖什么，后来是看到牌上的价钱表，随便指一指才能让她明白。虽然语言完全不通，但他们用心来明白我们的疑问，及路人的乐心帮忙，温软了我们的心。至于其他的小贩，也是非常的友善，态度非常好，当你提问问题，或者购买东西时，他们都是以微笑来对待你。不只如此，就算问了不买，他们也OkOk笑笑回应你，并不会给你脸色看，和香港人实在是天地之差呢。吃完晚餐，我们继续废，就这样过了清迈的第一天。
