We stayed three nights at the U Chiang Mai in The Old City. We really enjoyed their breakfast and location. We spent one day walking ALL over The Old City thanks to our Lonely Planet Guide Book's walking tour. There are too many temples in the Old City to count. We toured several of them and really enjoyed seeing all the young monks and learning more about their culture. Interesting fact: In Buddhism, you can become a monk for a month or a lifetime. Afterwards you can go back to your family and resume your life or you can continue as a monk.

On our last day in Chiang Mai, we pampered ourselves at a spa - I think we spent $40 USD for two hours of massages and body scrubs! Then we went to a really cool restaurant called The Service 1921. The whole place and staff were completely themed out like the 1920's secret service. So cool and great food!
