Feline Adrenaline

Jodi and I visited the Tiger Kingdom right before leaving Chiang Mai. For $10 we got to chill with 3 tigers and get up close and personal with them. The tigers have a nice sanctuary to live in and then get into cages when people pay to meet them. Jodi and I were a bit hesitant about the park initially. I was concerned with how they would treat the animals. From what we saw the trainers really enjoyed their job and were playful with them. They train them using only sticks, don’t believe in declawing and try to keep the environment as stress-free as possible. Jodi, oh so brave, boasted that it would be nothing. Check out the video 🙂

Sunday Market

The Sunday Market happens weekly in Chiang Mai. From around 4 PM till midnight, vendors open shop in the streets of the city. There is a lot of art sold, specifically of the Northern Thai region as well as some great street food. Even the temples open their grounds for vendors to set up food shops. It is a great place to see the culture, hang out and enjoy some haggling.
