6 Days 5 Nights Relax at Chiang Mai (Day 2) | 废人废生活的清迈6天5夜行 (第二天） Day 2
We got a warm welcome by birds outside our room in our second day in Chiang Mai. It was a cooling and wonderful day. We enjoyed our American style breakfast after woke up in later morning. The breakfast came with fried egg, bacon, big sausage and vegetable. It was very delicious. Apart from that, they have coffee and tea for you to choose. Yogurt, orange juice, fruit, oat, milk are buffet style. It was such a wonderful experience to enjoy our breakfast in this beautiful place.
After finish breakfast, we walked back to hotel room. Today, we rent a motorbike from hotel again as it is really convenient to have your own bike. You can travel to any places that you like at your own convenient time. Although Camus does not have a motor license, but he still can fetch me to go here and there, it was really romantic which we can't experience in our own country, an unforgettable experience we had there!
At first we were worried and thinking not to rent a bike as we afraid there will be a road block, carry helmet everywhere while you travel is not a convenient way also. But the hotel owner told us normally won't have road block, and if have just told police we forgot to bring license. We also can't believe the helmet can just hang on motor bike, 99.99% you won't lost your helmet! After get the assurance from hotel owner, we rent their bike and continue our journey.
Our first stop on this day was Royal Flora Ratchaphruek. When we arrived there, we saw many local people just leave their helmet on top of their bike without any lock. From there you can see how safe Chiang Mai is. Compare with our country, don't say you leave it on bike, even if you hang it on the hook under your seat, which consider lock it, you will end up getting back your helmet "ring" without the helmet and be prepared to spend another few ten or hundred ringgit to get your new helmet.
我们骑着电单车出发到Royal Flora Ratchaphruek，凉风习习，实在令人兴奋。抵达后，停放好电单车，观察周围的电单车，当地人还真的就把钢盔摆放在车上而已，真是不能不佩服当地的治安。要是在我国，别说摆放，就算你锁上了，可恶的小偷还是把钢盔给剪断。

We bought an entrance ticket which cost 100 Baht each. Inside the park, we get a 20 Baht track ticket to ride on track and round the park. The track will stop you at few stations, you can go to every station to have short walking trip. There are many types of flowers and plantation in the park. Among all, attracted me to most was the big winter melon.
For lunch, we arrived at another local market (Hang Dong market) to have their local food. That market was not a tourist place, hence all menus are written in Thai language. Good thing was they have picture, hence we simply pointed at the picture to order our lunch. From that bowl of noodle, it looked plain and simple, but it was very spicy. After ate, I immediately ran for toilet *diarrhea*. But, I like the noodle so much and it was one of the food that I miss so much, I will return for it again in future if I have the chance.
走完花园，肚子也都饿了，我们骑着电单车到处找吃。最后，我们到达另一个巴刹 (Hang Dong巴刹)，享用当地的汤面。食谱都是泰文，就只能看着照片随意点来吃。这碗汤面实在是辣，但非常好吃，也许是太辣了，吃完不久就拉肚子，但，它却是我一直还在怀念的味道。这感觉淡淡又辣辣的，普普通通的一碗面，竟然赢取了我的心啊。
After lunch, we returned to Baan Tawai, the place we went on our first day in Chiang Mai. We bought 2 wall lights at 300 Baht, cheap.
吃完后，我们再回到昨天去过的Baan Tawai, 购买壁灯。两盏灯才用了300Baht，觉得很便宜呢。

Then, we returned to night market near our hotel to get our dinner again.
After meal, we had our Thai massage in our room, I expected a relaxing massage, which I experienced at Bali before, but it was a torturing one. I shout from beginning until the end, it was a "pain"ful experience. But one hour massage only cost us 300 Baht.
After that, we planed our trip for next day.
