A cool park where you could begin your Chicago adventure. This park has an ice skating rink you can use in the winter where people gather around to see the skaters. The mirror bean is here and a restaurant over here and across the street. It is on Michigan ave and located very close to the magnificent mile and close by grant park.

Great bus station for access to busses all over the country. When you first enter the station, the ticket counters are on the right Green Bus is on the left. I usually go the right, while most Thais go tot he left. The lady behind the counter, cant remember the name of the bus company, but she will be really thirsty to get your attention to get on her bus to Bangkok. I rode on that bus before and it was ok. I suggest getting on the VIP bus for 700+ baht if you do not want to freeze to death on the older third class bus only for 400 something baht. The Sombat Tours bus was pretty cool because they have an 11-hour all-night bus to Bangkok that leaves around 10:00pm. The station has an ATM, refreshments, and friendly people willing to help you. Just wait at the designated number for your bus pull up and off you go!

This is the main bridge you will cross coming from the train station or bus station in the east suburb when arriving to Chiang Mai. Very beautiful bridge above a lake, great place for taking photos and videos. Also, there is a market next to the bridge on the west side. Very cool place for breathing in the energy of Chiang Mai.

To be honest, the Victoria Monument was just average. It is an important part of Thai history, but when you go over there there is nothing but cars and buses going around in the traffic circle, and tuk tuk and motorcycle taxis hounding you. What is amazing about the monument are the street food vendors on the side streets close by. But the monument itself is great is you just want to ride past for a glimpse of Bangkok history.

Whenever I stay at the Varada Place down the street I always go to this mall. On the first floor they have food stands, restaurants, kFC, Samsung phone store, Acer, everything. On the third floor they have a bank, clothing store, and pharmacy store. They even have a grocery store western union on the ground floor and one at Bangkok bank. Also, there are multiple ATMs on the outside when you first walk up to the mall's front entrance and they are safe to use. If you're black in thailand everything is ok because you can comfortably walk around the mall without anybody looking at you crazy. Sometimes in the evenings they serve street food in the front and oftentimes have ceremonies. There is also a 7-11 across the street. They have tuks tuks and those red baht buses in the mall parking lot waiting 24/7 willing to pick up anyone who need a ride somewhere. Cool place to start your Chiang Mai adventure.
