I should say that I’m not a huge fan of cafe when it comes to lunch time. I’d rather find those tiny stalls in the alley, or go to a local restaurant which is packed up with hungry people during lunch time. But this place got to be an exception, you’ll find out why!
So it was a sunny mid day in Chiang Mai when Fred, Susan, Adam, and I were going to a certain local eatery for lunch. We later found that the place was horrible. There were so many flies, or bees, we didn’t know for sure. But the point is, it looked super dirty and we knew we got to move to another place right away. This Nat Wat thing, was Susan’s idea. (Thanks to you, Susan!!!).
I think it’s time for me to write something useful. If you read my blog before, you might already know that when I was living in Chiang Mai, I worked from one coffee shop to another, every single day. We tried out quite a lot of places, but ended up having some of our favourite place to work from which we revisited several times during our stay.
We found that not all coffee shops / cafes are suitable for working. Those with noisy customers and wrong height of table and chairs are definitely not in our list. We like the one with soothing ambiance, the one that has a perfect table and chair, and the one with reliable internet connection.
Do you believe in love at the first bite? I think you should, as it does exist.
We went here last December, just a couple of days before we left Chiang Mai. And we clearly understand what the fuss is all about.
Before we got to Chiang Mai, I did a little research about where to have nice desserts there (because, I just had to!). This place came up a couple of times and I read a lot of good reviews about it on TripAdvisor, Foursquare, Facebook, and even on some random site.
Just a quick update. It has been a marvellous weeks for us and I can’t believe *well, I REFUSE TO BELIEVE* that we’re going home real soon. *sad*
Chiang Mai is incredibly nice and very suitable for people who works remotely, or as they said, Digital Nomads. True, there are a lot of Digital Nomads out here as there are a lot of cafes serving good coffee with good fair price. You just have to find the one that suits you. You know, the one with the perfect ambience, the perfect height of table, the perfect music, the perfect everything. It’s important. And it’s sooo easy to find one. We ended up having some of our favourites!
When Susan told me that we were going to a cat cafe on Saturday, I was like : “REALLY? YAY!”
You know, this made my second time visiting a cat cafe after my first one in Singapore. And I found this much much more fun than before. The cats here are somehow more active and playful. They’re not acting sleepy or whatsoever. And they are very sensitive to sound too, especially the sound of toys. That makes playing with cats so much fun.
