It was very easy to get to Doi Suthep. We had noticed the red taxis (songthaews) passing by on our street. So we just stood on the sidewalk, and one soon came by, asked us where we wanted to go, gave us a quote of 100 baht each. On the way up, we were stuck in a traffic jam. Found out later there was a landslide that needed to be cleared as it had rained heavily the night before.
Then we found a restaurant close to our place. It was one that was recommended by our AirBnB host. According to my photo location mark, it was called Kuakai Nimman. I had heard that there was a special Northern Thailand dish that we needed to try, khao soi, so this was our first taste of it. And we were hooked! We also loved their presentation of the drinks in the tin cups. Right next door, there was an ice cream place. iberry.
