Women's Prison Massage - it almost feels weird typing these words. But apparently it's a thing in Chiang Mai where you could enjoy a Thai traditional massage performed by female inmates who opted to participate in the prison's job-training and rehab program. The objective of this program is to help the inmates develop relevant skills to secure a job when they're released back into society.
Among the many the sightseeing tours you can do in Chiang Mai, a trip to Mae Kampong in Mae On district is recommended for those who are looking to escape to a less-touristy place. If you have a private car to ferry you around, you owe it to yourself to drop by Tharnthong Lodges, a nature resort with a great Thai restaurant that's also blessed with a spectacular view of greenery.
If you happen to be in Chiang Mai and looking for a place to enjoy a no frills dinner, I will recommend Sukontha buffet restaurant. Sukontha is supposedly the largest restaurant in Chiang Mai and one of the best places to experience Mookata, a Thai barbecue steamboat. The price is only 209 baht (~RM25) per pax.
Salasabaii is a newly opened Thai food stall in Taman Taynton View's 118 KK Food Court. The main chefs themselves are Thai and Mookata, Jim Jum, BBQ and salt baked tilapia are only some of their signature items. Their BBQ Salt Baked Fish is seriously good and you should drop by just for this ridiculously delicious dish alone.
Looking at the restaurant's elaborate decor and well-designed menu, you could tell that the management of Baan Kun Ya has put in a lot of heart and effort to bring customers a new dining experience. No matter where you look, something grabs the eye in this warm and cozy restaurant. When dining at Baan Kun Ya, it's important to save some space for desserts because they offer some of the more uncommon ones that are very worthwhile.
Our overall experience at Rosdet Tomyam was good and we can't help but feel impressed by the level of service we got. The waitress who attended to us was polite and all-smiles while our food arrived all at once within minutes after ordering. Forget about the hip and trendy, this is a gem in the heart of KL to visit for a cheap and satisfying meal.
