It’s temples galore in Chaing Mai. At the entrance to the temples there are often statues of great serpents, or naga. This one was particularly beautiful.
Most of today was spend stressing out about a non-existent flight.
There are, however, some great things about Hong Kong airport. This mini-bean sculpture is one of them; the other is a FANTASTIC service called City Check-in, whereby you can check-in to your flight in the city centre and your luggage is transported to the aiport. You can do this first thing in the morning and have a productive day (at work / sightseeing / whatever you want) and just turn up at the airport in time to get through immigration and security. Other airports of the world, take note.
