There have been seemingly endless rain, drizzle and hard showers for the last few days in Chiang Mai. Yet I am still incredibly grateful to be here and especially in our new neighborhood of Jed Yod.
Many neighborhoods here are designated by the temple in the area. We are so fortunate to be next door to Wat (Temple) Jed Yod. Right now the temple bells are ringing and soon the monks will be chanting. Its a lovely and peaceful sound.
Our neighborhood has a lively small vendor community. We are able to purchase pretty much everything we need within walking distance.
The entrance to Jed Yod is just opposite our building.
I’m able to just step outside our door and purchase flowers, candle and incense.
There is a wide variety of food, sold in open air stalls and small restaurants. Srifass is my favorite!
We are also walking distance from Maya Mall, one of the nicest in Chiang Mai. Here we can see the latest movies, western style grocery shop as well as eat a wide variety of international cuisine.
So rainy season or not I’m so glad Jed Yod, Chiang Mai is our new home.
