Ay yaj yai, what a city this is! It’s the thousands of motorbikes, the pressing heat, the smells of the street food, the vendors that want to sell you anything of everything, the taxi drivers that ignore the red sign. Constant concentration is needed while walking the streets of Ho Chi Minh City.
Pai, a small village, high up in the mountains of Northern Thailand. It was the moment we arrived, we immediately fell in love with this special place. It’s the nature, the people, the creative energy and the good vibes. A planned visit of 2 weeks, turned out in a stay of 6 weeks. Here’s a top 10 things to do when you stay in Pai.
It doesn’t take long to see that Chiang Mai is booming. Trendy lifestyle shops and great coffee is popping up everywhere. We got surprised by how many young hipsters brought ‘handcrafts’ to the next level. Traditional art combined with new techniques, made this city super interesting. We’re fully inspired to design a brand new collection.
After a 12 hour trip from Amsterdam, we arrived in Bangkok. First impression is quite overwhelming. This city is buzzing, hot, crowdy and fast. You don’t know where to look, there’s much going on. But the moment you decide to just go with the flow, you’ll experience the nice vibe this city has to offer.
