I walk you through my life as an expat in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I’m a week in, and it’s going so good!
Check out my photography on Instagram at @brendanvanson.
My life as expat in Chiang Mai is off to a good start. And, actually, I took a whole week off the vlog to get settled into a bit of a routine. So, on this episode, I wanted to walk you through a day in my life here in Thailand.
Expat life in Thailand is pretty good. The weather is great, the food is good, and overally the quality of life is so high. I feel like I’m living a better life here without nearly as much stress.
Our apartment in Chiang Mai is in a cool area close to Maya Shopping Mall, which has kind of turned into our defacto base here in the Thai city. It’s got a great co-working space, a gym, and it even has a street food market.
But, my expat life in Chiang Mai doesn’t revolve entirely around life at the mall. I’ve done some exploring too. And, on the vlog today we headed to a temple to shoot some photography. It was so much fun.
Finally, nothing ends a day in Thailand quite like some street food.
There are lots of great places to get street food in Chiang Mai, so we wanted to try something different. We had khao soi moo which is a noodle dish from Northern Thailand. It’s my favourite thing here, by far. I could eat it every day.
Chiang Mai is a popular place for expats. And, it’s not hard to see why. It’s just a phenomenal place to live. It’s affordable, it’s friendly, and it’s vibrant. I’m loving life here.
There are lots more Thailand vlogs coming up on the channel. I’m off to places like Koh Samui, Bangkok, and Chiang Rai. And, of course, there will be more content from here in Chiang Mai!
