Ladyboy Show in Chiang Mai, Thailand

For those who don’t know, a ladyboy show is the Thai equivalent of a drag show where men dress up in “drag” (as women) while lip syncing and dancing. Ladyboy shows are a popular and well-known part of Thai culture. While I was in Thailand, I wasn’t going to miss my chance to check one of these numbers out! 

Since I was in Chiang Mai at the time, people from my program and I went to Ram Bar which is an easy songtaew ride away from Old Town. The show is free if you buy a drink (the cheapest drink is 170 Baht = 5 Dollars) which is pretty reasonable. 

So here are some of my thoughts!

Vegan Food in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai’s Old Town has vegan food options for days! Now, of course, there are areas outside of Old Town where vegan options aren’t rubbing elbows on every block, but even then I didn’t struggle too much to find something good to eat.

My vacation to Chiang Mai quickly become a vegan food vacation as I chowed down on way too much yummy vegan food! So here is a list of all the food I ate! 😂 (My dignity= zero!)

Note: While I am emphasizing that these dishes are vegan for my vegans out there, these dishes are equally delicious for you  non-vegans. If you like good food, then this is for you!

Note note: Going to a self-proclaimed vegan restaurant might cost you a little bit more money by Thai standards, but for us foreigners a fabulous meal will only cost you around 6-7 Dollars and that’s if you get a drink or dessert with your meal or go for the more expensive options on the meal!

WARNING: BELOW YOU WILL FIND PICTURES OF FOOD THAT WILL MAKE YOUR MOUTH WATER! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!
