Chiang Mai Day #4 Kennett’s Tour
Chiang Mai Day #4 Kennett’s Tour, or water day as it became affectionately known. Our mate Mr Kim came and picked us up. Let’s do something a little different today. Off we go to hot springs, and water parks. The hot springs are a fair jaunt out of town, but in some beautiful countryside of Thailand. This place is at Sankampaeng Hot Springs. Yep it is volcanic, yep it is smelly because of the sulphur, it’s very hot too. But a VERY cool place.
It costs about 110 Baht to get in a use the facilities – kids pool (full of dead frogs ha ha – that’ll team them to assume the water is fine and jump in), adults pool, leg dipping area, hot showers and even a place to buy raw eggs, pop them in little baskets and dip them in the pool to be hard boiled in 15 minutes. Delicious with a little savoury sauce. Let’s get in to Chiang Mai Day #4 Kennett’s Tour.
Still the kids had fun.
Seriously how cool is this place, this is the restaurant in the Anantara Hotel, a 5* renovation in Chiang Mai, keeping the old Governor’s house, and converting it as you’ll see behind Mary and the kids. Without a shadow of a doubt some of the best food I have ever eaten, and when you think we had 6 main courses, 2 desserts, 2 beers, 2 cocktails, free nibbles, free palate cleanser, so of the very best staff ever, and amazing seat et. to be charged a little over $200 was mind-blowing.
It’s all themed on the secret services. SO much so that they have a special list of cocktails, and we had Golden Gun, and Gold Finger – yep actual gold flakes within the drink. Secret rooms that you’ll see soon. Fantastic display cabinets full if very cool stuff, made us feel like we were in the film, The Kingsman. What a genius place this restaurant is.
This truly bucket-list, or death-row. You simply have to come here and try the food. You have to!
