Title: Cultural Heritage of Lanna Kingdom– Chiang Mai
Life in Chiang Mai is very special. People here do many different activities such as umbrella making and painting, offering food to the monks, planting rice, working with elephants, and many more lovely things to do. Many shining gold temples are found in the old city, as well as in surrounding villages, which visitors can enjoy visiting. Scenery over the mountains and paddy fields are absolutely beautiful. Local food is great. People are very nice, warm and friendly. And this is why Chiang Mai is a wonderful place to live

Title: Chiang Mai
This painting shows Chiang Mai. I drew a temple, mountains, flowers, an elephant, a buffalo, two hill tribes, and a Thai girl smiling. A temple because there are many beautiful temples in Chiang Mai. Mountains because Chiang
Mai is lucky to have such beautiful mountains. Flowers, they are so beautiful and with Royal Flora that you
want to have the same at home. An elephant for all the beautiful elephant parks and shows in Chiang Mai.
A buffalo for all the hard work that they do, and because we see them a lot. Two hill tribes because
it’s Chiang Mai and that there are a lot of hill tribes. A Thai girl smiling because Chiang Mai is in
Thailand and it’s the Land of Smiles. That is why I think Chiang Mai is such a great place to live!

Title: Mountains with Waterfalls in Chiang Mai
I draw this picture because I like to go mountains with waterfalls. I think Doi Suthep is in a Chiang Mai. And I think Doi Suthep have a waterfall too. There is a sun look like a natural.

Title: Sights, Sounds & Smells
Markets are everywhere in Chiang Mai and full of everything you could imagine – clothes and hair accessories, fried insects, and pad thai, strawberries with sugar and roasted corn with butter. The colors – of people’s clothing, of the goods for sale and the fruits and vegetables – are vibrant. Chatter fills the air.
People are cheerful. I always enjoy going to the market.
