Who Goes Clubbing on a Sunday Night??

Oh, the Thais do, including every other night of the week.

I heard there was a good nightlife scene before coming to Thailand – definitely a plus for a 24 yr. old – but geez, I feel like I’m in Vegas half the time!

Few facts about me:

  • I just moved to Chiang Mai from New York, the City that Never Sleeps.
  • I’m an Asian born and raised in the East Bay.
  • I’m in my 20’s.
  • I run.

Conclusion: I should be able to keep up with the party scene here, no problem.

Reality: No way in hell can I stay out until 5am (btw, drinking at the bar starts at 9 or 10pm), go home, watch a movie, sleep, then do it all over again the next night, even if it is the weekend.  I also refuse to drink until 3am on a Tuesday night then get up for work at 7:30am.  Thought I could do it, but realized I am old.

An American Expat in Chiang Mai, Thailand ​ Not willing to settle down just yet - I'm only in my mid-twenties after all - I took a leap across the big big pond and fell onto Thai soil. Well, it was a little less spontaneous than that... ​ After a grueling application process, Princeton in Asia bestowed upon me a one-year fellowship with The Life Skills Development Foundation in Chiang Mai. A renowned child rights non-profit foundation in Northern Thailand, TLSDF is giving me the opportunity to research critical social issues, travel across field sites in the nation's upper regions, converse with the international human rights community and of course, learn Thai! ​ This is my life - the beauty, struggle, culture shock and adventure - in the charming city of Chiang Mai.
