If you come to visit Thailand, you have to stop by Chiang Mai. It’s a cute city with a lot to offer. Cool trendy bars, restaurants and coffee places. Even though Thailand isn’t exactly famous for their coffee, I can say the dark battery acid did me good. While preparing my trips I always make a Pinboard on Pinterest with places to go in every city & town. So every morning – afternoon and evening I choose a new place to eat – drink or chill out.
While walking through Chiang Mai you can find the cutest mini coffee places, but one just stuck to me. Graph is a small industrial looking coffee cafe with great coffee, hot and iced. With it’s intimate atmosphere and vintage interior you can chill here for hours. Hearing the sound of the fresh beans going into the coffee machine and smell the homemade baked goods.
