The Four Seasons Chiang Mai is one of their premier hotels, about 45 minutes outside the city with rice paddies and gorgeous mountain scenery all around. The Cooking School restaurant offered a scrumptious Christmas lunch buffet. The setting is an indoor-outdoor space with a terrace in the trees, where we sat. It was pleasant weather, not too hot, and lots of big families with all ages were surrounding us celebrating the day and engaging passersby in conversation. In particular, a couple from Altoona, PA had great stories to tell. As usual we were amazed at how small a world it really is. We loved it.
