New Year in Chiang Mai - Celebrating in an Interpol Shipping Container

We have learned that a major part of traveling is just to roll with the impromptu adventures.  While we were in Chiang Mai during New Year's Eve, we decided to go for a walk and see if we could find a place to celebrate.  We walked past many drunken venues that just did not have the right feel that we were looking for, and eventually settled on a multi-story tree-house that was made out of an old shipping container.  



Like I said, a tree-house made out of a shipping container.  It seemed to be the local biker bar (and by that I mean, bicycles, as there were quite a few pictures of people biking, and other memorabilia), and the bar seemed closed.  Of course this did not stop us, we ordered some food and watched as the employees had a BBQ party below.  

We also invited ourselves to their party and after some negotiation, at some of the biggest prawns I have ever seen.  

Also, the shipping container may or may not have belonged to InterPol.  While I am not sure, it sure does add to the story.




After hanging out in the shipping container for a few hours, we found ourselves at a great "buy mixed seafood by the kilo" restaurant, and decided to binge out for about $8.  Not a bad decision at all.
