Chiang Mai’s Quirky Street Art…
Here we are for the 175th week of Travel Photo Thursday! I want to say thank you to everyone who has contributed to keeping this weekly virtual tour going. What I really love is the amount of visiting, commenting, and sharing that goes on. Very few contributors simply link and run. I know that we’ve all made some wonderful virtual friendships through this weekly meet-up, and for some, those friendships have extended into the world beyond the blogosphere. I’m looking forward to week 200, but in the interim, we all have some linking, commenting, and sharing to do! This week I’m going to share with you some of the quirky and fun street art I’ve encountered in my walks around Chiang Mai. Most of it seems to be erected by various businesses.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog.
Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.
Please post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.
The Twitter hashtag for Travel Photo Thursday is #TPThursday.

Not sure why Mr. Piggy is so happy. He’s advertising for a shop that sells his cousins in bulk!
Am I going to severed by a retired sumo wrestler in a thong? ewwwwwwwww….
Wawee Coffee is a franchise with numerous locations throughout Chiang Mai. Every location of I have passed has one of these mascots out front. I think it looks like a kid having a temper tantrum!
Not quite on the street, but I love these elephant statues on the lawn of a restaurant that fronts on the Ping River…
Bangkok Airways have dyed their panda! 🙂 It’s all in the name of corporate branding, I guess!
Not sure what this ‘guy’s” purpose is. Ran into him in a lot across from Chiang Mai’s new Maya Mall. He seems to be saying “at your service”.
Loved this doll sitting out a shop that sells her “sisters” in many different sizes.
On the door of Glang-Viang Gallery in the old city…
Ronald is always culturally correct in Thailand!
Not technically street art, but I love them all!
Found this fella in a temple at the base of a stupa. He looks to be a cross between a water buffalo and a pig!
Another temple find…I’ve never seen so many rooster statues in one place!
Finally, what city worth mentioning wouldn’t be protected by THE MAN!?
