I pretty much stick to four main food groups here in Thailand: Iced Coffee, Fruit, Noodles, and Food On A Stick. Every day, I eat something from each group. I’ve made it my personal mission to find the best in each of these groups, and today I’m going to show you the best iced coffee in Chiang Mai.

And there it is…the perfect Thai Iced Coffee!
