Overview

This is a comical essay in the format of a picture featuring lovely stories from 89 days of living in Chiang Mai

Book Intro

The designer couple, Yulri and Takku, are in their 7th year of marriage and have been garnering sensational reactions from their Instagram toon series, Nuletoon. ​One day, they set out to live for three months in Chiang Mai.

Rather than their romantic expectations, the first thing that welcomed them in Thailand was the burning temperature and the cutthroat airport taxi drivers. There were many obstacles Yulri and Takku had to overcome, so they looked for a place that matched their budget, agonized over food that did not fit their tastes, learned to get used to the days without work, and found a way to live a completely new life for 89 days.
However, this "short" stay of three months in Chiang Mai allowed Yulri and Takku to obtain their "first" house, become attracted to Thai food, and expand their careers as "digital nomads." Through experiences like these, they were able to achieve a work-life balance that they couldn't in Korea. Most of all, the leisurely, comforting days and warmth of people greeting each other with smiles allowed them to grasp a lifestyle they had been looking for. Yulri and Takku describe their 89 lovely days in Chiang Mai in the combination of comic and essay.
Rather than a short visit that only lasts a few days, this was a period of "living" in a place, filling up a part of life through a leisurely stay. Just as they did, Yulri and Takku recommend that people who visit Chiang Mai "walk slowly" so they will be able to better understand the smiles and warmth that the people of city showed to them. 
This book features lovely drawings, honest writing and photos of the experiences the two had in Chiang Mai. The witty map attached to the book was drawn by the authors, and there are tips and episodes that will certainly help people who visit Chiang Mai for the first time. Most of all, the descriptions of getting a place to live, shopping and good restaurants are full of the insight that comes from the author's unique perspectives.

Through Yulri and Takku's story of three months spent living in Chiang Mai, readers will be able to feel both a warmth and the desire to leave to a place.
