Review: My first Thai BKK-Chiang Rai-Chiang Mai-Phuket-Phi Phi-Krabi. Day 3rd.

"The beginning of the review here...

3rd day.

At 8 am drove to the NOC and we headed to the Golden triangle. Along the way we watched a few old ruined temples. The hall of opium - the entrance is 50 baht (the money of Thailand exchange rate). A small private Museum, can be seen as grown, packaged, sold opium and what happens to those who eat it.

Drank Lao beer, came back. The driver got to us very quickly, so on the bow of the boat much sausage, when the waves jump. Continue to Mae Sai –the Northern gate of Thailand. In Burma did not go as it was so hot. We sat in a restaurant overlooking the bridge

Knock, squeezing his Honda through the market, took us to the hill (thank you for that huge, otherwise we would have died in this terrible heat rising walk), where beautiful views of the border town.

Then we went through the mountains of Maesalong. Along the way there are checkpoints with soldiers, still near the border.

In the evening, tired but happy, came to Thaton. Settled in the hotel Old Tree's House - 1200 baht per night. The owner, a Frenchman Paulo. He is 75 I guess. The wife is Thai. The hotel inhabited by a few French families with children. As I understand you live there for a long time and Paulo carries them on various excursions. Had dinner at the hosts for 240 baht per person (the wife of Paulo cooks).

4-th day.

In the morning I considered the hotel. Lovely bungalows in a tropical garden, a pool, a bamboo gazebo in which you need to climb the stairs and beautiful views of mountains and Wat Thaton.




Fun in our Bungalow two sinks.


Sorry, we didn't have time to stay another day and we drove off. Looked Wat Thaton, a giant Buddha



As live




and went to the side of Chiang Dao. Very beautiful road through the mountains.

Finally reached the caves of Chiang Dao, entrance 20 baht. In the cave of Thais to make a film, so we are periodically asked to wait. The film as I understand it - a drama about the middle ages.


With him I had a flashlight, so was able to explore different nooks and crannies of the cave. When I came out, it was already 4 hours and the planned elephant camp we hadn't time. As already repeatedly wrote, the road to Pai, solid turns.

The evening came to Pai. This city of hippies and rastamanov many times described on the forum. Even the Thais here with long hair and tattoos. Checked in paid at the LiLu Hotel – 800 baht. The hotel is located in the heart of town.



Walked around the night market, just two streets


Surprised on duty on the streets by the police. The next day, the NOC has explained to us that the police dragged a drunk and stoned tourists on hotels. And why in Moscow such service is not?

Now the prices in Thailand when translated into roubles above, than in Russia. Some products, such as eggs or pork, generally almost twice as expensive. Well, it certainly is when compared with the province. So keep in mind, this is not a cheap country, as it was until 2014. ...

I have a strong opinion that trips to a guide which tells about the sights, only needed for historical sites. And considering that there are places on Samui not, then excursions are not necessary, if you are able to reach on their own. If you drive a motorbike, take it in rent and go, all you will see. ...
