Review: My first Thai BKK-Chiang Rai-Chiang Mai-Phuket-Phi Phi-Krabi. Day 3rd.
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.
Took the boat for 600 baht and swept across the Mekong at first in the direction of Burma,
Lao island is a 20 baht entrance
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
the first Tom Yam
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.
The crab looks toward Burma
Then we went through the mountains of Maesalong. Along the way there are checkpoints with soldiers, still near the border.
Stopped near the tea plantations. A very beautiful species.
By the way, we got a Chinese village, where we bought tea and scented soap.
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).
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
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?
Better here to ask questions, hardly anyone individually in PM you will advise. ...
So it is true, but there is an official circular and the statement by the police in the media that the national Wu international they do not recognize. This year alone, all published in the Thai media. Therefore, to argue with the Thai police on the road I think it makes no sense, they have bosses and teams at the top. ...
A couple of important news:
From October 31, comes into force the requirement on compulsory medical insurance for tourists arriving in Thailand long term visa. While this applies to those who receive a visa type Non-Immigrant Visa “O-A” for more than a year. Visa-free entry for Russians and those who receive a visa on arrival while without travel insurance.
- The police of Thailand has set tough requirements for distributors of motorbikes on the test right. Now theoretically take a motorbike rental is possible only in the presence of the international in the open category A. As will be in practice – we'll see. ...

I believe that Tae is nothing remarkable about this and not go back so want. State in one or two at most times. So I never they are not particularly ill, and after a failed stay even more.
Always a lot of tourists very much. Where don't spit – at every step.
The beaches are crowded and you need to work hard to find a place where I will be able to retire. Fatty and spicy foods – heartburn was almost every day.
Hot. Tropical Paradise can only dream about – stuffy, very stuffy.
The only thing that I advise everyone in Thailand visit the tour. Here they interesting. I took 2 on the river Kwai and Mini Siam. Pattaya. ...
Easier to just go to AO Nang, and there near the shore can cross-train and then by boat. ...
9908 bus departs from the public transport center. From what particular place is not exactly prompt, but there you will find, after all, PTC is quite small, and there are people behind the counter will tell me. Keep in mind that the schedule here https://nashaplaneta.net/asia/thai/bangkok-stancii-avtobusnaya-stanciya-suvarnabhumi updated on 2018, now it may have changed a little. But there's still a minivan straight to Chang by ferry, you can see them - https://12go.asia/ru/van/suvarnabhumi-airport/koh-chang?z=5962&curr=RUB ...
