Review: My first Thai BKK-Chiang Rai-Chiang Mai-Phuket-Phi Phi-Krabi. Day 5th.

"Start here...

5-th day.

As always, I left early and soon was already at Thum Lod cave. For 300 baht (currency of Thailand, the exchange rate) and took a bamboo raft with a boatman, over 150 kid with Aladdin's lamp and bought smelly fish food. Cave liked the most.

A river in the cave is teeming with catfish, which we were fed. In the middle of the cave came out on the shore, he looked around and then swam. In the end I along a kid climbed a steep, filled with shit bats the stairs to the top. To my disappointment upstairs, except for some remnants of the ancient wooden sarcophagi, nothing happened. The first desire, after I went back, had to clean out mouse droppings hands and Slippers.

An hour four came to Mae Hong son. Checked in at Ngamta Hotel - 1000 baht. Had rooms for 800, but with two beds and a smaller one. The window of our room overlooked the lake. The hotel is very conveniently located at the turnoff to the lake. From it starts the street with the night market, opposite the 7/11 store.


This is the view from the window



Threw things and went to the mountain near the city to see Wat Doi Kong Moo.

One monk is working, the rest watching


Then to Wat Jong Klang Wat is very beautiful on the lake.


Inside there is a small Museum.



He Mae Hong son very much. Cozy, quiet town. Many restaurants, tourists a bit, maybe not the season.

6-th day.

In the morning ran to the lake took off Wat.


On the plan we had donnachie. As we have explained NOK, near Mae Hong Dream there are 3 villages. Before the 1st and can be reached by car, while the 2nd is taken on a bamboo raft on the river. We chose the third. It is located almost on the border with Burma and it is necessary to go on the boat dlinnohvostaja. Along the way we met bathing in a puddle of elephant.




Took the boat – 900 baht. Proposed surcharge and make it to the border, where some Burmese market, but we did not. Along the way we stopped near the ticket office and bought a 250 baht entrance fees to the village, as explained by the NOC all the money from ticket sales go to the villagers. Then swam for half an hour, bypassing the rapids on the river is heavily shoaled.


Landed in the village. Of the tourists we were there alone. Plenty napadavshie looked at the school, where the teachers come from the city. In kindergarten there was a dinner, and the door was closed, only heard the sound of spoons on plates. The villagers are happy to pose in front of the camera, nothing vparivayut. After last year's visit Sapa in Vietnam is very pleased.






As we walked through the village, our boatmen were playing cards with the local women.

We were very excited when we bought them beer. On the boat back to our car. The route was scenic, so we did not regret that chose this village.


Further moved in the direction of DOI Inthanon. In the evening drove to Mae Chaem. The town is unremarkable, therefore, settled beyond the city in Navasoung Resort -1200 baht. The hotel keeps old Finn with his strict Thai wife. He was very glad of our arrival, finally had someone to drink. It turned out, his father was Russian, after the war emigrated to Finland. He also visited Russia. Here, in May Cheme for many years the Russian had seen only twice and very for this reason lamented. The hotel itself is not very new bungalows are scattered across a pretty decent site. There is a pool and gorgeous mountain views.





My wife and Finn need to bargain, she us 300 baht took off.

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. ...
