CHIANGMAI TRAVEL : HIGHEST SPOT IN THAILAND

If you have been reading my blog for quite sometimes , more or less you know that I love to do the nature trail walking tour when I go for travel. I did the same when I was in Chiangmai early this year. A walk through the nature trail on top of the highest mountain in Thailand, Doi Inthanon really something than I will never forget forever. Since this is the highest mountain in Thailand with 2,565m, the coolest during Winter time can drop at 0 Degrees. It was winter and drop at 2 Degrees when I visited this place. Super cold!  Thank God! I remember to pack some shawls with me to cover up my neck and keep me warm through out the nature trail. On top of Doi Inthanon summit there is also Royal Thai Air Force weather radar station and the Thai National Observatory. If you see the bottom left photo where many coins being thrown...it actually a official stamp on the highest peak of Thailand. The name Doi Inthanon was given in honour of the Thai King Inthan

CHIANGMAI TRAVEL : LONG NECK TRIBE VILLAGE

Have you ever read or heard about Long Neck people? Long neck come from Kayan people of Myanmar. They comes from Shan State of Myanmar and fled to Thailand. Government of Thailand have been very generous to allow them to live in the Thailand land. There are few settlement of Long Neck tribe or Kayan in Thailand. Most of them live in the compounded settlement with helps of NGO and other volunteer. Most of them grow their own vegetables and find their own food. They are not allowed to live the compounded area, I visited two Long Neck villages. One is pretty much commercialized which is on the way back from Chiangrai trip. I was greeted with this horny carving. They have long neck and long dick too? kekekeke This place is pretty much commercialized. Everywhere is all about selling and most long neck woman was dress up and make up to greet the tourist. I don't really like this kind of pretentious kind of set up though! Even some Long Neck tribe kids will be beggi

CHIANGMAI TRAVEL : THAILAND , LAOS , MYANMAR IN ONE DAY

3 countries in one day? Possible? Impossible? Which country? Thailand , Myanmar and Laos - Golden Triangle ! I even cross over to Laos by boat. DAEBAK! According to history this Golden Triangle has been well known for the opium growing and nowadays this place are famous as largest tourist trap in northern Thailand. To reach this place you need to take mini van for around 3 1/2 hours drive from Chiangmai City to Mae Sai. The landscape is hilly and divided by Ruak River that flows into Mekong River. These rivers then form a natural boundary like a Triangle shape between 3 countries LAOS - to the east of Mekong, MYANMAR - to the north of the Ruak and THAILAND - to the west of  Mae Khong. I took a boad ride across to a small island Don Sao, which in Laos. You don't need visa to go to this Island but you still need to bring passport. From Thai riverside sits a huge Golden Buddha Statue. Thats the view from the boat over look the Thai riverside. Here w

CHIANGMAI TRAVEL : UNCONVENTIONAL BUDDHIST TEMPLE IN CHIANG RAI

I visited many temples from Buddhist to Hindus and this one is uniquely beautiful out of all. The most unconventional Buddhist temple I ever been to.  Wat Rong Khun or more well known as White Temple is in Chiang Rai, Thailand. This is not a ruined or even historical place. This place built in year 1997 by noted Thai painter who turned architect and still in progress. To me the building it self from far look so majestic and enchanted. The main building is painted white as its symbolize Buddha's purity. Most astonished that this place is covered in mosaics of mirrors which give amazing sparkling effect under the sun. I bet it look awesome beautiful at night too but it may be scary at night. You know what I mean if you read further. The hanging head. This is what I mean...gosh! this White Temple is full of bizarre and horror creatures face. Just imagine walking at night and stumble onto that head....Ommaaaaa!!!! To reach the temple you have to walk over a b

CHIANGMAI TRAVEL : CHIANGMAI SUNDAY NIGHT MARKET

Continuation to my previous post about Night Market at Pai which situated around 3 1/2 hours drive from Chiangmai City, this is about the famous or Sunday Walking Night Market at Chiangmai city itself. The Sunday Walking Night Market runs through the centre of the Old City along Rachadamnoen Road which start from The Phae Gate to the Police Station. Seriously happening here. It start at 5pm to 10pm. My advice to start early like around 6 - 7pm. The crowds is seriously getting crazier around 8pm onwards. You barely move with all those curious tourist. You will be sandwiched in the sea of people. Again, I don't even bother about any knick knacks or whatsoever. My main focus is just food and food and food again. WTH! Too many inexpensive delicious nibbles to main meals to choose.  I tried new street food which is pretty much out of curiosity of the taste. WTH! Nothing to lose since its really inexpensive and just my belly getting bigger. DAMN!!! I started with
