We have been in Thailand for a month today.

Today we leave from The Imperial Mae Hong Song Resort in Mae Hong Son to Pai.
At a quarter past ten, after breakfast, we drive away.

On the way we stop at a fishing cave, Thampla-Phasua Waterfall National Park. It is a beautiful, small park, but it is not spectacular.
The story goes that many fish swim into the cave, and few swim out again. The cave is under water, you cannot enter it, and it is not known what is inside.

The road to Pai becomes spectacular, many curves, also many sharp curves, and many steep slopes. When we arrive in Pai we have been on the road for over three hours and the counter is at 1620 km.
We drive through the town to find a hotel. The first thing we are going to look at is very empty, there is really no one to be seen. We drive the other way and see the Diamond De Pai City Hotel. We look at the rooms and take a room for one night, tomorrow we'll see further.

We walk through Pai, it is a very small town, and we look around at a nice market.
Then we walk down the street called Walking Street; this is no longer Thailand, this can be anywhere, Spain, Greece, Turkey. And there are few Thai people to be seen. Tom has seen enough in Pai.

We eat in a quiet Thai restaurant, reasonable food, but there are many flies. And we have a drink in the hotel restaurant, where it is quite busy with mainly Thai guests. We sleep well in the Diamond de Pai City Hotel.

We tell what we have done and experienced during a trip and we also tell what we think about it; no more and no less.

This is not a travel guide, nor is it advice to visit a place or not. There are other sites for that.
Our opinion about places where we have eaten, drunk or slept is not intended as a (positive or negative) assessment, there are other sites for that.
It is our view of the situation at a certain moment and that view is influenced by our mood, the weather and many other factors.
