Home - Journeys - Holiday Thailand 2017 - Tuesday, November 28, 2017

We did not order breakfast in the Diamond De Pai City Hotel in Pai, that's why we walk to the market and eat tasty tjolk (which is a kind of rice soup), and drink standard Thai coffee, which is instant coffee.

At half past ten we leave for Lamphun, again we drive on a very winding road with steep slopes. In front of us there is someone who does not hurry and swings a lot, very annoying.
We stop at a view point and we lost the predecessor.
As we drive on, we make good progress, but after a good half hour we see the annoying car again. It now drives a bit faster. In a village it turns on its right turn signal and crosses the road, just in front of an oncoming truck. Hearing the honking, the driver of the truck was not happy, and neither were we, because we drove very close to that truck. Fortunately it went well.
We are happy to get rid of the predecessor.

We eat bami soup just before Chiang Mai, it is now a quarter past one, and drive on to Lamphun. We are looking for a hotel, Google indicated that there are not many hotels in the center, only two.
We find the first hotel but Pia thinks it is too far from the center, we cannot find the second hotel.
That is why we drive to Lampang, and at half past four we take a room in the Pin Hotel.
Tom has had enough of winding roads through the mountains for a while.
And we are both tired of looking for hotels, unloading and unpacking luggage, packing and loading again.

The counter is at 1845 km.

We are going to eat again at The Riverside, the food was tasty.

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.
