... the Hill Tribe Museum in Chiang Rai. There are many small bamboo homes scattered around the dirt roads and pigs and roosters running around free everywhere. Unlike the "human zoo" villages we read about being in Chiang Rai, we were the ones being stared at here. Many of the children would say "sabaidii" (hello) to us and when we responded they would run away giggling. Zouk told us a bit about the village and the Akha people who live there. He explained that in Laos, people ...

The list really does go on and on. We've had countless memories and experiences to this point, yet when we recount the highlights of our journey, the majority of them have to do with the kindness of others.

For that, we are eternally grateful.

If you're reading this and are someone who has enhanced our journey in some way to this point, THANK YOU. We appreciate you more than you know.

Trekking and Akha Homestay

... though they had someone stay most nights. When we left the village a local guy came along as a guide for a while. He passed through the gates but we had to walk around them. These gates are also sacred and cannot be touched, they are there to keep evil spirits of the jungle out of the village. The village is next to a rubber plantation which is owned by a Chinese company but I think the villagers may help to look after it. We walked through this for a while before we were back ...

... smoke and hearing voices, we found another tour group that had also stopped for a lunch break. Here Sup invited us to have a go on a tarzan swing that had been fashioned from a thick vine hanging over a 4m gully. ZoŽ declined, not trusting her upper body strength, I did tentatively have a go (not trusting the vine to hold my body weight).

After the flying lesson was over we forged ahead and on the way sampled the delights of drinking from a freshly cut vine that drips ...

... soup and boiled food. Hey if you ever want to get rid of that outdated furniture, it tastes a bit like cauliflower. The chief of the village joined us and brought along some Lao Lao which is their Whiskey and tasted as bad as one could imagine but obligation was required and even Terry who doesn't drink indulged. After that was the free massage performed by the young girls of the village. Have you ever been **** kicked by a wild pack of ten year olds in costume. I ...

This guesthouse offer the freewifi, it's clean and it's a good deal for low budget rooms.
However, the hot water is shared so don't expect to have real hot water unless you take your shower around 11PM, in the morning it's nearly cold even at 7AM. The toilet make noise everytime someone use it in the nightboor's room (lak of ventilation) so if you're using it at this time, don't be surprise if bubbles pop up and wet your butt :p
You can have also free coffee and tea but the water is'nt really hot and no sugar.
Overall i would recommend this place, especialy for just one night after or before the trekking, because it's quiet most of the time (not in the main road) and the owner is helpfull with correct english speaking.
If you want to eat, i recommend also the "Papaya restaurant" juste after the corner, their Luang Namtha fried rice is so damn good and the owner (+waiter/waiteresse) are really funny! Good place for cheap breakfast also !
