As I had extended my stay in the Elephant Nature Park with the dogs, it meant I had less time in Thailand than originally planned. I decided to skip visiting Chiang Rai, although it was recommended, in favour of Pai. There are many differing views on Pai if you read about it online. There are those that say it has become too much of a tourist trap, full of hippy backpackers and those checking out on life. Then there are the others that understand that tourism is what drives ...

... snotty noses and something for my chesty cough. It cost an arm and a leg. I wrote a bit of this then we went for a long walk, through the very small town and down to the river. The river wasn't large, but it was enchanting. Some very pretty chalets had been tastefully build on the far bank, over a little bamboo bridge, but they didn't spoil it at all.
