A hidden gem in the chilled out city of Pai. Reasonably sized huts on stilts, right near the river and the walking street, for 350 baht (£6.50), you are laughing.
With similar looking and similar pricing huts all along the river, you are spoilt for choice. My only reasoning for my recommendation is simply the owner.

That night we had our overnight 12 hour ride to Chiang Mai. I have been done overnight trains before. They are okay I guess. They are set up to be seats until about 9pm, when a guy comes and pulls out bottom and top bunks. The top bunk was significantly smaller than the bottom bunk. I also learned that it became very hot on the top bunk making sleep difficult ...
... the king deserves more respect than Buddha. So I had to borrow pants to make myself decent. On the way to the reclining buddha, a tuc-tuc driver stopped us to talk to us. He seemed very nice and wanted to offer us genuine advice about the city temples. When we told him we were going to the reclining buddha, he said it was closed. We then enquired about Wat Arun, which was closed too apparently. Then he offered to guide us to the open temples. We were bummed and ...
