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.

Day 22 Today we are moving on. As we couldn't book the cookery class we decided to go to Pai. We booked a ticket yesterday with the minibus. There are 762 curves in the road on the way to Pai and apparently the minibuses drive like crazy so we have been a mixture of excited (more Dave) and nervous (more me).

... then went on to the giant shopping centre MBK.
MBK is pretty much a maze of stalls with a floor plan that remains a mystery. Personally, I reckon it kept moving around like the Great Staircase in Harry Potter. After waiting for ages for them to unlock my phone (forgot that would need doing), sorting out my sim card and just generally trying to find the way out - we escaped and caught the Airport Link back to our hotel.
6th September, we stayed ...
... a taxi (with seatbelts and anough rooms for bags in the boot!) to the airport. Along the way, we found to our suprise that there was little traffic. All the traffic was heading in the opposite direction (i.e. towards the city), so getting to the airport was a breeze and we arrived early. It dawned on me why there were gigantic electronic signboards everywhere - it was for drivers stuck in the traffic - of course! Static billboards were boring, but electroniuc ones ...
... past and present , from East, South and Southeast Asia with a special emphasis on Thailandīs royal court and Her Majesty Queen Sirikit.
My overall impression about the Grand Palace complex was very good. I was by myself so I didnīt have to rush and took my time. I tried to absorb at least some basic information about the sight, captured hundreds of great shots and even managed to contemplate a bit. I was very glad to come.
Well, everything canīt be perfect ...
