We would highly recommend this resort. Every attention to detail was made. The grounds were beautiful, the service was superb, the food was marvelous, the owners and staff so genuine and helpful. Yet it felt so much like old Thailand all around you - the gentle fog around the hills and mountains, the gently flowing Maekok River at your door, the stillness and silence of small town Thaton, yet the call from the Wats in the hills made the experience almost otherworldly and magical.

... against it.We arrived at our next hill tribe mid afternoon with our bamboo hut up above the hills overlooking the town. It was soon evident it would be as cold as last night as the sun went behind the hills so we spent the majority of the evening huddled around a campfire before heading to bed.

... I will look for some. I am grateful that nothing happened to us and Juan did a wonderful job of protecting me. So in the end I am grateful. Tommorow we plan to go to Chang Rai. We are taking a three hour long boat ride to get there. I am a little nervous to get into these chocolate brown flowing waters, but I am also excited. It should prove to be an experience, another ...
If anyone criticises the fact that I'm not particularly bronzed, I may ignore you for several months. I've endured sweltering heat with very limited sunlight - anyone who knows me will realise just how grumpy (and sweaty) I am the moment the atmosphere exceeds room temperature. It feels as though I have trained for the olympics but won't be able to compete (i.e. will have to endure the phrase 'oh but where is your tan?').
Preemptive ranting aside, ...
... The doors were carved with the most incredible detail and must have been over 30 feet tall, walking thru them I felt even shorter than I already do.....is that possible? Lol
We walk thru the back of this temple and its like a Viking gothic play ground, or back yard. There are mor black temples strewn about some housing massive pythons, others massive logs created to resemble benches ...
