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.

Then on to Fish/ Monkey cave temple where ...

So I rode around for a bit in the heat desperate for shade. A lady eventually pointed me in the direction of one. It all seemed a bit unusual in design. But I was not able to be picky. Nice room though. I collapsed and slept for an ...
... out for the evening walk. We like to go out again in the late afternoon to walk around some more. We also eat dinner at some local place. Usually rice and chicken, or noodle soup. Sometimes we get fruit from a stall for dessert, which is nice. Pineapple and watermelon are super refreshing.
That's about it. This post is really about the pictures. We took a bunch walking around Chiang Rai, which was a "typical" day for us. Enjoy.
