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.

It did however pour with rain the whole time we were here which was a shame as the grounds and ponds were so beautiful. After getting a bit soggy we dried up had a snack then headed up the highway to the black house. The highway to the black house was exactly that a 6 lane highway and man it was busy, there were ...
We stopped for two nights in Chiang Rai. As we were heading for the border crossing between Chiang Khong (Thailand) and Huay Xia (Laos), Chiang Rai was a good stop over to break up the journey. Chiang Rai is in the heart of the 'Golden Triangle', the mountainous area spanning three countries, Thailand, Laos and Myanmar (Burma), which is infamous for the opium trade of yesteryear. The first day we didn't have a lot of time so only managed to get to the night market. Everyone ...
... bending our legs and arms in odd directions and leaning on pressure points, pushing at our muscles with their hands, elbows, knees and feet! Afterwards, feeling a bit like we’d been squeezed between two rollers, we were given some green tea. Ned’s back and knee were much relieved by the experience and my joints also felt looser, although the aching muscles in my arms (caused by pulling myself up that waterfall!) sulked for the rest of the ...
