      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.

      ... in Thailand but our concentration was on the Karen tribes of Kayan ("long-necks") and Kayaw (“big-ears”) along with the Akha tribe. In the late 1980s, due to conflict with the military regime in Burma, many Karen tribes fled to the Thai border area. The Akha first entered Thailand from Burma in the early 1900's having fled the decade’s long civil war .

      Day 59 - On the road again! The six of us fly to Chiang Rai for a bit of northern culture. We take two taxis to the hotel and the Clayton's seem to have the chatty / nosey driver. He wanted to know how many daughters Dad has, so that he could marry his son off! He tells us that all his money goes to paying for his son's university education.

      ... visit some of the hill tribes. We met two kinds, the first originally from Tibet who have been in Thailand for about 200 years and are now considered Thai and then the long neck tribes who are refugees from Burma and who are still not given the same rights as Thai people.
