The Rimkok Resort Hotel is on the Kok river across from town which means you need a taxi or the hotel shuttle to get anywhere. The rooms are mostly set in the tropical grounds of the resort and are comfortable, serviced and air conditioned. Our stay included the standard buffet breakfast which is enough to see most through the morning. The central activity is the large pool with poolside bar which overlooks the river. Service was mediocre and would rather have stayed somewhere with more access to Chiang Rai such as the Dusit.

This wasn't to bad as we used this opportunity to spend more time in the British themed restaurant - which I noticed even had a Beatles poster - eating more bacon and egg sandwiches and macaroni cheese! Later on, it was time to go ...
... rings. The heavy rings push down their collar bones making their necks longer. The people of this tribe came to Thailand as refugees from a civil war taking place in Myanmar between the government and the hill tribe people who want independence. Unfortunately, life isn't necessarily any better for them in Thailand as they are exploited in large numbers for tourists. In fact, many faux villages have been created for the Karen to live in simply for ...
... that settled in Mae Salong kept it as a military base in preparation for an eventual counter-attack against communist China. They funded their arms purchases with opium grown in these mountains and rubbed shoulders with notorious Burmese warlord and drug baron Khun Sa, who initially trained with the Kuomintang before founding his own army.
