Nothing much wrong with the place; although could do with more light. Decent rooms and ok bathrooms and had a balcony looking over the river and a pool.

I took a saugtaew up to Doi Suthep- a beautiful temple high in the mountains where I went for ...

Well, that's about it for today. Not much to report at this point. It was nice to have a change of pace, so I cannot complain! I just finished packing for touring in a more Northern area of Thailand in Chiang Rai. We will return on Sunday, so only one night there.
I am not sure about the internet situation, so I apologize if my blog does not happen for Saturday.
