My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Q5 4NR Day 16 : Mae Sai - Chiang Rai - Pai

Day 16: Monday, 12 Dec 2016
Route: Mae Sai - Chiang Rai - Pai
Distance: 387 km
Hotel: Baan Aew Pai


Breakfast was self-serviced. We toasted bread and cooked our own eggs. Coffee was free-flowing all day.

We started riding out of Mae Sai on Route 1 towards Chiang Rai to look for a tyre shop. It was cool in the morning and at quite a distance we had to ride carefully as the mist was so thick and visibility was at its minimal.

In Chiang Rai we met a few Thailand bikers who assisted us to locate a tyre shop. We took a short rest while waiting for tyre change for one motorbike. At the tyre shop the gang had the opportunity to purchase gloves and bike accessories.

We rode on Route 1089 towards Pai then on Route 107 passing Fang and through several National Parks by-passing the town of Chiang Mai. We rode carefully on the twisted road of 762 corners to Pai and made a coffee stop at 32 Coffee Hill Resort.

We arrived in Pai around 6:00 pm and checked in Baan Aew Pai Resort for Baht700/per night. We had an early dinner at Nasi Ayam Muslim Restaurant. At night we strolled the night market along the Walking Street and bought some souvenirs.

We had an hour of strong foot massage before we retired for the night.
