Top 50 Must Sees In Chiang Rai Province.

Recommended Posts

I was going to put a limit on it per member but nice to see you showing some restraint biggrin.png

Incidentally, you've given me inspiration straight away. wai.gif

Oh, any chance we can get rough directions as to where the attraction is, I Google Earthed those two VF and I couldn't locate the second one. sad.png

They have a website at Boon Rawd Farm. It is listed on my Map. I have some more pictures on my blog under "Visiting Rai Boon Rawd in Chiang Rai".

If you follow the road from the White Temple (1208) to the end and turn right on the (1211), shortly on your left you will see a big gold statue of the Singha Beer symbol. Turn left at the entrance.

I am indebted to you for giving me the motivation and an idea of what to do with my long neglected map. I have stripped it down to sites to see and a few routes, removing most of the uninteresting location markers. Have added many new images to the map today but have more than a few more to go.wai.gifsmile.png

I think it's a fascinating place, and the story behind it even more so.

Okay, obscure?........

Mae Sai Immigration, the gateway to Burma. People visiting as tourists can ( subject to the timing left on their trip obviously ) leave Thailand wander across the Friendship Bridge into Tachilek, Mynmar.

They come out after having put their feet on Burmese soil, and with a Mynmar visa to add to their collection. That's an attraction. smile.png

I suppose I better clarify the procedure for any guests reading this post. I'll make it simple.......

Go to Thai Immigration to the left of the building, they will stamp you out of the country.

Cross the Friendship Bridge by foot to Mynmar ( Burma ).

Go into Mynmar Immigration, they will give you a visa to visit the town of Tachilek only.

This will cost 500 baht. ( or $10.00 US if you have it with you ).

They will give you an entry voucher, and Mynmar immigration will retain your passport.

You can go for a walk into Tachilek, many people visit the market. You will also be offered tuk tuk tours of the town, I did one and thought it was enjoyable. The tuk tuk drivers will be waiting for you as soon as you pass immigration.

When you return, go to the right hand side of the bridge, walk past the scrum of Burmese people who use the first window at Immigration, walk all the way round and you'll see this sign

1002119_563255210379472_1310241237_n.jpg

Go to the window there, hand in your voucher, get your passport back.

Cross over the bridge, and fill in an arrivals form for Thailand, clear immigration and customs and that's you back in the country on a 14 day visa.

Remember, when you re-enter, it is only a 14 day visa.

Many of us non-tourist types have been over and back on several occasions without a single stamp in our passports. I guess we are missing out on the good stuff.wink.pngbiggrin.png

Then again we are compensated by being given a VIP pass, which makes us feel very very important.biggrin.png

So what will it be today? Perhaps Pong Pra Bath Waterfall , Lamnamkok National Park. I don’t have any images of the waterfall itself but the trail to the falls is worth the walk.

Everywhere people were quietly and unobtrusively enjoying this lovely environment. There were several young artists deeply emersed in their painting, seeming oblivious to others walking up the trail.
