The only thing I can say is that they are both in the middle of town and that you probably have visited them and if not, that you have at least seen them hundreds of times from the outside.

Unseen Chiang Rai, you know? Come on! Don't give up!

Limbo :o

How far is it to walk between the two places?

First price: A German beer! :o

Limbo :D

200 miles? Sorry we still don't know the metric system over here in Bush country.

But I still want the beer!

as people tell me, in the wiang inn swimming pool there are no guards, and only a letter telling you not to swim before 08.00 and after 00.00 in the evening, also they give you the free advise not to swim after a meal or when drunk.

I am also very interested, because acourding to Joel its only a 100 meter walk for me.

Come on Joel, you can do better then that, its at least a 150 metres.

Or can i not play, i like a german bear. :o

No Mr. Trebek, no, no, no!

200 Miles, pffft!

200 Feet maybe?

Anyhow, Joel hit the nail on its head: From the Wiang Inn to Bo's Place will be something between 100 and 150 meters.

And Erg is disqualified! He knew only the picture of the 'delicatessen' of Bo's Place but didn't know the swimming pool of the Wiang Inn. He learned that of me and later of Joel.

What an extremely slimy character to try to rest on the laurels of others!

Anyhow Erg, if you see Erwin next time, tell him that Joel gets an Erdinger on my bill!

If he doesn't want an Erdinger, give him a hamburger with french fries!

Honest is honest!

Gratulations Joel!

Limbo :o

Thanks Limbo! Must admit though, I only learned of the pool the other day (before your posting)while at Bo's Place ordering one of the wonderful new deli sandwiches (you don't have to order exactly what's on the menu - I swap articles between the two B99 listings; wonderful, so glad to have in Chiangrai).

Does seem like a great deal, free swimming! At Ing Doi (nice place), It's B50 for adults, B20 kids.

There's a sauna there too, B100 (10-15 min warm-up). At the Sports Club (south-west of Doi Khao Quai intersection if that helps anybody) it used to be B30, but I haven't been by in years (it's a nice place too).

These are unsolicited comments, I assure all who might be skeptical (as well, perhaps, they should be). But if you can't discuss anything that has to do with money, you can't discuss much, can you?

'Quadriderm' it is called. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It is made by a Thai company under authority of Schering-Plough (USA). Most pharmacies of Chiang Rai have it.

It really works! Within a couple of days the problem is gone.

Some swimming pools in Chiang Rai are not as clean as you might wish.

Mostly you don't notice that directly.

It takes a couple of days for the signs to show up.

Ok, the 'Quadriderm' is about 220 Baht.

If you become member of the sportsclub of the Dusit Island Resort you can use their torture chambers (the fittness and the sauna) AND the swimming pool for two thousand Baht a month.

Minus the 220 Baht for the Quadriderm, netto 1780 Baht.

And you can read the Bangkok Post and The Nation at the same location (30 times 40 Baht = 1200 Baht), so finally it only costs you 580 Baht :D

Keep in touch

with the Dutch!

Limbo :o

Oh yes, and the little sweet secret swimming pool at the end of the mo-ban on the road to Ban Panchamorn (in the corner before the bridge at the right side) and the one in Sinthanee 1 (?) in Laddawan. And the one in the sports stadium.

Is the one in the stadium still meeting-point for gays?

Limbo,

Get with the times. The Post and Nation are 25bt each now=50bt a day x30=1500bt savings if you went everyday. If you read them online= 0bt. Deduction not allowed. :D:D:o

In this way I never get rich! You could at least have let me the illusion.

Anyhow, I bought swimming trunks and I hope to launch myself soon.

In the mean time:

Not all pubs/restaurants in Chiang Rai are typically Thai.

This one certainly not. It looks more like a European place.

It's in the middle of town, not far from Gare Garon. More I don't say :D
