Fun Things To Do In Chiangrai!

Recommended Posts

We have alot of members that have been in CR for a very long time.

I am just wanting to know some of the fun or interesting things that some of us do in our spare time.

I am aware of kayaking etc but are there other things such as..

Tennis groups

A place where you have been hiking or treking.

A football team for local farangs etc

Anything fun that you would recommend.

:o

"A place where you have been hiking or treking."

ITR, there is a hash going on tomorrow (Aug-19) at 4:00. Please see the "Hash House Harriers" thread for more info. Hope to see you there.

Jpop,

forgive my ignorance but what exactly is a Hash run? I have never done one before but I have heard that they are quite fun.

Is it a run or a walk or cycle?

Yesterday I trekked to the back of the rice fields and pulled some weeds, killed some snails, and checked on the progress being made by a new planting of a forage crop........and no, I have no openings.....the next possible reservation you could make would be many many years away and I can honestly say that I've never had a reservation canceled....sorry.

Unknown user,

I love a game of tennis so maybe we could organise a game! I know That ERG is always up for a game aswell so maybe we could get 1 more and call it doubles if you are interested?

Hi In The Rai,

Erg and I almost played tennis this morning. We thought it would be good to have some secret training before we would invite you.

Yesterday we played one hour badminton on the excellent badminton courts in the middle of town (free) and went to the Sportsclub to swim for one hour (30 Baht).

As our knees were heavily protesting against our plan to play tennis, we went for an hour swimming today.

Tomorrow (Saturday) is a Hash House Harriers run and Sunday is bicycle day again.

Do we have a hidden agenda behind all this?

Yes, you bet we have!

Maybe it would be a good idea to have one or two fixed tennis days a week, one or two bicycle days, one or two swimming days and lard the whole project with some bowling and kayaking.

And after a while we all would look like the Young Greek Gods!

For more information about real sports: The local 'Cafe des Sports', a subdivision of Bo's Place.

For more information about golf, HHH runs and similar divertisments: Svenivan!

Limbo :o

PS: The new gigantic magnificent and superb badmintonhall in Ban Pa Ngiew is almost ready.

Yes, hashing is a lot of fun. For a general idea check out this link for more info...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hash_House_Harriers

Some hashers walk, others run, the rest do a combination of both.

hey thats great! set up the time... and i can teach u Limbo . i taught many students here.

Swimming is nice too but not good for me to hang around with a group of old farangs. (little girl here).

tell me where and when you want to play (hope not at CR stadium, i hate adults' bahavior at the court that they use with younger like me) and i dont want to take my motorbike to town so if i really have to i will take bus. :o ; Mae fah luang University also have tennis court.

Hurry up i only got about a month to stay here before i move to BKK.

Don't forget to bring your cap. I might want to borrow it :D

And don't try to manipulate the outcome of the game before we even started!

A fun thing to do in Chiangrai is to teach all the neighborhood kids how to draw using the computer. Microsoft "Paint" which comes with most all computers keeps them interested and you can buy some educational software for a couple of hundred baht that has other fun drawing stuff on it. For the more advanced students you can get a learn to type program that works in Thai and English for next to nothing...then you can teach them how to type without looking at the keyboard.....hey, YOU might learn to be able to type without looking at the keyboard.

For fun, nothing beats melting a tub of butter in a microwave oven, and seeing if you can tweeze your eyebrows before the body of butter completely melts. Also fun is measuring elastic bands and recording thier data on an traditional index cards.

Measuring elastic bands sounds exciting but I'm baffled by the butter and eyebrow tweezing.
