A weekend to Chiang Rai

Route 1148 from Nan to Chiang Kham in North Thailand

Although it is raining season we decided to go to Chiang Rai for 2 days, a bit shopping and meeting old & new friends. From Nan we took route 1148 to Chiang Kham, a route thru the mountains and passing stunning view ... if it was not so clouded and rainy. Never mind it was a nice trip but I adjusted my speed for safety. In Chiang Kham we had a lunch and the continued to Chiang Rai where we decided to stay in Le Patta Hotel, right in the middle of town. Now most people know Chiang Rai from the White Temple or the Nigh Bazar but we skipped both. Instead we did visit the beautiful Wat Phra Keauw and the local markt nearby this temple. Highly recommended if you want to experience the real way of life in Chiang Rai!
