Traveling in Tak province in North Thailand
Last year I did make a posting about counting all the provinces I had been in Thailand. And I saw I have been to (stayed in) 48 provinces out of the 76. So in the coming months I will travel via my postings from the most southern province I have been to the most northern province, with some photos and information about each province. This is part 30 of the 47 (out of the 77) provinces where I have at least stayed overnight once. Tak province borders on the west with Myanmar and on the east with Sukhothai, while north you will find Mae Hong Son and Chiang Mai. And on the south you will find Kanchanaburi province. A province of the beaten tourist track but an important place in the West-East Corridor of North Thailand.
Begin 2000's I came here a few time to stay overnight while traveling to Chiang Mai and while motorbike riding I did make it also a few times a destination to stay overnight. Tak town is not really a tourist destination but if you have to stay anywhere in that area then Tak makes a good base. And as I now search for photos of Tak I must say I do not find them in my photo source of almost 15.000 photos. But actually border area has stunning mountains, waterfalls and is a great area to travel. So I will need more time!
