Sunrise along route 1091

Traveling in Thailand

In early morning of Christmas 2021 I was making a motorbike trip from Chiang Muan to Nan and was passing the market along route 1091 near Ban Pang Poei. And behind the market is a great viewpoint from where I had a beautiful view over the misty mountains of Ban Luang. And in this way with the fog you do not see that all mountains are shaved (all trees cut down) for the production of corn.

It is a bit a pity that the market is not taken care of. Originally some villagers from Ban Pang Poei were selling jungle food along route 1091 at the road going to Ban Pang Poei. But that was not safe as cars would stop in the road. So the government created a market about 1 km before that point. There is parking space, toilets and 2 row's of covered market stalls. But no maintenance so part of the parking place is jungle and only a few people are still selling jungle food. Then the viewpoint behind the market is actually closed with bamboo sticks and also partly overgrown. What a missed opportunities!


One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
