Continuing our trip back to the refugee camp, the next morning we woke at our small house at the Moun-Ju-Kour Resort. Here is the view from our front porch.
and this is a shot of the main office & restaurant.
Last night – this was our sunset — spectacular. The next shot is Tasanai, the X mayor of Wiang Haeng city and owner of the Resort, and Jira, our friend from Suan Dok.
And or course the Rhinoceros Beetles, the staff had a bucket of them that they collected last night as the bugs flew around the Resorts lights – they sell them in Chiang Mai for the vendors who make bug collection displays for sale – I thought they ate them – but no, its for profit. And I also thought I’d throw in a flower shot – they were really beautiful with the morning sun shining.
I also really liked the glasses they used at the Resort restrauant. The sideshow has the other versions —– I’m going to try and get a set – wish they had a gay version – that would be neat.
From here we headed to the Wat Fa Wiang Inn temple to see if everyone was there yet – but Dr. Saneh would not arrive till 11 AM and that would make it too late for us to continue into the National Park – so we left early.
Here are a couple of signs at the Temple – lot of Burmese.
But before we left Wiang Haeng we stopped by one Wat we saw on the top of a local hill and then to the Monument for King Naesuan at the place where is is reported that he had a cock (chicken) fight while he was waiting to attack Burma. This place had a commanding view of the entire valley – a perfect place for the King to rest.
From here we headed into the Park – stopping first at Srisangwan Waterfall. Enjoy
I always love the boys playing shots – and they really like to pose and get their pictures taken. It was a beautiful day and I really envied them in the water – it was so clear and inviting.
We tried to take a side road to the Hot Springs area but bottomed out in the ruts in the road – next time I’ll rent a 4 wheel and then we will be able to see the “Unseen” parts of the Park.
So back to Chiang Mai Please enjoy the
One thought on “Return to Kuang Jaw Shan Refugee Camp – final”
I thought I had commented on this post, but anyway I wanted to say again, Great Pictures!! Traveling in Thailand like that must be great, so much to see and do. Who says you have to have a big city to have fun.
