Trip to Fang

Sawadee Khrap

We just got back from our trip to explore some of the Fang District area.  Located North of Chiang Mai on the way to Chiang Rai passing Chiang Dao, Chai Pra Kan, Fang, Mai Ai, and up to Thaton village.  We didn’t get all the way to Chiang Rai.  I am now processing almost 400 pics we got on the way and will post them next few posts to cover each area.

Some basic observations I have found : 

  • Lipton tea must have a monopoly on tea in Thailand – Few have other brands and almost non have herbal teas  – all have Lipton ???? 


  • All windows, doors are mounted in backwards in Thailand – must be a country code ????  every Inn, Hotel, Condo, etc is built this way – strange – is that a result of G I’s being here. 


  • At the Hotel we stayed at there were only 8 channels of TV and 5 of them were “Christian – Sow the Seed” revival programs from the US deep South. – You can’t outrun the Christians – not when they need money. 

Well in the next few posts I will have pictures – Temples, magnificent vista views, hot springs, massive bee hives, local tribal boys swimming, and other points of interest – stayed tuned. 

One thought on “Trip to Fang”

  1. I’m glad you have a good trip and are back safe and sound. I’ll be anxious to see the pictures!

    Thanks, Trying to get them on today – at least a start on the trip shots – I’m thinking I might break it into several post for faster loading.
