Just took a short trip to Doi Pui Hmong Village, farther up the road from Doi Suthep, to get some photos of the area . When you get there ask for â€œTonyâ€ â€“ great guide and can tell you the history of the village.
The last shot is of a great marijuana plant growing in the garden â€“ they also have samples of poppy growing there too â€“ that used to be the villageâ€™s main crop â€“ now tea and tourist .
Next week I am planning on a trip, with a friend, to Uttaradit, Sukhotai, Phitsanulok and maybe on to Khon Kaen, Udon Thani and Nong Kai if we have sufficient time left. Should have some great photos –
