Here is the area map and the location of photos I have taken so far â€“ Issan (Eastern Thailand) not covered yet and the west boundary of Thailand has some real large gaps. Add in the festivals I have missed and there is still a lot to see. Rest assured that when itâ€™s time to retire the Vitara it will have plenty of mileage on it. Paramount to see now is the Phi Ta Khon festival, Surin Elephant roundup, Mekong river boat trip, the 12 temples on the way to Siem Reap Cambodia, and the heartland of Issan.
I would also like to take a trip into southern China through Lao â€“ you can see a lot of Chinese vehicles here in Chiang Mai â€“ so if I can get the necessary paperwork â€“ that would be a fun trip too. I also have monk and ex-monk friends from Monk Chat in Wat Suan Dok that have returned to their villages in Lao, Cambodia, and Myanmar (Burma) and have asked me to visit â€“ do I have time ??? I hope so. God willing. Ohhh Well, itâ€™s massage time â€“ Gotta go
