Chiang Rai and surroundings

We kept north direction and arrived in Chiang Rai, 200 km from Chiang Mai. This city has much smaller scale and more rural character. It applies that more north less traffic 🙂 So riding a motorbike here was piece of cake. The city has AGAIN huge market including street food, grocery, burcher, fruits and flowers, and of course number of dress shops and surprisingly many jewelleries.

More exciting than Chiang Rai was though the surroundings. Starting at White Temple (it is in top 10 of Thailand, so we had to see it 😀 but actually it was quite nice…), we went to Khun Korn Waterfall, 70 metres high, probably the third highest one in Thailand. And we finished our day trip in Doi Chang mountains which are famous for planting coffee and macadamia. Yes, we know now how such a tree looks like 🙂 I must say that the countryside was just amazing. We made 150 km on motorbike but it was worthy!

V nasi ceste jsme pokracovali dale na sever do Chiang Rai,  200 km od Chiang Mai.  Toto mesto je mnohem mensi a taky asi planti, že cim vic jste v Thajsku severneji, tim je doprava klidnejsi. Pujcili jsme si opet skutr, ale jizda zde sla jako po masle. Ve meste ZASE najdeme trhy s hotovym jidlem, masem, zeleninou a ovocem, ale take opet ruzne obleceni a prekvapive spoustu zlatnictvi.

Mnohem vic je ale zajimavejsi okoli mesta. Nejdrive jsme se zajeli podivat na White Temple, jelikoz je v top 10 turistickych atrakci Thajska, tak jsme ho samozrejme taky museli videt 😀 ve finale je ale celkem pekny… Potom jsme se vydali podivat na vodopad Khun Korn, 70 metru vysoky a asi treti nejvetsi v Thajsku. Nakonec jsme jeli do Doi Chang hor, znamych pestovanim kavy a makadamu. Vyskove jsme byli skoro jako na Snezce 🙂 Krajina byla paradni a prestoze jsme najeli 150 km, stalo to za to!
