Chiangmai 4D/3N with a big group - Day 3 & 4

Date of Travel: 10-13 May 2014

Waterfall at Doi Inthanon National Park

Day 3

We decided to enjoy nature today, and headed to Doi Inthanon National Park. It is the highest mountain in all of Thailand, 8415 feet above sea level. Entrance fees were THB100/person and THB30/car. Our first stop was this lovely waterfall. The kids went down to the water to play, refreshing cool air.

Then up to the Queen and King Pagodas for the view of Chiang Mai.

One of the pagodas was under renovation. But the air was nice and cool

Jumping shot - FAIL!

We then headed down to a village for a simple lunch, and then to see the actual village. The most famous village here is Karen village, but this was NOT Karen. Sorry I don't remember the name again.

The guide says, this special leaf has liquid inside such that you can blow a bubble. Everyone tried!

Ta-dah! The bubble is formed!

This place sells coffee

I had reserved a table at a garden restaurant on the way back from Doi Inthanon, again it's a unique garden restaurant. Khao Mao Khao Fang Restaurant. Tel: 053-838444/053-838838
181 mu 7,Ratchapruek, Nongkwai, Hangdong, Chiang Mai, Thailand. What's so unique about it? "Mummy, there's a tree inside the toilet!!"

Inside the toilet at Khao Mao Khao Fang Restaurant. A huge garden restaurant

Even the sink has been modified

This is a dumb waiter that goes round and round the track, delivering plates back to the kitchen

Everyone happily taking photos everywhere

The actual meal itself? Not bad, 7/10

After dinner, one van went to the Night Safari that is very close by. Entrance THB800 adult, THB400 per child including the Tram Ride. English speaking Tram departs from North Zone 7:45pm & 9:30pm, and South Zone 8:30pm & 10:15pm. Tram ride lasts approximately 1 hour. The guide charged THB1000 for the van to wait until they finished and send them all back to the hotel. Others returned to hotel.

Day 4
Our flight was at 4:55pm. We all had a lazy morning, either going shopping or massage nearby the hotel. We did not use the guide anymore, and just used the hotel van to the airport. Nothing much to report today, but everyone asked, "So where is our next destination??" - Pengsan!
