    Good Restaurants in Chiang Rai.

    Charlie said: "What really interests me is "wood fired pizza". If they do it well it should be excellent. Any idea of what day they close?" When we were there yesterday for lunch the Pizza oven was running. You find a telephone number in the Google Map link so you can ask when they are open/closed.

Lot of parking if you drive in all the way passing the restaurant.
  5. At the temple on the top of Doi Hang in Chiang Rai.

    Chiang Rai Golf Driving Ranges

    Kevvy, I like your first link, that is a good website for golfers in Chiang Rai! () But the second link must go to a website that has not got any information about Golf in Chiang Rai for the last 12-15 years.

    New ring road west of downtown C.Rai

    "but coming from town on the Highway there is no right turn to be had, the median strip is still blocked and you have to go halfway to the White Temple to do a u-turn." scea, coming from town passing the new bus-stn, then at next traffic-light where you can turn left to go the new Eastern ring-road, there you can turn right and make a shortcut to the western ring-road.

    I used a shop on "Walking Street" for many years. The guy speaks English, he got all equipment to check your eyesight and can make glasses the way you want them. And he is not expensive. His shop is opposite the place where you drive in and can park the car.
