    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.

    Eye Glasses

    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.

    Wat A Place

    Some photos from Wat Ming Muang in Chiang Rai.
  20. "2. The 2nd restaurant seemed to be famous for its grilled shrimp. The only thing I remember eating there was shrimp in all kinds of ways. Very tasty. It was somewhere near Ban Du, Chiang Rai. I think. Either that or near the city center." There is a shrimp restaurant close to Den Ha that been very popular for more than 10 years. Here is a link in Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/qZzHyHm4tTz
  21. I just found Aurora HDR 2018 and I like the way you work with that program. You can work with Adjustment Layers and add Filters to each Layer. You can also add Image Layers. All Filters have a lot of sliders to adjust it just the way you want. And for each Layer you can adjust Opacity from 0 to 100%. You have Plugins from Photoshop and Lightroom. I have used the HDR-functions in Photoshop and Lightroom, used HDR Efex Pro and Photomatix Pro but for me, I now got much better control in this Aurora HDR 1800. Before it was only working in Mac but now they have a version also for Windows. You can find tutorials in Youtube made by Trey Ratcliff, Serge Ramelli and others. So what software do you use for HDR? (Yes, I know that many don't like HDR but we don't need that discussion here, please)
