    Good Restaurants in Chiang Rai.

    Back Home Restaurant in the Condotel I was back today for dinner and here is the reason: See photos ! The Special was very, very good and I could hardly eat all. I took the beef one. I met many friends there, the place starts to get very popular and I understand why.The third photo is of Steve, the Chef from England (actually born in Scotland). I had a few words with him, a very nice guy. And yes, I will be back!

    Weather in Chiang Rai region

    I don't know if it is longer yet, wet season for me goes on until beginning of November. But you are right that it is wetter. What I understand from the statistics we got 23% more rain in Northern Thailand from January to July. Statistics for August are not released yet. Check TMD Monthly Weather Summary There you can go back to October 2017 and you can see it was raining also in November 2017 - January 2018. So keep your umbrella!

    Hillside bus plunge injures 19 in Prae

    I cannot understand why they choose the road over Phrae - Phitsanulok when they can go HW 1 with 4 lane all the way to Bangkok. OK, it is 38 km longer, according to Google Maps it takes 14 minutes longer but I think the passengers would be much more happy with HW 1.

    Good Restaurants in Chiang Rai.

    Green house café and bistro, new place in town They have probably just been opened a month or two. Very nice place with a quite big menu. You find many different juices and I counted to 27 different smoothies, they have Spaghetti, Steaks, Thai food and more. We were there around lunchtime, my wife had some Thai food she was happy with and I had Coffee and Peanut Butter Banana on Toast. The coffee was very good and it was hot! At many places I got just warm coffee and that is not what I want. The place is not in City center but not that far out. And they have a lot of parking.Very nice place and with very good service.

    Chiang Rai Train Station

    What city do you mean? There will be no train station in Chiang Rai city. Nearest station probably in Den Ha 57 km away.

  20. Last 13 years I have used the original. That is stones my wife buys at the market. Chrystal white and you have to sand it to make smooth. One stone size of your fist lasts 2 years and my wife pays 35 baht per kilo (that is probably 10 stones). She calls it "San Soom" or something like that. Just wet it before use. They works absolutely perfect. Second photo of the back, not sanded.
