Travel Diary #37: 14-21 November 2016, Visiting a friend in Chiang Rai, Thailand

Back to blog list

Entry #37 of our travel diary. Our first week in Thailand, visiting our friend Jacques in Northern Thailand.

14-21 November 2016 – Chiang Rai and around 

This was a special week for us as we visited and stayed with our friend Jacques. We first met this Canadian 4 years ago in Laos, visited him in Chiang Rai and promised to come back for a longer period. The time was now. We had a great week, sharing great food, visiting tea and coffee plantations, staying in a Lahu village and in a top-of-the-hill house with a magnificent view. He lives in Chiang Rai for several years and has immense knowledge of the place, and showed us a more authentic Thailand, far from the tourist trail.

After a great week we left to Chiang Mai. But this is not a goodbye. In a couple of weeks Jacques will join us for some exploration in Cambodia.
