Garlic fields outside Thaton, on the way to Fang
Hotel in Fang. Very nice, $15.00 a night!
Beautiful temple at Chiang Dao caves
Herb vendor outside Chiang Dao
Catfish pond, Chiang Dao caves
Entrance to Wat Tham Chiang Dao
The cave was great. 453 meters, many temples, bridges over streams, and stalactites
Back in Chiang Mai, temples everywhere!
Beautifully carved and polished teak Buddha image
Kunan, or jackfruit. The tree is well suited to tropical lowlands, and its fruit is the largest tree-borne fruit, reaching as much as 80 pounds in weight, and up to 36 inches long and 20 inches in diameter.
And then it was on to Pattaya to wait for Ted to get his replacement Passport. Not exactly why I go to Thailand, but had never been and everybody said I should see it at least once. That was enough
Some cool cars
I asked for a half dozen oysters on the half shell. They were fresh, delicious, probably two dozen of them, and $3.00!
The duck was delicious too. Ate where the locals did, instead of the big seafood places where the clientele was mostly Russian! And the food rediculously overpriced
The beach was nice, but very touristy. And the umbrellas cost ya.
Went to the harbor. Lots of boat building
The yacht club and harbor were nice
Yacht club apartments at Ocean Marina Yacht Club
My Gucci motorbike to tool around on
There were a couple of nice temples up on the hill overlooking the city
The Chinese temple and gardens were truly beautiful.
As you can see, Pattaya is a large tourist beach town, lots of nightclubs, bars, and, well, rooms rented by the hour, if you know what I mean....and I think you do! Not really my 'cup of tea'. Onward to meet Ted and Nattaya in Ubon, and head to Lao
