Today we enjoyed the resort and the amazing views of rice fields and mountains from our balcony, relaxing by the pool, making arrangements for South Thailand. Then we scootered towards Pai town.

We took a wrong turning which turned out to be a blessing, we saw amazing scenery including farmers tending to their fields against mountainous back drop, narrow streets where locals relaxed and chatted, beautiful temples, and dogs that refused to move from their chill out spot in the middle of the road!

Back on track, we headed through town on to Wat Phra That Mar Yen, 1km east of town and on a hill with stunning views over Pai.

We had a wander around the market then popped into Black Canyon cafe for drinks where we met Harbans Singh from Ipoh, Malaysia. He was on a road trip with some friends. We chatted to him for a while then wandered down to Chew Xin Jai restaurant, afterwards took in atmosphere of the night market which was now in full swing where there was lots of live music, great food and good quality local craft merchandise.

We then scootered back to the resort, it was a very cold journey back, where after gazing at the spectacular star studded sky, we called it a day.
