The seaside resorts of Thailand do not go in the summer: on the coast of the rain. In the north of Thailand rainy weather also happens.

In August – September Hotel offers special prices. Double room with breakfast is now $ 75 per person per day. If you go there threesome, the price will be even lower.

The hotel is an hour’s drive from Chag Rai airport along a winding road through the jungle. The building of the hotel is built in the style of the ancient Kingdom of Lanna – however, in the French project and from modern materials. It goes down on the border hill to the blossoming decorative orchids of the valley. Porters, and those discharged in yellow-pink clothes of the local ache tribe.

Hotel lobby and terrace bar hang over the Rouqu River, which is just in this place with a powerful yellow-gray Mekong. On the one hand, the bar is visible by Burma with gold-plated domes of its Buddhist temples, and on the other – the poor Socialist Laos: not a single stone structure, except for the customs building, but only shacks collected from the girlfriend.

Shelter from three borders on Kayak on Mekong

Main entertainment – Elephant nursery. On elephants ride. To the rough side of the Giant, who in search of a banana skirt rotates with his trunk in a pile of twigs, filled with his feet, attach folding ladder. The tourist is closed on the back of the animal and, accompanied by the drivers, goes on a journey through the surrounding hills and villages. And around – Tropical jungle: a rainy blossom, Gunted cries of peacocks, reciting monkeys.

A couple of times a week, the tourbocho at the hotel collects a group on safari. Japanese jeeps are carrying guests for barely notable mountain slopes, laid through thick, not missing lights. At the top of the same hill, before turning, the jungle is unexpectedly broken down, and below, in the Burmese territory, endless irrigated plantations are opened. Probably, Fig. Maybe hemp.

Where the borders of Thailand, Burma and Laos come into contact at one point, Rouqu River crosses the bridge. It can be jammed and stuffed in the border market. Tourists without a visa are allowed to stay in the territory of Burma and Laos six hours and the possibility that we have to use: if the tourists in Burma though rarely, but go, then especially in Laos – never.

Now grow poppy is prohibited, and the wild population, forced to switch to the cultivation of coffee and watermelons, got trapped in poverty.

And finally, the last event: rafting on the Mekong on a long wicker bamboo boat paddle type. If scared her at the time of replacement of the metal boat. It otplyvut guests comfortably in a mini-cruise on the river, in the valleys which once were born the most ancient civilizations of Southeast Asia.
