We booked a half-day local tour to save ourselves from too much riding. 330 THB, or approx SGD12 – things are really inexpensive here in Thailand!
But first, we rode up to Yun Lai Viewpoint to watch the sunrise.
DAY 9, 21 DEC (FRI) – PAI to DOI INTHANON, and then RIDING SOUTH
Ian and Euroy had decided to give Doi Inthanon a miss and start heading south. The plan was for them to head to Chiang Mai to catch the train to Bangkok, and then connect to the Bangkok-Hat Yai train. The rest of us will head over to Doi Inthanon before deciding how to get back home.
Enroute, we found a nice viewpoint. But it meant that we had to climb a short section of dirt trail.
And during our lunch stop-over, we received some bad news from Ian and Euroy – Chiang Mai has no cargo space for today and tomorrow. That means we’ve to ride down.
