On Saturday Don, my Canadian friend , with Toy and myself went on a small break to Chiang Dao.
On the way we called into the spectacular Wat Banden in the Mae Tang district It is a place for worshipping the stupas of the twelve Chinese zodiacs. We had lunch at a nearby resort.I enjoyed coconut juice and sweet and sour fish.
Here is a video of Wat Banden
In Chiang Dao we stayed at Chiang Dao Nest Two with its mountain view. It was a bit rustic but clean and comfortable enough.
We had dinner at Chiang Dao Nest One which is noted for it’s cuisine.We all had the same dish,filet of Indian brill fish.served with a fried potato and salad. It was delicious!
We awoke on Sunday morning to a cold start and had breakfast at a nearby restaurant, where the cook’s son wandered around with his pet duck. He took a liking to Don.
We then explored the Chiang Dao cave area before heading back to Chiang Mai.
On the way home we lunched, at My Backyard restaurant in Mae Sai.
