East Thailand

After the mad road trip, I spend the day resting before taking a night bus to Khon Kaen. The east of Thailand is touristless, maybe for good reasons you can say but I enjoyed my time there. People were even more friendly and smiling. No big attraction but a feeling of real Thailand.

Khorat a little bit more south was the same with some weird animals in buckets in the marquet.

From Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai by bus with a couple of French. We decided to rent motorbikes for a 4 days road trip. 125 cc with change of gear. I managed quit well. :)

The road was beautiful, sharp curves between hills and gorgeous landscape. We saw several waterfalls and swim in some of then. We walked into the forest and up a huge hill for a breathtaking view at dawn.

We've been surprised by the white temple. Brand new religious creation of a Thai artist.

Feeling of freedom and back to nature.

Crowded Chiang Mai in the north is a nice place to meet fellow travelers and see some strange fruits and yummy worms. I tried the dried ones.

On my way to the north, I stopped to the historical city of Sukkothai. I met a Frenchy and we visited the ruins on bike.
