We left our accommodation just after 8:00am, and headed to the ADRA office for one last debrief. Along the way, we came across a group of travellers all on BMW motorbikes. The leader of the group was confused at first, because when he saw us, he thought we were one of his travellers, and was wondering how we were able to get past him and then come the other way. They had started their trip in Phuket, and this was their last stop before returning. Shame, I say, because they were so close to the Golden Triangle.


When we arrived at the ADRA office, we noticed how deep culture goes. Although ADRA is a Christian organisation, someone had put a Buddhist shrine in a hidden location behind the gate.


En route, we came across some stunning scenery, including this waterfall.


We arrived in Phayao just after 4:00pm, and found a place to stay for the night. It was an Army motel and very clean. We didn’t understand why civilians were welcome to stay here, and we didn’t ask. It was comfortable, clean and economical. Notice the Army marking on the top of the TV.


Then we rode around looking for a nice place to eat. The sun was starting to set as we made our way past the lake.


The lake there makes this a stunning location to enjoy the mild evenings.


After the sun set, we found a place to eat …


… and watched the security team drive past in a unique vehicle.
