Where I stayed
Ting Tong Bar
My first few days back in Pai were spent hanging out with the Ting Tong guys - the motto of the bar being 'Lazy Days, Crazy Nights'
Becky and Lauren had spent their first few days in Pai confined to their room, having picked up pretty bad cases of the 'traveller tummy' themselves. In the time we've known each other, two weeks upon writing this, we've only spent one day so far when we've all felt healthy! Once they got better we rented mopeds, two between the three of us, and used them to do some sightseeing in the beautiful countryside around Pai. Pai is a small town nestled in a valley surrounded by mountains. There are numerous waterfalls and some hot springs that we have been to see, and every drive is a scenic one with layers of mist-covered mountains disappearing into the distance as if they go on forever.
We've had some crazy nights out in Pai too, and although we have enjoyed exploring the varied nightlife we always of course end up back at Ting Tong, and that is where my best memories of this place have been formed.
On my last night in Pai, after Lauren and Becky had left, my beautiful Thai friend Ax treated my friend Rebecca and I to a night in a gorgeous luxury resort in Pai. It was probably the nicest place I have ever stayed in and I will never forget his generosity and the fun time we all had there. I can't wait to return the hospitality when he visits England in December!
