Our Deaf Thai friend from Bangkok arranged us to meet with another Deaf Thai friend who lived and owned a guest house in Pai. He came to pick us up at the bus terminal and took us all the way to Pai. It was another 4 hour long and winding drive through the Doi Inthanon National Park. The park was lovely. On our way we were stopped by a heard of cows. And then later we took a break near some canyons. I didn't know that Thailand had canyons, but they weren't like Nevada. We crossed the Doi Inthanon National Park to Quiet Pai. Pai is known to be Quiet Pai or Pai in the skies.
When we got there, I fell in love with village
During our stay we rented a motorcycle and drove all around the village, stopped at hill tribe villages and a Chinese refugee village too. We also went trekking for two days and slept in the jungle one night under a makeshift shelter of banana leaves and cooked our foods using whatever resource we could find in the jungle. We made bamboo dishes, utensils, cooking pots and drinking cups.
We also found a free and open hot spring and soaked in the water for hours. Very relaxing!
Ah.... Pai one of a kind and a paradise.
