Prince Guesthouse, Mae Hong Son.

It's Prince Guesthouse. It's owned by an englishman who lives in Thailand for some years now. The teak wooden house is big, nice and clean. The rooms are fine, with privat toilet and shower, a wardrobe and television. For 400 baht per room you also can use internet for free.  We got a nice room at the first floor with a view over the lake, straight towards the temple Wat Jong Kham.after we put our things away, we went for a walk around the lake.

The lake was used as a bathing place in the the old days for the elephants. Now it's just nice to see it in the early morning when it's foggy. The temple is build around 1827 by ThaiYai (Shan) people, who make up about the half of the population of Mae Hong Son providence.

Temple: Wat Jong Kum Jong Klang.
The temple is made up in burmese style. In the temple is a 5 metres high sitting buddha.

The area is really nice and the town is small and peacefull. We did some grocery's in the local supermarket. After that, we're having dinner in one of the restaurants. It was okay, but not the most delicate dinner we had so far. We went back to the guesthouse where we desided to do a trip the next day. A tour guide showed us some things and we were allowed to choose what we wanted, because it's the low season and she didn't have much costumers. So, we said that we wanted to see the surroundings and the Longnecks. The rest was fine by us, aslong we didn't had to go to some handycrafts shops or stuff like that.  To canadian girls who also stayed in the guesthouse wanted to join us on the trip. So, we arranged everything for the next day and then we went to bed.
