We rent the bike today. I donâ€™t wanna know how much does it cost if we rent by ourselves but as we were lazy to get out and find the bike shop so we let the hotel did for us, itâ€™s 250TB per day. Two people, we share so itâ€™s about 125THB per person per day, ok not that bad. (better than take a red cab from places to places). I canâ€™t ride so Ale did. Had to tell him â€śplease do it slowly, weâ€™re not in a hurryâ€ť. But I know, people who love to ride, once their hands catch the steering, shooooom! Lucky me that this time was better than what he did in Nepal!
I love to ride even I canâ€™t but love to sit in if you drive for me. When the wind against your face, wow! In the city was hot but the weather was getting better when weâ€™re higher and higher.
Before there was only one way to go up to the temple ; by hike up the 300 steps to the gate. But nowadays can take the cable cars to the top. So if youâ€™re not too old, just hike up! ;)
Here again, I can get in for free. Iâ€™m Thai. But Ale had to pay 30 THB. To visit this temple. Everyone can get inside the gate but to see the Pratat (inside), short pants, short skirt are not allowed. Long time ago women are not allowed also but now, yes everyone.
One hour here then we went to The Bhubing Palace where the Royal family stays during seasonal visits to the people in the northern part of Thailand.
Ended up the day at the hotel earlier as we walked too much today. What we had for dinner? Ahhh, noodles! My favorite northern food is Kao-Soi, it looks like noodle but the taste is different. But two days I stayed there, canâ€™t even find one. Just this night, but wasnâ€™t yummy at all. Was disappointed. So back to the hotel and slept as we didnâ€™t sleep for days!
