The journey to Pai was a bumpy one, by the end of it you certainly new the person next to you, 762 curves in the road meant we were sliding all over the seats.
We stayed in the best place yet, bamboo huts on stilts with a hammock chill out area and awsome views of the Thai mountains. It was a tiny town and quite touristy but in a good way. Everyone here was so chilled it was a nice atmosphere to be in!
Our 2nd day in Pai we chose to go tubing (big rubber ring) down the river, we got driven 7km up river and dropped off and that was it, we lazily floated through the little villages near Pai getting to see Thai fisherman and other people who clearly lived with the river at the heart of their lives! Even washing clothes in it which we were getting a bit dubious as to what was in the river as we got closer to town, definately wouldn't wash any thing in it :/
It was a great way to relax though and that evening met up with other travellers for a drink and go to a
party for Bob Marley's 67th birthday.
The other days in Pai we hired a moped and whizzed through the Thai countryside visiting waterfalls, hotsprings and the canyon. More beautiful scenery and gorgeous weather, were both finally getting some colour on us... although it may just be dirt!!
