The route 4010, 1016, 4006, 1098, 4049, 1129, 4007,

Total distance 145 km


After breakfast it was time to move on towards Chiang Khong, I said goodbye to Fon then David and I rode out

Once off the awful dusty roadworks of the 1016 it was a pleasant ride through cleaner surroundings







A short stop at Wat Muen Buddha Mettakhunaram



We turn onto the 4049 which is a new road for me and its a twisty one through good scenery



We reach the 1129 and here its time to say goodbye, David turns left towards Chiang Saen and I turn right for Chiang Khong

Its a ride along the river today as I elect to take the 4007 following the river rather than my usual route of the 1129 as I have been told its a bad surface at the moment

Along the 4007 and I notice a few people seem to have onions growing outside their homes amongst the flowers





I didnt notice the butterfly taking any interest in these though





I am back alongside the river again now







Theres a lot of swirling current along here

I reach the 1129 and a shot back at the hills

A shot from the Huaisai Man viewpoint

Its a verey nice ride along here and at Chiang Khong I check into the Borishut guest house as always at N20.16.248 E100.24.301. Still 100 Baht for a double bed with hot water, the best value in town

Its a vegetarian pizza for 150 Baht at 999 bar tonight at N20.16.248 E100.24.323, just a few metres from my guest house.
Its the first time in all the times that I have eaten here that the Finnish owner has not been here, apparently hes gone home working for six months but his wife cooked a very nice pizza.

Normally I eat at the Lomtawan Restaurant but next time I am in Chiangkhong I'll try the 999 Bar as this pizza looks very nice.
