Saleng expedition, 24!

Our crazy road trip around Thailand and Laos on a tricycle (saleng).

Pho Prathap Chang to Sukhothai, HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY Birthday!

Celebrating my Birthday in Thailand! Not the first time but definitely a very special day! Just before midnight in the small town Pho Prathap Chang there were three karaoke bars, basically nothing else. So, let's get that birthday bash started!

Thai whiskey and karaoke, magical ingredients for making new friends! "Welcome to Thailand!"

Singing, dancing and having fun! Everybody was singing Happy Birthday a few times before and after midnight. :)

That was awesome! Now it's time to head to Sukothai!

Khao Pad Gai for breakfast (fried rice, vegetables, egg and chicken), fully used to rice in the morning.

This province has many crocodile statues along the roads...

Driving through beautiful landscapes.

Birthday cake!


Home of English!

The town X-ray?!

Windmills are very popular in Thailand, haven't seen a real one like we have in the country side of Holland.

Lunch in Sukhothai town, beef salad en dry red curry.

Very special Birthday treat, Le Charme Sukhothai Hotel! The best stay of our trip so far!

Accommodation recommendation: Le Charme Sukhothai Hotel, Sukhothai
Book with Agoda

Time to relax and celebrate some more!
