Lunch at Mu Tomyam Phitsanulok Noodle Shop · 2:20 PM

It is very easy to miss the entrance, so drive slowly. No English menu, so just order egg noodle soup. Though it might not look spicy, it is actually pretty spicy. A good bowl of tasty noodle. I bought some taro snack here, which is pretty good.

Stay at U Garden · 4:01 PM

We stay for one night. The place offer one of the best view in Doi Chang. I wish we have more time to just laid back and relax. The bathtub is pretty much useless, as it doesn't have privacy from the restaurant. We have mookata for dinner, perfect for child weather, but pretty time consuming to consume. Room quality is average, but the view is priceless.

Visit at Akha FarmVille อาข่า ฟาร์มวิลล์ · 2:46 PM

A simple and fun place to feed the sheep, enjoy the view and sip a drink. Have fun.

Late lunch at Khao Soi Mae Pimpon · 4:44 PM

The restaurant is pretty good, just next to the white temple. They offer good Khao Soi Chicken (60B) and Thai Red Curry Pork (75B).

Stay at Sleepy House · 5:44 PM

Clean, quite and fairly good location. A bit of a cat-themed. Nice breakfast.

Visit at Wang Put Tan Tea Plantation · 9:04 AM

Love this beautiful tea plantation. They provide some local costumes for photography, a few great photo spot, beautiful tea plantation on the hill, and chill with tea and snacks. I would recommend 2h to fully explore this place.

Visit at Phrathat Chedi Srinagarindra Stit Maha Santi Khiri · 4:35 PM

Temple at the highest point of Mae Salong. A simple temple with a great view of the mountain range. You walk up a few hundred steps of stairs from the town, or drive a few km up a steep road to reach here. Both entry points have a car park.

Visit at Pong Phrabat Hot Springs · 10:00 AM

This is a very typical local hot spring. Free foot dip, cheap fee for public bath, cheap massage and from 70B onwards for a private room. Do drop by if it is convenient.

Visit at Baan Dam Museum · 11:00 AM

The main building houses art pieces with AR effects using your phone. Also some "viking" furniture vibes with crocodile and snake skins, and a king chair made of buffalo horn and skin. You can sit on these furniture. The entire place is basically a park with many small buildings that house various furniture, drums and carvings, mostly quite repetitive.

Lunch at Aquatale Café · 2:44 PM

A cafe in the forest with good coffee and decent food. In is a nice cottage with outdoor seatings, with a koi pond. Love the food and the vibe.

Stay at Doowall hotel gallery · 5:37 PM

Sort of feel like a 5-star hotel, minus the amenities. We stayed in a cottage, which is quite small, but still nice. Our unit didn't have a good view. They have interesting art pieces, a garden with a lake, free boating and bicycles, free snacks, fruit and drinks, welcome drink and cake, decent breakfast. And a pool which almost no one swims in, as it is next to the snack area. The place is surrounded by rice fields, so who cycles to explore the surroundings.
