Power Couple Travels to Pai, Thailand

Pai Memorial Bridge
Our Thailand adventure continues on as we hit the road from Chiang Mai to go to the small town up to the northwest of Thailand called PAI. The journey took 3 hours from Chiang Mai and along the way, we stopped by some great spots.

First, we stopped by a local restaurant to try a local Thai noodle soup called 'Khao Soi' which was amazingly filling and yummy. Since we are light eaters, it was enough for lunch. Apparently, it's a dish that's only widely available in Northern Thailand.

Then along the way, we stopped by at the Doi Kiew Lom Viewpoint where you can see an amazing view of Pai. There were lots of backpackers and tourists in that little park up there, taking photos and taking turns in riding the wooden ferris wheel. It was quite a challenge getting on it and making it turn manually with the help of other friends. We also met a French guy named Michel Saint Martin who was currently traveling around the world with his wife in their mobile home.

And finally, we dropped by the historical Pai Memorial Bridge which was built by the Japanese during the World War II. It has its own history and it was such a delight to see a Thai guy dressed in soldier uniform, greeting all the tourists, and posing for photos. His name is Kaptan Koboli (Captain Koboli) and he even has his own Facebook page.
