Hello David, I just read in today's BKK Post thatthey intend to open 3 more check points in the North. Muang chet ton would be nice to link CNX with Paklai and save the lorry-crowded and very dusty trail going to Namheung. Ban Huakfine to get to Hongsa ,Though opening Huay Kon in Nan,wold be better. I could not spot the 3rd one on the map. KHOK PHAI,do you know how far it is fromNamheung or is it the same one? Keep goig,see you in Nov.Lung.
