    Hope it's ok to plug a new bar(69) on jedyod Rd, it was opened around a month a go and kooki the owner is a real nutter and ask her yourself why she picked the name!!! makes a great night out.,plus have spent the last couple of times in the Baan bua guest house!,the owner is Tim (female) who speak great English and does a fine breakfast!,rooms start at 350 in low season,plus room to park our bikes etc.
    Chiang Rai has a slower pase than CM and can do loads of easy loops to get up there.

    Its behind the newish Orchids guesthouse, down the same Soi or driveway, been there for as long as I can remember. Over 15 years for sure. It is a very fine breakfast.

    Don't think thats the Place Dave. I think he's referring to Ban Bua Guesthouse. Never new there was a homestay place as well. Tim definately owns the guesthouse, not sure about the Homestay place.

    I know ban bua gh very well it s kind of funky place roomy but matresses were not comfortable and doors had gaps, it was 250 baht a night, hope they did some improvments.
    is it (69)a new place or another bar changed hand between the falang and police owns few bars on jedyod hard to survive for a local gal or a real nutter:shh: maybe have falang bf.

    I will ask her why she chose that name

    I dropped by 69 last week, nice place and nice owners. Kooki is nice, she has worked in CR bars for a fair few years and is a smart lady and her German bf is a nice chap too.
