DINNER
4 good choices
The Baan Maitri - the best THai food
Rin's Bar - big servings of farang "pub food."
Bamboo Mexican - the best fresh Mexican food anywhere on the Mekong
Pan Pan - guesthouse & restaurant open late at night when the others have closed

BAAN MAITRI
270025=21343-15-baan-maitri-ck.jpg

The Baan Maitri restaurant has the best Thai food in town.
It is riverside, downstream from the customs office & between the Rim Nam & Rim Khong restaurants.

Cops & governement oficials from Chiang Rai often come to dine here when in town.

PAN PAN
Late at night in Chiang Khong most of the riverside restaurants are closed by 9-9.30PM, with most of their business done late afternoon – dusk – early evening.

If you get caught out, then give the Pan Pan Guesthouse – Restaurant a go.

Its cheap ‘n cheerful
GTR-IMG_5899-.jpg


& damn good food – as we found out = worthy of a return.

Chiang Khong Night Life
The Wua Han Sankhampang is the adult night spot for a late night out in CK.
No delinquent teenagers. The customers here are hospital staff / teachers / govt officials.
The music rocks & the WHS is always tops for a good night out in CK.

Khun Nit is the owner
IMG_3630.jpg

& in the day time doubles as a CK town policeman & he’s a good one. Very popular & honest.
He’s been a long time GTR friend for several years so you all be good in CK now.

The Wua Han has moved location, across the street & further out of town, (opposite Jan Yim)
A much bigger, smarter, more upmarket, cool place.
