    Back toi Doi Ang Khang for a night & the Lao Ting is closed - everyone has gone to Chiang Mai "shopping" for a few days.

    Enter the JitJat

    305535=22439-IMG_8536.

    just 80 metres away from the LaoTing = no big deal; although the location is not quite as convenient.

    305535=22440-GTR-DAK-ChitChat-06.
    One & two bed rooms in the grey cell block.

    Four bed rooms in the apricot cell block

    305535=22441-GTR-DAK-ChitChat-07.

    but the rooms are better - more modern - than at the Lao Ting.
    The one bed room

    305535=22442-GTR-DAK-ChitChat-02.

    305535=22443-GTR-DAK-ChitChat-03.

    305535=22444-GTR-DAK-ChitChat-04.
    305535=22445-GTR-DAK-ChitChat-05.

    Strong water pressure & a gas hot water system for those chilly Doi Ang Khang nights & mornings.

    The low season price: 600 baht.
    But Id prefer to stay at the Lao Ting because of the super location.
    Please yourself, but Doi Ang Khang has a lot of affordable accommodation nowadays.
    Check it out for a night sometimes.

    It should be noted that there is no longer any resort or guesthouse accommodation at Doi Ang Khang.
    The only accommodation available now are the tents in the official national park camping ground.

    Nature resort to close for rehabilitation

    Chiang Mai: The popular Angkhang Nature Resort will be demolished as a part to rehabilitate the ecosystem in Fang district.

    Kampanat Ruddit, privy councillor and chairman of the board of the Royal Project Foundation, presided over the handover of the resort to the Royal Agricultural Station Angkhang (Rasa). Once demolished, the resort's grounds will be incorporated as a part of the station to be rehabilitated.

    Gen Kampanat said several agencies, such as the Third Army Region, the Royal Forest Department (RFD), the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation and the Treasury Department, will jointly survey the area to map out a rehabilitation plan.

    The army will contribute soldiers and heavy machinery to demolish the resort, which is expected to take about two months to complete.

    It was also reported on Wednesday that the RFD has launched a special operation to seize protected nature reserves on Doi Angkhang -- that lie within the boundaries of Mae Fang National Park -- which have been illegally turned into privately run resorts and tourist attractions.

    Rasa was established 50 years ago as a royal initiative of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, and was intended to be a research centre for the development and cultivation of new strains of fruit and other crops, while at the same time provide jobs for local highland residents.

    I was interested to have a GTR dinner at DAK before everything was closed, but after a visit to DAK on the way back from the GTR MHS Memorial Ride, it appears as if we have missed the boat. Very sad to say. All the little shops & businesses at Doi Ang Khang are struggling badly - their business gone with few people staying there now.
