Highest Spot in Thailand - Post your photo here.

Discussion in 'Touring Northern Thailand - Trip Reports Forum' started by daewoo, Dec 17, 2008.

  1. It seems that everyone who is anyone has had their photo taken with the "highest spot in Thailand" sign at Doi Inthanon...

    I thought it would be good fun to post them all in one thread...

    I'll kick it off, I hope others will follow...

    Cheers,

    Will be there again sometime mid of this year but with another guy(s)
    who has yet to ride up north before.
     
  6. I see from the pics posted before that the highest spot has acquired a sign since I was last there:

    This is somewhere near the top I think:

  7. TiT... actually there are about 3 signs, all at different heights :) .

    The wooden sign is on the path to the shrine at the top where your photo was taken... I guess you walked up from the cafe and missed it...

    Cheers,
    Daewoo
     
  8. That would be this 1 :wink:

    That cafe does great toast with condensed milk if I remember rightly.

    I think this was not too far from the top, down a little path. The engine of a helicopter that crashed while surveying the area I think.

  11. This is a good day trip from Chiang Mai and when I did it I ran out of petrol on the way out. I was rescued by a very helpful lady who departed on her Honda Dream with my cash and returned with a container of fuel. There was no language between us - just me at the roadside looking glum and her stopping full of smiles. Only in Thailand.

    Some time ago I experimented with my GPS track of that day (and other local trips) and made a little video. It's not a huge file, about 7.5MB which, explains the poor quality, but is still better run twice to get it cached.

  13. Now that is a larf... the photo I mean... I always think of you as young, suave & sophistimicated
     
  14. Actually, in that pic I am wearing the jacket of the girl I was travelling with which is why it looks a bit tight - we swapped and she wore my leather as she was so cold up there. The jeans were mine though :wink:

    Cheers & Happy New year to all,

    Pikey.

  19. I guess I'm nobody - I didn't get my picture taken when I rode my Sonic up there a few years ago. But looking at all these pictures I noticed that the Thai on the 2 metal signs and the big fancy wood one all say 'Highest in Siam', not Thailand. Seems a little strange to me.
     
  20. Bit of a dilemma there I guess.

    They could have considered sending the wooden sign back to the carving shop ! But I presume that it was easier to cause a bit of fun by making a new-old metal ones.

    Another 'nobody' but happy. :wink:
