I am not a fan of Doi Inthanon. Not much panorama. And worse, endless numbers of buses, vans crawling uphill. All of them pelting unbelievable amounts of soot at innocent bikers. Plus the 108........... This Saturday after lunch time we were cruising direction Hang Dong not knowing what to do. Suddenly the sign= Doi Inthanon 81 km. That'll be a quicky, I thought I decided to yield to a longstanding wish of my permanent pillion that all Thais must see Doi Inthanon once. And what a surprise it was. NOT ONE BUS, LESS THAT 15 VANS, MINIMAL TRAFFIC FRESH AIR PURE! (of course I'm not taking about the 108 but the road in the National Park.) GO NOW if Doi Inthanon is in your plans. I was tired , no break to speak off. We went to our new discovery= A wonderful place to recover with very good food, most pleasing music , great ambiance is the BANANA TREE restaurant on the Canal Road, near Best Western Hotel hotel, recently renamed B2 Hotel.
