    I propose a pre happy hour 45 minute cruise on the Khong, starting at 4.30 PM to get things rolling.
    Meet at the Pha Tan Pier.

    Cost is minimal & we can take a few coldies on board.

    Good report Ben. You really enjoy your GTR dinner hook ups.
    Thanks everyone who came it was a good night, especially with the boat trip - top value and fun to do in Chiang Khong.

    I appreciated all the sympathy for my bruises & bike repairs necessary.

    The rendezvous spot at the Tha Pha Tan pier is a beauty & unique on the Mekong: Google Maps



    There is nowhere on the 'Khong where you can drive to the river & park your car or bike beside the river on a nice big concrete pad like at Chiang Khong. Then sit, eat & drink right beside the river. Everywhere else you have to negotiate a dirt track or sandy beach, and / or the restaurant is high up on the the river bank. Tha Phatan in Chiang Khong is 5-star by that mighty river for a one-star price. Don't miss it

    Should you want to do a nice little sunset boat trip on the Mekong @ Chiang Khong, then "Captain Jack Sparrow" is the man to contact. He knows all the tricks, hot spots to stop & the best photo ops.

    You can contact him at the BBQ restaurant on the Tha Phatan pier.

    He runs his riverside restaurant with his wife & family. They are wonderful people.

    For the guys who come, if you want to add a comment or two with a few pics you are most welcome to join in.

    This month February Wednesday 27th February = Piang Luang for the GTR up country rendezvous.
