Thoed Thai is my favourite out of the way traditional "back water" town in North Thailand.
The ex home of Khun Sa the infamous opium warlord / Shan freedom fighter.

The best greatest Poi Sang Kong festival Ive ever had the pleasure of participating in
Poi Sang Long - 2011
Plus Shan New Year
Shan New Year 2011 Thoed Thai
Thoed Thai might be out of the way bit it should be one of the highlights of a night in the Golden Triangle for anyone.
A fabulous "wild west" town full of charm for the adventurous.
It's also the place where I go for Shan spiritual cleansing - getting rid of life's bad luck & bringing in the new luck
