    Checked into the Phu Tong Place hotel for 400 baht. Showered & went back to the lake for the night.

    Ate at the Chaliang (but I prefer the Nong Ang) , drank at the Lake View Pub & Restaurant (great smooth jazzy band)

    Phayao is only 120+ kms away = approx 1 1/2 - 2hrs fast safe ride.

    Phayao by the lake is an excellent overnight trip for gaining brownie points guys. Give it a try.
