I was stunned today to learn that Mr Ho, ex Shin Sane guesthouse @ Doi Mae Salong passed away a few months ago.
Ho had a lease of Shin Sane for many years, but lost the lease a couple of years ago & opened a small GH / Cafe a few hundred metres down the hill past the 7-11.
Ho was always a loveable fun character to hang out with at the Shin Sane & I have multiple good memories of him at the Shin Sane.
A few pics I've been able to dig out from the GTR photo archives

Long may the sweet happy memories of Ho remain.
RIP Ho, your journey is over now dear friend.

Oh wow. I stayed at Shin Shan on my first scooter ride of the North. It was before the renovations and was a bit ramshackle and old. I sat up on the restaurant area overlooking the street, which is now gone. It's iconic Doi Mae Salong. RIP

A decade ago Doi Mae Salong was such as different place. Once the road had been metalled, during the rainy season sections used to slip down the mountainside. Do you remember getting by on a couple of feet of asphalt, wide enough for bikes but too narrow for cars? With few tourists around, one could talk to the villagers. A smattering of Chinese was handy. The old men had lead very adventurous lives.
