  1. A bit late now maybe, but Route 1290 Mae Sai - Golden Triangle is under construction.
    It was closed for a day or two in the last big rain.
    If it rains you'd best avoid this road unless you're in a 4WD or on a dirt bike with GOOD tyres.

    Looks nice & dry doesn't it; but I got off the bike to take this photo, took one step, slipped & lost my balance!

    Time to move before it comes down!
