    A tip off from the "Ambassador" on a local attraction that no one knew about!

    "Now How is this! They have a Golden Rock Replica in Mae Rim."

    Hahahaha tourist in your own backyard!
    This due the fact that signs to an attraction always stop about 5km before the attraction itself.
    And due to the fact like location markers like "Follow route 101, at km47 go left and drive another 27km".

    Thanks! Thailand is full of beautiful surprises.
