Hi every one, today I would to invite you to Doi Mae Salong, Chiang Rai where I just have a chance to visit. Let's start our journey together>>>
This is my first time to travel to the mountain which makes me so excited. For this journey, I fly with Air Asia. There are 5 flights a day from Bangkok to Chiang Rai. You can check flight schedule and promotion of Air Asia here: http://www.airasia.com
Check-in for the flight to Chiang Rai
As there are many people at Don Mueng International Airport, I have checked-in online already. It is quite convenience because you do not have to wait in line to check-in just needs to upload your bags. You can check-in online before flight for a week. Moreover, there are also Kiosk for check-in if you do not want to wait for a long line. It helps to reduce check-in time and passengers will not miss their flight.

"Choui Fong Tea Yard"
It is beautiful greenery tea yard on both sides of the road^^
They do Co Nguan Tea Yard on mountain step which make it very beautiful and different from other tea yard. There are also restaurant and cute corner to take photos. It is quite famous for tourists and only 3 KM. from Isara Resort.
And another impressive place is "Dok Bua Tong field" that is blooming at "Doi Hua Mae Ka"
Direction from Isara Resort is you turn right at the entrance of Isara Resort and heading to E-Gor intersection until see the sign "turn left to Doi Mae Salong" then heading to Doi Hua Mae Ka. It is about 40 KM. or 2 hours drive. The road is good but a little bit curve and cannot drive fast.
"Dok Bua Tong field, Doi Hua Mae Ka, Chiang Rai", it is blooming all over villages.
It is very amazing and very beautiful for me as it is my first time to come here.
