During my 3-day trip, to my pleasure, I realized there were a few other backpackers here as I highly appreciated such a less-traveled place. I was able to immerse myself with the life of hill tribes as I stayed with a Thai family. It was really fantastic to recall the moment of sinking my teeth into fabulous dishes, viewing stilt-houses of Thai people, riding with cow or buffalo-drawn carts.
