My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

4NR: Tak, Thailand - A Mid-way Point...

“We can’t choose where we come from but we can choose where we go from there…”

(On the highest mountain of Thailand)

Day 12: 21 December 2015 (Monday)
Route: Doi Inthanon – Tak
Distance: 281 km

We had breakfast before we started riding towards the peak of Doi Inthanon.

Doi Inthanon, also known as the roof of Siam, is the highest mountain of Thailand at an altitude of 2,565 meters above sea level. The summit of Doi Inthanon is a popular tourist destination for both foreigners and locals. There is a Royal Thai Air Force weather radar station at the summit and the National Observatory is also nearby. On the main road to the submit stands two adjacent chedi.

After visiting the summit, we started riding downhill towards Tak. The weather gradually change from cool mountain weather to hot and humid. We reached Tak in the afternoon and went to Masjid Darassalam to perform our prayers and later had a late lunch at a nearby Muslim stall.

We checked in The Palm Resort and rested for a while. We had dinner at one Muslim restaurant situated at the main road.
