Once our teaching was done, we had a morning in Mae Sariang to see the sights. Mae Sariang is not one of the main tourist sights of Thailand, but we enjoyed it. We stayed in a beautiful “resort” (resort meaning a guest house that is not in the city) overlooking the river. The teak floors and trim were in contrast to the lush greenery and white walls and bedding, but apparently I didn’t take a photo of it.
We were able to rent bikes for 50 baht. There were nicer bikes for 100 baht, and after the first hill I was wishing I had gotten one, but how could I resist a red bike with a basket and a Mickey Mouse key chain dangling from the seat?
The park is 7 km from town, though it seemed like the last 3 km were more like miles. The view was totally worth it.
