Slow down, take some deep breathes, amazing bike trails, waterfalls, country folk grow and eat the best Mushrooms.
Banthi is located some 30 k from the centre of Chiangmai. Close by has lots of activites including nearby SanKampaeng Hot Springs, Mae On Water Falls, Bike Trails and opportunities to learn about what it takes to live in rural Thailand and survive. Local dialect is Spoken (tongtin). I would highly recommend a visit if you plan a trip to Chiangmai.

Highly recommend the overnight Bus booked from Monkey Republic Hotel in Sihanookville to Siem Reap. It’s a sleeper only and go for the top Bunk if possible. 12 hours and arrived fresh for more adventures with Earl.
