#Sunset in Mae Sot

I always love sunsets. Fortunately, Mae Sot in Tak Province of Thailand provides stunning views of the Sun setting down from the mountains. I also think that the almost unpolluted atmosphere in this part of the Southeast Asia helps in producing some of the stunning sunsets I've seen.

Mae Sot's Memorial Park for its revered warrior

Inside Mae Sot's Science and Knowledge Park is a huge memorial for a Thai warrior. But since most of the signs in this park were written in Thai and Burmese, I am lost as to the hero's name.

I searched and found the place on Google Map's street view but there was no review regarding the place.

Nevertheless, Thais' respect for this warrior can be seen through their daily visits to the memorial and through their offerings.

Thais offer incense and candles.

Others offer several amounts of Bahts which, I believe, are used to maintain the place, which has a lot of cock statues. Hopefully, before I leave this place, I will learn the history behind the hero.

Chiang Mai's scorpion tail river cruise

If you are looking for an alternative way to enjoy Chiang Mai, Thailand, then the Scorpion Tail River Cruise is a must.

Visitors to this ancient city can learn and appreciate its history on a different lens as the guide shows how the river and the city changed with the times.

Rivers are the highways of the olden times and learning how the waters of the Chiang Mai River rose and subside through its glorious history is very interesting.
