North Thailand Trip - Day 3 San Ju Point Part 1

Our plan today is to explore the Eastern Slope of Doi Lang. Not too long ago, Eastern & Western Slope are link and we are allowed to bird at both side without the need to detour to East Gate to access the Eastern Slope. Heavy military presence today means we have to travel additional near to 200km to visit the other side of the national park. 
Chiang Rai Market
As usual, we stop by a market to get breakfast and lunch.
Chiang Rai Market, Thai noodle
These noodle will be our lunch for today.

The people here are all very friendly. We also get some dessert and as with most Asean countries, palm sugar is one of the main ingredients.
