When I am in Chiang Mai, one of my high school friend chat with me on Facebook: "Fahsai, are you in Chiang Mai, I am doing my internship in Chiang Rai would you like to come?" For me it like, "of course I am going but how do I get there". So I contact my sister for information to Chiang Rai. She told me that it takes about 2 -3 hours and just take the green bus. For more details about the green bus: Green Bus Chiang Mai - Chiang Rai Website **
My plan is just I am going to Chiang Rai tomorrow and say hi to my friend.
At 5.00am. in the morning, I take taxi to Green Bus Terminal (taxi is 200 baht, very expensive) because I need to catch a bus at 6.00am.
I arrive here at 5.30am. there are a lot of people already and I got the last seat to Mae Fah Luang. Later on, I find out that we can book the ticket online and pay at 7/11. The ticket is 155 baht. I get off at Mae Fah Luang because my friend (another girl) she would like to join my trip but the other girl who is on internship she live quite far so just the two of us.
