Chang Rai Down Town

We shifted to the hotel downtown instead of staying at the hill top at my cousin's house. I asked my cousin to recommend me a hotel which is clean, reasonable price and strategically located where buses, taxis and food is easily accessible. He brought us to a nice business class hotel called Suknirand Hotel (Telephone number: 053-711055 / 053-711801. The room rate is amazingly cheap at RM40.00 per night, with one queen size bed and one single bed. Just nice for me and my two sons. The hotel has been repainted and my only comment is the air conditioned which is not so cold especially during the hot season.
The hotel is strategically located as it close to everything I wanted. There is a Night Bazaar just about 10 minutes walk where you can get lots of local food, shopping and at the same time watching cultural performance every night.
The Wet Market is also closed by our hotel where local dishes, fruits, flowers, clothing, vegetables and meat can be obtained.
Another attraction nearby is the new Clock Tower. At each hour, the light at the tower changes with musics can be heard.
Other attractions around down town are the Buddhist Temples such as Wat Phra Singha, Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Jedyod.
