Just a few minutes drive to the south west of Chiang Rai town is Singha Park. It wil be on your right hand side as you come from town. You can't miss it, just look out for golden dragon looking beast (as per the The Beer Singha brand).

As you can guess, it is owned by the same people who own Singha beer. In my view, it is an excellent community project from a big company giving something to the people. Entry is free.

Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has announced that fees charged for rubbish disposal in Bangkok are going to rise from 1 Baht a day to over 3 Baht a day. Another sensible decision. It appears that Bangkokians only pay 7% of the cost of rubbish disposal at the moment. I hear people shout 'but rubbish disposal should be paid from taxes' The trouble is very few 'garbage producing' people pay tax!

There are obviously other areas in Chiang Rai that have some good bars, restaurants etc but this map is about Jetyod Road only. It is the only area where there is P4P for available as far as I know but as I have stated elsewhere, P4P is not available in all the bars. So please do not assume it is.
